We've been a Hobie dealer in Arizona for a long time and have seen a wide range of do-it-yourself shade covers added by owners to their kayaks. But it seems like there was always something that never worked quite right with these setups. Finally, Hobie had their engineers come up with their own design, and it's a winner! Its lightweight but effective coverage allows you to stay on the water even in the middle of a southwest summer day with shade protection that clothing and hats just can't match.
This bimini top features UPF 50+ fabric and the pole support structure can be angled for sun and rain protection no matter the time of day. No drilling or installation issues - it just quickly attaches to existing points on your Hobie kayak. Taking it down is just a matter of seconds. Anglers can even cast around it! Can be made to work with other brands of sit-on-top kayak models with some minor modifications.
We carry these in blue, sun yellow, and gray colors at our store, and we can easily ship to you as well. Availability changes daily, so call to make sure we have your color of choice in before ordering, or we'll let you know before your order is charged. Place your order here or give us a call at 480-348-8917 for more information or to place any Hobie kayak, parts or fishing accessories you may need!
