I ordered a Sandpiper Sand Chair by Stansport from Amazon. It fits perfectly. I may not even use the wood blocks. It was $22 with prime shipping.

Great idea to take a beach chair, but why couldn´t Hobie develop a better seat for the inflatables. Question to Matt: isn´t it possible to create a seat like the seat for the Outback 2015?

Thanks for an answer
serious

What about a stadium seat, which spreads the weight evenly instead of on legs? Many probably have other drawbacks, but some look promising like the Rio Adventure My Pod Seat which is also intended for canoeing.

I have a kayak with similar strap on seat to the inflatables, and it kills me with back pain due to insufficient back support. I just worry about an i12s giving similar results, where my big tall torso just levers down and crushes the back. I have to wait a week or two between outings now due to this.

Hobie is introducing a radically improved "vantage ct seat" for 2015 rotomolds. They have a video of it if you click on the HOBIE tab that drops down on the upper left of this forum screen.

I bought an additional seat for the i9s and successfully installed it at the back of the i12s. If you look carefully, you can strap it on quite tightly using what's already there.

It's a 2014 i12s model though, so I don't know if it will work for older models.

There isn't much leg space so I reckon it's good for a small person and not an adult. I had successfully taken my 8 year old out quite comfortably for several hours.
