After conquering surfboards, kayaks, catamarans, and apparel, Hobie has finally entered a new era in recreational water sports.
If you are an extreme surfer, distance racer or a casual expedition paddler, we have the right equipment for you. With over 50 years of innovation on the water, Hobie has designed a line of Stand Up Paddleboards to meet every paddler’s needs. Hobie’s SUP models are the result of years of water experience from our test pilots Chuck Patterson, Bryce and TJ Saeman, Hobie and Jeff Alter, Byron Kurt and world-class Hobie shapers Mark Johnson, Gary Larson, and Terry Martin.
Our line of Stand Up Paddleboards and Red Paddle Co are designed to meet a variety of needs and conditions. Not many people realize that Hobie Alter pioneered the construction of modern fibreglass/foam surfboards, in California, way back in the 50s.
These days, the Hobie Surf company brings to Australia the Hobie range of Stand up Paddle boards. We now carry a huge range of boards for general use, flat water paddling, beginner surfing, experience surfing, flat water, and surf racing. We even have inflatables that suit most purposes. Our latest SUPs are high tech construction for high strength and low weight. Many feature the new BCX and HCX construction which utilize the strength of bamboo veneer and epoxy resin.
