Passive Boating: SUPS, kayaks & small sailboats

There is nothing like getting out on the water… and it looks like millions of you agree with 1 in 4 of us, having access to or doing some form of boating each year.

But don’t be fooled, you don’t need a lot of ‘stuff’ to get out on the aqua. One of the fastest-growing sectors in boating is passive boating. Passive boating means no engines, no servicing, no worries. You–or the wind–are the fuel. We are talking SUPs, kayaks, small sailing boats and more!

We test drove Sunstate Hobie’s vast selection of kayaks… even a sailing boat and SUPs, including the stable Hobie Mirage Eclipse. It’s easy to manoeuvre with pedal power, stable –a SUP for all seasons– and it means not getting wet.

Check out the Brisbane Boat Show for more information about passive boating, tow toys or that dream boat you have always wanted. It’s on at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in South Bank from August 23-25, 2019. Click here to purchase tickets.
