    I’m sure some have boats they use to find surf. Let’s see them. My Hobie skiff.

    beauty, Hobie's classic...and can never go wrong with an older Yami..

    here's my latest two...the blue one a 40 year old Clackacraft Magnum barn find I fully rebuilt for flyfshing that has taken well over a hundred King salmon on the local rivers...the white one a 13' Sterling I modified the stern on so I could mount a 40hp...could do well over 40 once propped right...hilariously fun tiller runabout..just better hang on 20170719_124952.jpg IMG_20180718_165635.jpg king.jpg

    Phil Edwards designed those Hobie skiffs. I had one and loved it.

    Cool Hobie! Brings me back to mid 80's. Fun little skiffs.

    Great thread. One of those things I've never gotten around to but always wanted to have at some point in my life. Stoked to see what you guys are doing.

    When I was a kid, we had our 36' sailboat and inflatable at the San Diego Yacht Club - so when we felt "adventurous" we'd take one or the other out to the point or to breaks just on the other side of Point Loma. Sure seemed adventurous to tie your zodiak to a giant kelp stalk and paddle over to the spot at 13 or 14. Or to surf a couple of breaks at the far end of the Cliffs with no one else out.

    Nothing compared to what a lot of guys do, but when I look back on it I realize what a fine opportunity we had and I really thank my parents for making it possible and for trusting us. Well, mostly trusting us. I'm pretty sure we always told my dad we were taking the boat out when it was big and we were supposed to be in school.... :)

    I'm kayak/shore angler, but planning to get a boat soon. Always wanted to have one, finally getting closer :)

    Lot's of Yak fishermen down here. I still remember my first expedition in a sit in yak' and I landed a 8-10lb monster bluefish. I was taken for a ride!
