We put a BIG sail rudder and the turbo fins on our Outback yesterday... OH H*** YES...What a HUGE difference in performance. This thing now cruises fast with VERY little effort and turns on a dime and leaves 8 cents change.... I highly recommend it

I agree as well. I only used my Outback twice with the original equipment before upgrading the fins and the rudder. I have been very happy with the improvement.

I demoed an Outback with the regular fins and found it quite "sluggish" for my 225lbs(6'5"). I had the dealer swap out to the super turbo fins and what a DIFFERENCE! I bought a Yellow Hobie outback that day with the Turbo fins! He threw in a set off Wheels and the turbo fins for free plus the rental of the Outback was free! Go see Alain in Sooke, BC if you want a Hobie on Vancouver Island!
