Hobie Cat the Pontch

As an adult, I’ve always preferred the simpler of two machines. I like motorcycles, but I like bicycles and scooters more. I like big boats, but I REALLY like paddling (kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards).

Hobie Cats are perfect for minimalist sailing. And… they’re FAST. The only downside is, they’re kind of hard to maneuver around a marina or pull into a slip because they are 100% wind powered. Beach entry is ideal. Or, if you’re like my friend Hoover, you have a buddy who has a 20′ Hobie and a nice place on the water to launch from.

Here’s Hoover having a blast on Lake Pontchartrain:

AND, here’s that awesome Hawaiian dude who gets his catch almost stolen by a HUGE shark:
