Hobie Kayak Bream Series

Now in its 10th season, the Hobie Kayak Bream Series has just finished up its second event for 2018. With Forster being a renowned bream arena, many Queenslanders make their way down each year to tough it out with the brute Forster bream. This year was no exception, with about a dozen of our customers trying their luck at securing a podium position. Unfortunately it was not to be for the QLD battalion with NSW dominating the top three spots…Needless to say, it’s great to see most ended up in the top half of a 75 strong field!

While we wait until June to get our round up here on the Gold Coast, it is a good time to think about whether you might be interested in having a go at tournament kayak fishing…with a ‘first timer’ entry; you can experience the Bream Series for yourself – at no cost! With a prize pack up for grabs for bringing home the biggest two day weight; you’ve got nothing to lose and a prize pack to gain.

To find out more on the Bream Series, head over to http://www.hobiefishing.com.au or contact either shop. The fun awaits!

SEQHS Super Bash @ Bribie Island

The South East Queensland Hobie® Sailing group held their inaugural Super Bash at Bongaree Beach, Bribie Island on Sunday. Greeted with beautiful sailing weather; the group received a Hobie sailing ‘shakedown’ from Mal while Trish judged the MacGyver righting challenge cup. Throw in some SUPing, swimming and snacking, the result was that the day was a great success and I’m sure many are looking forward to the next one!

If you own a Hobie Cat in QLD and are looking to join a group of like-minded Hobie sailors, head over to the SEQHS sailing Facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/groups/SouthEastQueenslandHobieSailing/

Stay cool, be sun smart

With QLD experiencing some searing hot days of late; now is a perfect time to refresh yourself on how best to prepare for a day on the water. Slip, slop and slap is critical! Cover as much of your body as possible with UV rated clothing – ideally UV50+ like the Gill Top and Trousers, a wide brim hat (Hobie does a great one!), sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen for re-application throughout the day. Ensure you have sufficient water on board, dehydration and/or heat stroke can turn your day out on the water into a nightmare. Stay cool, stay sunscreen’d up and stay hydrated!
