I bought my Hobie sail kit, PowerPole Micro anchor package from HWS. James team’s services were awesome – swift responses always. Deliveries were instant. Highly recommended Hobie dealer! Honest, impeccable service and very trustworthy!

Highly recommend HWS!! Purchased my first kayak, the advice and professionalism of your staff is second to none. No pressure sales, friendly service, great after sales support, couldn’t ask for more as a customer. Thank you HWS!! You have a great team.

James and Andrew have been incredibly ????????We had some hassle with hobie suplier , not sending a new kayak as requested, and HWS went out of their way, in time, and expense to correct the serious error. We now have a genuinely brand new kayak delivered to our door.So 6 stars, wouldn't shop any where else .⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A 5 star thumbs up to Hobie and the guys at HWS. Hobie has stood by its product and replaced my 2019 outback after some damage even though it was out of warranty. I have been and will continue to be a great advocate for an excellent kayak which I use and enjoy often. Add to that the Company backed up the hype and it is even better. The guys at HWS looked after me, took the kayak to Hobie Australia and in the end organised the replacement. It is very pleasant to be able to say something positive about the whole experience. Can't do customer satisfaction much better than that. Well done all and thanks again.

The legends at HWS should be your go-to if you are in the market for a Hobie. They’re friendly, helpful and best of all they know their stuff. I picked up a Compass and they were able to fit an extra mesh net that I decided I wanted on the day of pickup with no hassles at all!

Really impressed! When searching for the popular Ultra Pinnacle Series III PFD (Level 50) - Hi Vis Orange, many places I tried were out of stock.At HWS not only was the colour and size I wanted in stock, the price 'including' delivery was well below (around $40 less), than most I'd seen online but ordering was also easy and delivery very fast.I've added a pic of my old red/grey one which has been well used above the new high vis orange one.I've been v happy with the design and comfort so when I saw the high vis one recently, for harbour, ocean and poor visibility conditions I thought, I have to have to have one of these!

I honestly don’t know why it’s taken me so long to write a review of Hunter Water Sports.I’ve been a customer of HWS for almost a Year after purchasing a Hobie PA 12 from someone online.The staff, service and professionalism at HWS has been nothing but outstanding in every way. They’ve extremely knowledgeable, are more than happy to help and are very reactive to issues. Case in point, I ordered a Hobie H Crate last Week and when it arrived last Wednesday it was missing some clips. I called HWS that Day and I received the missing components in Three Days.Guys, keep doing what you’re doing. It’s actually a good thing that you’re so far away from me; otherwise I’d be in the shop buying stuff every Day.

Very easy going people, no high pressure sales tactics which made the decision to purchase my new Outback very easy. Was pleasently surprised by the fast and free delivery as well.Love the Yak and am really enjoying no longer being stuck on the shore or waiting for my mates to want to take their boats out.

Thanks to James and the team for excellent service. If you are interested in buying a Hobie these guys are the ones to talk to. The store is absolutely heaven for everything kayaking. I can’t express how important is to choose the best when it comes to big decisions like buying a Hobie and choosing all the accessories to go with it. The team at HWS are the best at what they do and they will sort you out!!! Cheers Michael.

The team at HWS helped me select the appropriate kayak and fit it out perfectly for the sort of fishing I do. They're competitively priced, have excellent communication skills and managed to sort out everything I needed in rapid time so that I could take my brand new Hobie Compass with me on a rapidly approaching holiday. Thank you very much guys! I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Absolutely love HWS, they are very responsive to questions and offer fantastic service, purchased a 2022 Hobie Compass from them and they were kind enough to install an additional hatch for free. Huge thanks to James and the team.

Exceptional service and pricing is what you will get.My recent kayak purchase was a unique fit out put together by the team after back and forth discussions regarding the layout, then delivered to my house.I would not go anywhere else
