Just got a Hobie Maui. I was nervous at first that it might not hold me (6 foot, 205 pounds), but it holds fine. It does fill up with a little water when I take it out, but nothing too bad. I took it out into the Gulf of Mexico yesterday, it rode fine through the waves. I even packed a tackle box (Yak Pak) with a fishing pole and went fishing. Had three dolphins swim 15 yards away next to me.
I would definitely recommend the Hobie Maui for whatever you want to do.
- Fairly Long
- Cargo room
- You get wet from the waist down
- For someone my weight, it sometimes is tricky trying to move in the kayak
