We are developing a completely new rudder system specifically designed for the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island and Adventure Island. The new rudder system will be fully functional without the short-term modifications currently provided on all 2011 Adventure Islands shipped. Our engineers have already begun testing several new systems, and we anticipate finishing the process in the coming months. Once the new system is available, it will be provided to all 2011 Adventure Island owners to replace the existing Twist and Stow rudder system.

We consider the new system to be a greatly improved one, and are eager to get it out to you as soon as the engineering and testing has been completed to our satisfaction.
