Itching to Give the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island Kayak a Try

ACK Houston’s prostaffers, RexDelRey and Dphams, had been planning a trip to hit the rigs on their Hobie Mirage Tandem Island Kayak for a while. It was a week earlier than they had originally planned, but Daniel called Rex on his drive home to Conroe, Texas asking if Rex would be interested in hitting the surf the following day. Rex had just talked himself out fishing the marshes in Galveston so he could get some rest… but he couldn’t resist.

On the Water

The conditions were not ideal, but the pair decided to go ahead and launch so RexDelRey could get a feel of the ride and plan how to shoot their next trip. It was quite an adventure with swells around 4 to 6 ft with some reaching 8 to 10 ft as they got near the end of the Surfside/Quintana jetties. They made it out to the first buoy and saw a big storm approaching and decided to head back in. They went full sail back in and rode the swells in… hauling! They caught a big one and almost turned sideways – but thanks to Dphams quick reaction, he immediately pulled the sails and slowed them down. It was a great time. You’ll definitely be catching more collaborations with RexDelRey in Dphams in the future. Next time, they say they’ll be “catching us some fish, boi!”
