Congratulations again to Hobie Sponsored Angler Devin Hallingstad who set another world record by bringing in his 212lb Black Marlin in our April 2014 Pelagic Pursuit Kayak Fishing Tournament. That record was just slightly more impressive than his previous tournament results when he blew all our minds in our Nov 2013 Pelagic Pursuit Kayak Fishing Tournament when he landed a Billfish, multiple Ahi, multiple Ono and a Mahimahi all in a single day.
Check Devin's photos by clicking on this link to see all those Nov 2013 Tournament results
And Devin still holds the Kayak Fishing record for landing his 176lb Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna) by kayak!
And then his 112lb Sailfish (close to another record kayak catch) coming in at our March 25th 2012 Pelagic Pursuit Tournament wasn't too shabby either. Click the links to see the photos and read more details of his achievements.

Once upon a Hawaiian adventure I was chastised by a land based mammal and first heard the saying "Eh Brah! You stay plenty pupule"!
I accepted the label at the time but thought about it over the years and have come to the conclusion that a little bit Akamai (smarts) combined with a little bit Plenty Pupule (crazy) probably makes life a whole lot more enjoyable than some of the more cautious alternatives.
Anyway, getting back to business we've now got most of our products listed online and our retail store in Kona gives easy access to our west side (Big Island) residents and we're still offering free delivery to our Hilo side customers. We're also offering super deals and inexpensive delivery statewide on plenty kine kayaks, choke accessories, and many of those accessories can also be shipped (inexpensively) nationwide as well.
Our gear can satisfy even the most safety minded sports enthusiast or if you stay a little pupule like me, or God forbid, straying well past the edge into the more dangerous waters, we got the gear that will keep you afloat and, and if there is any justice in the universe, bring you safely back to shore. That is, as long as you're not battling high trades on the wrong side of the island, hooked up to an oversized, seaward bound Marlin. Don't laugh, similar things have happened!
We've greatly expanded our inventory now with more selection in stock than any other Hawaii Watersport retailer. Currently stocking Hobie, Feel Free Malibu, Necky and Ocean Kayaks as well as Stand Up Paddleboards, Catamarans, Fishing and sailing gear, hang gliding instruction/gear, camping gear, rack systems, active wear, and snorkel stuff. Besides our retail stores, our warehouse holds hundreds of kayaks and so many accessories my checkbook gets misty eyed every time I mention it.
We're expanding our Hawaii Kayak Club, our Hawaii Kayak Fishing Group and our Hawaii (Hobie) Island Sailing Group and always looking to add new members. Whether you're new to the sport, an avid kayaker, or a seasoned veteran, or if you're just thinking about getting into kayaking we have demo and rental gear available for you to try out, get the kayaking experience and meet others, pupule, and not so pupule, at the same time.
If you've been missing out on the adventure it's not because it's so hard to find. Check out our Hawaii Kayak Fishing group, our Big Island Kayak Club, or our Hawaii Island Sailors group as well as our Kayak Circumnavigation of the Big Island, take a deep breath and give yourself permission to let just a little Plenty Pupule enter into your life!
