Dizzy’s London International – UK Hobie Fishing Worlds Qualifier

Dizzy’s London International – UK Hobie Fishing Worlds Qualifier

I have been lucky enough to take part in four Hobie Fishing World Championship events all across the world, and last year I had a crazy dream. I wanted kayak fishermen in the United Kingdom to experience the same thrill that I have, and rub shoulders with international kayak fishermen from across the world. We have some great kayak fishing competitions in the UK, which have a really good vibe.

Vogalonga June 2017- What a way to see Venice!

Vogalonga June 2017- What a way to see Venice!

The Vogalonga is a 30km paddling/rowing race through the city of Venice and the lagoon up to Burano. The event was first created 42 years ago as a response to the overuse of powerboats in the city and the subsequent damage that the wake of these boats was doing to the buildings. This year we took 8 Hobie Oasis and 3 Hobie Eclipses over to Venice to participate in the event.
