About Southwest Kayaks and Hobie Kayaks

Southwest Kayaks is the oldest and largest Hobie kayak dealer in Arizona, with locations in Lake Havasu City and Tempe (dba Lowergear Outdoors). Hobie is the only brand kayak we sell and we have dozens of models & colors to choose from.

No other make kayak can measure up to what Hobie offers. They feature advanced engineering, superior ergonomics and the unsurpassed Hobie warranty, plus they are made in the USA.

The unique and patented Mirage Drive pedal system is what sold us on Hobies. Call or come in for a free demo paddle pedal and you’ll be sold as well. 1-928-680-9257.

We are also a dealer for the Thule. Faster, safer, and easier. Spend less time loading and unloading and more time on the water. Our carriers help you do the things you love.

The World Is A Water Park, And Since 1950 We’ve Made The Best Rides.

We’ve surfed. We’ve sailed. And to each sport, we’ve brought flat-out, live-fast, have-fun, adventure.

All of which is precisely what you get with each of our models of Hobie Kayaks. Of course, we’ve also brought something brilliantly new to the sport of kayaking: Pedals.

Each of our Hobie Mirage® models has our patented MirageDrive® pedaling system. Which will take you further, faster, with a huge emphasis on fun.

Here’s how the MirageDrive actually works: you pedal by stepping alternately left and right, not unlike an exercise stepper, to drive two underwater flippers. They work much like a penguin’s fins to propel the Hobie Mirage with surprising speed and ease. All of which lets you go into kayaking. Feet first.

Leave it to Hobie to make kayaks that fly. Each Hobie Kayak is a seamless, roto-molded, polyethylene torpedo. Sturdy. Stable. And indeed, swift. The result? boats that effortlessly, gracefully, glide.

It’s fast, it’s sleek, it reduces wetness. All our kayaks have a closed-deck design with self-draining scuppers and seats to keep you dry.

But wait, there’s more. Not only are Hobie Kayaks easy to paddle, they’re easy to pull. With sure-grip handles both fore and aft. For those rare moments when you’re not paddling, most models offer on-deck paddle storage. Our molded-in cup holders bring beverage service to the main cabin.
