Windward Boats has been awesome in supporting kayak fishing in Hawaii.. Joe and Lorraine are really cool people to work with and so down to earth.. They have been huge in the success of the team CKT and in helping us to compete and promote the sport of kayak fishing in Hawaii.. Definitely without there help things would not be the same for me right now...

Windward boats is the exclusive Hobie dealer on Oahu thanks to the work of champion Hobie sailor dean froome.. If you want to buy a brand new Hobie you have to go here.. They have a good selections of Hobie's on hand and will order whatever you need...

I love the Hobie philosophy... Paddle, Pedal and Sail..  this means every Hobie with the mirage drive also will sail... the mirage drive acts as a dagger board (key) and is awesome to help point them up wind.. these Hobie are equipped with a drop in sail post.. Hobie's are very nice if you want to utilize you whole body and take advantage of the winds... Go check out Lorraine for a FREE DEMO of any one of their kayaks... Try before you buy.. now that's awesome..

So true Boogie... The service at Windward Boats is terrific.  Nice people for sure.  The Hobie's are very interesting boats.  Was blown away when I saw you sailing upwind while I was paddling hard.  Looks like a good boat to use on windy days too.  You have more options when the conditions for a regular yak might not be so hot.  The full body workout with the Mirage Drive is also a cool feature.
If you fish, they will come. . .

Ditto.   And if I didn't have my wife to "control" what I spend, I would've dropped two paychecks over there already. Lots of good stuff there.  And all of the people are friendly.  In fact, we may have a 27ft boat in the family pretty soon from there.   :)
just stoked to be out there.

I've known Joe Adams owner of Windward Boats since the 3rd grade, he's a straight shooter and the rare honest businessman.  I've been giving him my business since he first opened shop in 1984.  I highly recommend Windward Boats.

I agree 110% Windward Boats has awesome service. I bought my Hobie Pro Angler from them. Loraine helped me out so much. She even threw in some free stuff when I bought my kayak. I will definitely return their and give them my business.
