If you have used the hobiecats, please reply to this post. Thanks! Does a person have to have sailing skills to manage riding the hobiecat? Or is it easy for a person who does not have sailing skills to use? My husband and I are returning to CSA in March for our second visit. We can't wait! We saw couples using the hobiecats on our first visit. We also saw one couple come in way too fast when they were done, and it was very funny to here the scream the girl let out as a result.
