Hello, I purchased a 2013 4 month old TI. How can I transfer the Hobie Beach Club registration from the previous owner to me? Thank you.

Not sure the answer - but if you just register through the site at this link http://www.hobiecat.com/hobie-island-club/
That should get you pointed in the right direction.

I recently registered my new AI on the site roughly 2-3 weeks ago. How do I know what the next steps/confirmation is??

Anything mailed?

Thank you

I think the Hobie Island club mostly runs thru facebook, and are typically organized locally through dealers and specific areas. If you like them on facebook your in. If there is a local Island club in your area, your dealer will know about it. The one in my area (Sarasota FL) is fairly active and they do a lot of fun things together.
There are other groups on meetup (www.meetup.com) and Watertribe (www.watertribe.org) of like minded people with similar interests as well if your into that stuff. We belong to several.

You might get a letter and maybe a bumper sticker of something in the mail.

Once you get the mandatory Hobie Island club tattoo on your forearm (like sailers) and secret decoder ring then your in if you survived the initiation ritual. (just kidding, don't get a tatoo...)

Hi Island Owners!

Here is the process Hobie goes through to assist you and joining in with your local Hobie Island Club.
It starts by you going to the Hobie Island Club website to register.
Here is the Hobie Island Club site: http://www.hobiecat.com/hobie-island-club/

Hobie Island Club – data is gained when people register for the club on the Hobie island club site.
When an island owner registers within 3-4 weeks they are mailed a Hobie Island Club tee-shirt and sticker with the Hobie Island Club logo.
Choosing or assigning a local club
If there is already an established club on the Island Club map, the owner can either “choose their club” and register off the map that way or a
An owner is assigned the closest “local” club for those that don’t choose one themselves.

HIC Facebook page is the social area for people to get questions answered, to meet other owners, post pictures, stories, etc.
Island owners can sail with any Island Club, though the goal right now is to build the clubs locally, then regionally.

No Club in their area?

*When we see several Island owners in the same area we will contact the local Hobie dealer and put together an Island Club,
sometimes these registered owners become the Captain.

I hope this helps!
