For 22 years the Hobie Centre has been offering the range of Hobie watersports products from our base at Rockley Beach. Our focus has always been matching you your perfect craft; from Hobie Kayaks to Hobie Cats, SUPs and pedalboards. Being based by the water means you can try the products thoroughly before you buy. After purchasing we always offer a full handover, so that when you leave you are prepared and ready to get the best out of your chosen kit.
