We are rank beginners, we admit it… while we toyed with the idea of getting a kayak in 2004 when we lived in Hampton, VA, we never acted. A couple of moves later found us in Fredericksburg VA, close to lakes, rivers, the Chesapeake Bay, and even the ocean is about 2 hours away. So when an experienced kayaker friend mentioned the Hobie series of kayaks that you peddle not paddle, I became intrigued and then Debbie got interested.
- A month later we bought a Golden Papaya (yellow) colored Hobie Oasis tandem kayak.
We usually get out about every two weeks on it in one of the local rivers, lakes, or reservoirs. It is great exercise and something we can do together. These pages will chronicle some of our kayak outings. The following video shows how it works if you are unfamiliar with Hobie peddle kayaks.
