Purchased turbo fins and a few odd and ends. Parts were mailed promptly but the US Post Office returned the items for some reason. I called Southwind and they got the parts right back to me. The parts were sent promptly and sent again even faster. This will be my go to store for Kayak parts and accessories.
Quick delivery, very competitive reasonable pricing, customer support from ordering to receipt top notch.. will be my definite go to for all my Hobie needs. Thank you
Perfect transactions thx.
I have a 2018 Mirage 180 Oasis (tandem). I mistakenly ordered the incorrect Turbo fins ($137). So I sent them back and got the correct turbo fins that fit this mirage drive. I am HUGELY disappointed with the fins. They are much smaller than the older version. They are only 2" longer than the original fins and cost more! ($160). At my calculation, that's $40 / inch. I'm also not impressed with the additional speed (or drag) it provides. I know I paid premium for a Hobie Oasis but I feel totally ripped off by the Turbo Fins. Southwind was great in the return and buying the correct fins. Hobie totally let me down on this product.
I have a 2012 Outback and boy do these make a difference. If you have the sail kit, this also helps keep your boat from slipping sideways as well. Easy to install. Took me about 15 min. A good performance increase over the stock fins. Measured 3-4 mph with the stock fins, 5-6 mph with these fins on the Outback.
