If you want to try something different, Appomattox River Company carries Hobie pedal kayaks.
Hobie Alter founded the Hobie Cat Co. in the early 1950s after converting his parents' garage into a wood-working shop. In the early years of the company, Hobie focused primarily on the design and production of surf boards. Hobie released his first boat model in the late 1960s. According to the Hobie website, the early Hobie boat model was an adaptation of the Polynesian catamaran. In the following years, the company expanded and created various designs and models of lightweight, cutting edge kayaks.
The Hobie Company is a prominent manufacturer of kayaks. The technology of Hobie kayaks branch away from the traditional kayak models by offering foot pedals. These kayaks cater more toward recreational kayaking and fishing as opposed to whitewater kayaking.
