Inflatable SUP with Mirage Drive

Postby maverick » 14 Dec 2015, 20:01

Something a bit different - not sure if it has been posted on here before. An inflatable SUP with a Mirage drive. Fits in the boot, can be used as a SUP, or with the mirage drive sitting down. Probably limited in it's use as a yak, but on small lakes and estuarys/rivers it could be pretty relaxing. Not sure of the weight, but might fit into a back pack :eh: for exploring remote areas.

Same price as most of the hobies with mirage drives and the new seats. Seams reasonably priced.
We grabbed a SUP to go with the kayaks rather than a hybrid but it would be nice in a few rivers I know or if you want to fly fish perhaps from a kayak (hybrid)
Live long, fish hard and hopefully catch something.

Wonder if you can buy it without drive as an option, then if you use it as a second skinny water option you just swap drives. Even minus seat and swap that too? That should halve its price

Be interesting.
Seat looks a little different.

They make it as a SUP without the casette for the drive, no seat and no rudder. It's about $1600 with the manual pump. So for a grand you get a fair bit. I imagine it is because it has almost no shipping cost compared to importing the whole kayak.

Might be good value if you have a worn out mirage drive and want to upgrade to glidetech as well?

They sell them wthout the drives, which is probably the target market. Something to throw in the boot when you are going away and can't take the yak with you, but want something to fish from. Saves about $1,000 I believe.
