This is the "Surf To Summit"
seat that I've been using now for over six months and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT
For my purposes it was well worth the money (about $190). I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs more back support and sails for more than a few hours at a time.
I'm on the water for anywheres from 4 and 6 hours a day. The 2" of foam padding on the bottom keeps my butt a little higher up so I'm not sitting in as much water as before. My back doesn't hurt at the end of the day like it used to, and that's a real good thing for this 60 year old Sun E Sailor
This seat is very supportive, adjusts easily and holds it's position all day long. They offer a Speed Clip attachment if you prefer that over the traditional brass type, as well as different accessories and Packs that can attach to the back of the seat.
I didn't have to drill any new holes to install it. I just swapped out the two fittings from behind the original seat with Hobie's Eye Fittings (Part# 7116001) and used the existing Eye Fittings in the front to attach the 4 brass clips.
That's it... D.U.N. done. It couldn't be easier
