Transporting your Hobie kayaks to and from the beach is a piece of cake so long as you are properly equipped. Here’s how Morgan Promnitz of Hobie Fishing totes a Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 12 and a pair of Mirage Outbacks using a medium-sized pick-up truck.

So I’ve got a Pro Angler 12 loaded in the bed of this truck. It’s a short bed truck, so we’ve got the Boonedox T-Bone right here. It extends out a little bit, and allows you to get the stern of the kayak up onto these pads and it rolls in there really nice and easy.
And then once we have it strapped down with the Hobie straps we add a little red flag on the back right here for safety. Check your local state laws. A lot of places require that. Up on top of the Thule bed racks right here we have two Outbacks. Again we use the Hobie straps to secure them. Everything’s tied down nice and secure. We’re going to leave the beach and go and grab some lunch.
