I've owned and used many kayaks but the Hobie Mirage is my favorite kayak. The Mirage is so versatile, full of features and options, when the time comes I will be definitely be buying a new Hobie kayak.

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 7/28/2015

After 2 years of using it in a lake, the boat is a very fun and easy hull to get accustomed to, esp. for novices. My 7 y.o. uses it primarily. I dropped the rating from a 9 to an 8 because of the fact that there is no rear hatch like the bigger Mirage drive yaks have. This is important because replacement of any of the 4 rudder cables becomes very difficult working blindly. I sold my Sport and got an Oasis & my son can use my Revo 11 from now on.

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 7/27/2015

As an addendum to my August 2014 review, our Sport has been reliable, fun, and light-weight. My 7 year old son enjoys it, but found himself a bit tired especially following me in my Revos. Then the hog crimp that holds the bungee cord to the black control cord that helps pull up the rudder came off, and what should be a simple fix cannot be fixed because the Sport has no rear hatch in the tankwell! Hobie told me that I would have to cut the Spectra line inside and run through and tie the loose ends myself. The rudder works fine but it needs to be manually pulled up. That's when I decided to sell this boat (on ebay and Craigslist Hudson Valley), and stick with my Revo 11 & 13, and just got an Oasis for tandem sessions.

The Hobie Mirage Sport is one sweet boat. In spite of my age (75) and not being a large woman (5'2"), I can load it in the pickup, use the wheels to get it in the lake and get great exercise while enjoying the ride. This weekend the fish were jumping off my bow, and the sandhill cranes were walking the shore. Life is good!

Submitted by: paddler201961 on 7/16/2015

Our Hobie Mirage Series SPORT kayak includes the Mirage Drive. We replaced the Mirage Drive fins with bigger fins and when you peddle hard, you can turn this kayak into a speedboat and make it plane. What a blast! It is comfortable and you can pedal it at your own pace so you can be out on the water having fun for quite a while. We liked this kayak because it only weighs 48 pounds and is easy to move around. We also purchased the wheel assembly that fits into the hull which makes it very easy to move around. It has a capacity of 225# and a length of 9'7". There are a lot of options that can be purchased for this kayak. It is an excellent kayak and we highly recommend it.

Submitted by: mccandrj on 5/20/2015

I have a 2014 Hobie Outback and now a 2015 Hobie Sport. I love both of them. I only fish from my kayaks, and use them both in the ocean, bays and rivers.

The Outback has load weight I can use for fishing all day, but the Sport half the load weight. So, I use the Sport for short trips and fairly calm water. I know it can take a sea, but not with a load. I'm 200+, so that is almost maxed out, so a fishing rod, some lures and a water bottle is it for me to feel safe. But, very maneuverable and great for the back rivers, I wouldn't give it up for anything.

Submitted by: Rexlion on 5/18/2015

The Mirage pedal drive is a great way to get around. Leg strength is greater than arm strength, the drive location precludes yaw, the rudder works great. I even did a little fishing from this yak, both trolling and casting; try trolling with a paddle in your hands!

The Sport was well made, and light enough for me to load onto the SUV roof by myself (I'm in my 50s BTW). I could pedal up a nice bow wave, so I know it's speedy enough. Stability was reasonably good when sitting in the kayak, but exiting or entering it was a time for caution and no way would I ever want to stand up! A SUP feels steadier than the Sport, thanks to its flat hull.

My biggest dislike for the Sport, though, was the sitting position. Pedaling puts the knees at about stomach (almost chest) level, with the back semi-reclining against an insubstantial seat back. I could not get the seat to give me adequate support to keep my back from hurting after about 30-40 minutes. And having my legs up all the time just gets old quickly. My longest continuous stretch in the Sport was about 2 hours, after which I felt so stiff and cramped, it was a chore to climb out of the kayak. So after owning this yak only 3 months, I sold it.

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 8/5/2014

I bought the 2014 Sport as a hull replacement for a used Sport I bought which may or may not have had a mirage drive well crack. They feel similar, but the new hull tweaks and front hatch is nice. I mainly let my 6 y.o. son pedal it, and he can keep up for short trips whereas he would not be able to if paddling. I'm not a fan of kayaks with wide beams, so that's why it gets a 9. Otherwise, it's a good boat for calm coastal or flatwater lakes, ponds, & slow rivers.

Submitted by: paddler234695 on 8/5/2012

We bought two Mirage Sports from someone (used), who only sold them because they were moving away from their water source, and we absolutely love them. Every time I take them out on the lake, I have people asking me about them and wanting to try mine. I probably should get a commission for all the Mirage Sports I am selling; everyone leaves saying they want to buy one.

I love the smooth pedaling and the versatility of pedaling, rowing or sailing. I can get a workout without feeling like I'm working too hard, and have been able to get up very close (within a few feet) of loons because it is so quiet. I wanted something I could handle on my own (in my 50's, but feel like early 40's....5'4, smaller woman) and I can get these in and out of the water by myself. I definitely like having the wheels to help in hauling.

Submitted by: paddler234360 on 11/23/2011

I bought a Hobie Mirage Sport after trying a friends larger Mirage model. I needed something that was under 10' to fit in a cargo trailer. I am VERY impressed with the Hobie construction and engineering. Stable and comfortable.

I have used the Sport in mountain lakes, rivers, and the protected coastal water in the Gulf of Mexico - and definitely prefer it over my other brand sit-in (which, fortunately, my wife prefers). It is heavy, though. For accessories, I bought the sail (decent in limited wind conditions) and the Hobie wheels, that make moving it around much easier. I bought mine from Super Sport Marine in Kearney, NE, having had a great buying experience there with a sailboat - and just as good once again with this Hobie.

Submitted by: paddler201961 on 4/14/2011

This Hobie kayak is made of rotomolded Super Linear polyethylene II and weighs just 48#! I upgraded the "MirageDrive" fins with the turbo kit. If you peddle hard enough, you can make a nice bow wave and nearly make "hull speed" but I bet you will not be able to keep it up for long! I suggest pulling the rudder and turbo fins out of the water before venturing into the grass areas or you will have some fun breaking free. The paddle that is supplied with the kayak appears to be graphite epoxy construction and it works very well. It is an awesome boat and you will not be disappointed if you purchase one. There is a dealer for Hobie kayaks in just about every state. Have fun!

Submitted by: dregsfan on 12/10/2010

I've owned my Sport for about two years and have loved every minute of it. The Mirage pedal propulsion system is amazingly effective, reliable, easy to install and when you find a comfortable cadence you can just keep on going for ages. The seat is dry, easy to adjust and very comfortable. I leave the rudder down when paddling unless I'm going to be doing some maneuvering. I also purchased the sportsman package and sail kit. Both are well worth the money.

Hobies are expensive, but there's nothing else like them on the water. If you want a craft that can be very versatile and fun to use... this is the one for you.

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 9/13/2010

For a while, I debated getting a Hobie Sport and eventually took the plunge. I'm so glad I did, because I love this little boat!
I am a woman, 5'5" and 120 lb. I don't have a lot of upper body strength, so the 48 lb. hull just about maxes out my limit for lifting. Luckily, I can fit the boat in the back of my SUV, and I bought the optional cart for transporting it from my car to launching sites.

The Mirage Drive pedaling system is the main selling point of this boat, in my opinion. My first outing on this boat lasted 3 hours and I left energized (and I am not a regular exerciser). You also stay 100% dry while pedaling, and if you're careful, you can peddle almost silently. This is great for wildlife viewing, compared to paddles waving all over the place. Paddling is also fun, but I recommend leaving the rudder down because it helps the boat track straighter. When I brought the rudder up, I seemed to get nowhere while paddling.

The boat is incredibly stable and comfortable. The cushioned seat is awesome. I can't wait to add the optional sail when I get out on more open waters. Although you don't go as fast as you would in an Adventure Island, it sounds like a blast!!

The only downside to this boat is the relatively low weight limit, and the price tag. Ultimately, I am so glad I went with the Sport because it is exactly what I wanted; however, it is rather "gadgety" for a boat and I worry that its lifespan will be short. From what I've heard, the Mirage Drive and rudder system require regular maintenance to keep them working smoothly. I hope to get years of enjoyment out of this boat!

Hobie Mirage Sport Kayak Review

The Hobie kayak is short, lightweight, 9 foot 7 inch kayak that works great as an all-around recreational or fishing kayak.

The first major innovation of the Mirage Sport is its movable seat. Designed to accommodate kayakers of varying heights, the seat can be moved forward or back to guarantee the perfect fit for both short and tall kayakers.

Like all new Hobie kayaks, the Mirage Sport is a pedaling kayak that makes use of Hobie’s MirageDrive System. MirageDrive is a pedal system that utilizes two underwater fins to power the boat. MirageDrive is a fisherman’s dream come true, offering true hands-free operation so you can concentrate on catching fish without the hassle of a paddle. By using pedals instead of paddle, you can cover more water at greater speeds with less effort while you are casting, reeling, taking photographs, or simply enjoying a sip of your favorite beverage.

Deck features of the Mirage Sport include a 6” twist and seal round hatch at the bow, a sail accessory mount (or use with optional sail kit), Hobie MirageDrive, a midship 8” twist and seal round hatch, a rudder control handle, 4 molded-in utility trays, 2 built in cup holders, 2 molded-in rod holders, a large rear cargo area.

The Hobie Mirage Sport is a great choice for both fisherman recreational kayak users looking for compact, lightweight pedaling kayak. It measures less than 10 feet in length, weighs only 48 pounds, and offers a weight capacity of 225 pounds. Easy to carry and to transport, the Mirage Sport is a great choice for solo kayakers who often need to carry the kayak, load, and tranport the boat without assistance from a partner or friend.

Before you proceed, here are options for the best fishing kayak for you!

The Sport is sized just right for quick escapes, nine easy feet of kick-back sit-on-top kayak with Hobie MirageDrive motivation.

Hop on and go. Stay awhile; the cushy Vantage CT will float away your cares. The Sport is a compact kayak, but doesn’t skimp on comfort or storage. Back friendly; you shouldn’t break a sweat getting to or from the water. Focus on fun; the durable polyethylene is carefree and tough. The Sport has a big heart that equally loves pleasure cruising and kayak fishing.

Hobie Mirage Sport Review

Frequently Asked Questions

Who and What is the Hobie Mirage Sport best for?

The Hobie Mirage Sport is a great kayak for people of all skill levels, though some people might appreciate the added features more than others. For starters, it’s heavily marketed towards fishermen. This is because it comes with fishing rod holders, tons of onboard storage that can be used for things like tackle boxes and bait, and the Drive system for hands-free navigation.

As for what, we recommend taking the Hobie Mirage Kayak out on lakes only. It’s not meant to be taken on rapids or in ocean waves that are any bigger than 2 feet.

Does the Hobie Mirage Sport come with a warranty?

All Hobie Kayaks come complete with a two-year limited warranty. As long as the damage or defects are not caused by improper storage, alterations or modifications, improper transportation, normal wear, etc., Hobie will replace your kayak free of charge.

Hobie Mirage Sport vs. Outback

The biggest difference between the two kayaks is the size. The Hobie Mirage Outback is much bigger and heavier and has a ton more onboard storage space while the Mirage Sport is smaller, a lot more agile, and works better for shorter trips because of the limited storage. This is why we recommend the Outback for heavier guys and gals over 200lbs.

The Mirage Outback also has a few different features than the sport. On the deck of the Outback are EVA deck pads that provide grip, comfort, and sound dampening, whilst fishing. There is also a built-on transducer shield that makes installing things like fish finders an absolute breeze. The Hobie Mirage also has a kick-up rudder that automatically lifts out of the water when you start reaching shallow points, an incredibly helpful feature. Lastly, you get dual rudder control with the Hobie Mirage Outback along with the Mirage Drive. This gives you added control and maneuverability.

Hobie Sport vs. Revolution 11

The Revolution 11 is definitely one of Hobie’s faster kayaks in their lineup and much faster than the Hobie Sport. It’s 11’6” in length and 29” in width, longer and thinner than the Hobie Sport, and better to cut through the water with. If you’re looking to get into any sort of kayak racing, this is the better one to get.

Other than the size and shape, the features are all pretty much the same. The Hobie Revolution has slightly more storage with the added 8” twist and seal hatch located on the stern.

How Do I store my Hobie Sport?

The Hobie Sport may not be that large compared to other kayaks, but because it is one large piece, you’ll need a large space to store it in. Hobie either recommends storing it on the ground in a clear area or atop a pair of crossbars with padding, as metal crossbars could leave dents or marks that are hard to get out. Try to not leave it in the water if you can, as grime and chemical build-up can take some life out of the kayak. Lastly, make sure that you keep it out of direct sunlight for long periods of time, as prolonged exposure to UV rays can warp and discolor the kayak.

How is the Included Paddle?

The Mirage Sport comes with a two-piece paddle in case you’re looking to conquer bigger waves or paddle for a nice little workout. It is made out a tough carbon and has just enough flex to let it cut through the waves without feeling too stiff. It also floats, so that if you end up dropping it in the water, you won’t have to dive to the depths of the murk to get it back.

Hobie Mirage Sport Review

A lot of small kayaks are essentially designed to be cheap options for budget-limited anglers. However, some anglers want all of the performance and features you need in a high-quality fishing kayak, but in a small package.

Fortunately, there is at least one such option on the market: the Hobie Mirage Sport. Measuring only 9 feet and 7 inches long, the Mirage Sport is great for those with small cars, as well as those who fish small waters, and want the agility and maneuverability a small vessel provides.

Pros

  • Despite being so small, hobie mirage sport kayak, the Mirage Sport comes with a ton of storage space
  • The MirageDrive 180 pedal system allows you to fly around small waters with ease
  • Quite stable for a small craft

Cons

  • No thigh pads are included
  • Many anglers will find the cockpit a bit tight
  • No skid plate is included, which leaves the hull vulnerable to scrapes and dings

Build Quality

Like most other Hobie kayaks, the Mirage Sport is a well-built craft. This helps distinguish it from many of the hobie mirage sport kayak ultra-short kayaks on the market, which are typically made with poor materials and substandard craftsmanship.

The Mirage Sport is made from rotomolded polyethylene and is available in five different colors: Seagrass Green, Papaya Orange, Hibiscus Red, Ivory Dune and Slate Blue. Unfortunately, the Mirage Sport does not come with a skid plate to protect the hull.

Storage Capacity

The Mirage Sport may only be 9-feet-and-change, but it provides a surprising amount of storage space. A twist-seal hatch is included in the cockpit and serves as a great place for storing small tools and tackle, and a mesh pocket is situated on each side of the cockpit.

A large, bungee-equipped cargo area is provided at the stern, and a large compartment is placed in the bow for larger tools and equipment. Two flush-mount rod holders are included, and the Mirage Sport also comes equipped with a paddle keeper and a drink holder.

Comfort

The Mirage Sport won’t accommodate very large anglers, but most small- to medium-sized paddlers will find that it provides adequate comfort. The cockpit isn’t especially long, hobie mirage sport kayak, so tall anglers may feel a bit cramped when piloting the craft.

Footwells are provided for those times when you’d rather paddle than peddle, and it comes with the Vantage CT seat, which is adjustable in four different ways and features a mesh back to keep your back cool during all-day fishing trips.

Stability

With a nearly 30-inch-long beam, the Mirage Sport is surprisingly stable. Some anglers may even find that it is stable enough to allow anglers to stand while fishing (although you’ll likely find it necessary to sit down when battling large fish). The craft only has a rated capacity of 225 pounds, so you’ll have to watch how much equipment you try to bring along, and it may not be able to support large anglers at all.

Maneuverability

The Mirage Sport is a nimble craft, which is easy to pilot around even the most crowded waters. It isn’t the fastest kayak around, but it does come with the MirageDrive 180 pedal system, which will allow you to use your leg muscles to power the craft. It also tracks well, thanks to its tri-hull design and included twist-and-stow rudder.

Unfortunately, even though the Mirage Sport is a fairly small vessel, it weighs a lot for its size. Tipping the scales at 78 pounds (when fully rigged), the Mirage Sport isn’t easy for a single person to carry. That’s not to say it is impossible for a single angler to carry to and from the water, but it will not be easy for small, elderly or physically limited people to do so. Handles at the bow and stern are provided to make it easier to carry.

Summary

The Mirage Sport is a great option for anglers who want a small-water craft that performs like a premium kayak. It isn’t a good choice for tall or large anglers, but it is great for pint-sized paddlers and it will probably accommodate most anglers of average body size.

The included MirageDrive 180 pedal system makes getting around a breeze, and the craft is surprisingly stable for such a tiny vessel. If you are looking for a small and nimble, yet supremely capable craft, the Mirage Sport is difficult to beat.
