Buried in the catamaran section was an impt kayak post https://www.hobie.com/forums//viewtopic ... 20&t=64296 about right pedal getting loose (and how to fix).

There is a nyloc nut holding the pedal on. As you pedal and if your style also causes and outboard motion the nut has been known to back off. We are now checking every right pedal and either replacing the nuts to be sure they are engaging the nyloc part and adding loc tite.

Pop the cap off and add some red loc tite and tighten the nut.

Above was about a 2018 model, but my 2015 was quite sloppy on right side. I dunno what size socket tool is needed - I was lucky a faucet installation plastic socket (and nothing else) would fit mine. After perfecting my right, I popped the left and found rust! So oiled both and pushed the caps hard to send them home.
