Hobie’s i9S was specifically designed for people shy on spare acreage but who dream of spending their time kayaking, fishing or sailing (via the optional Sail kit). You can rent or buy the Hobie i9S kayak today at our waterfront kayak sales and rental center at the English Village in Lake Havasu.

The compact i9S offers on-the-water performance that rivals rigid boats, and its rugged, PVC-vinyl construction and reinforced underside eliminate fears of rocky beaches.
