If you’re under 21, whether you’re into racing or just like to fly a little hull once in a while, you are a Hobie Youth and this page is for you! Check it out!

The “youts” would like to thank the North American Hobie Class general membership for the donations made to the youth program. Monies collected have been used in the grant program and for cool activities at our Hobie 16 Youth Championships.
