How to Keep Your Hobie®
Mirage® Eclipse Looking Beautiful
Every Hobie Mirage Eclipse board is master crafted. The ACX construction – Advanced Composite Epoxy – gleams with a high gloss finish and
beautiful graphics.
Like all hand crafted products, each board is unique. The differences
from one to the next are small. We think of the variations as character
and personality.
Similar to a new sports car or one of Hobie’s high-performance Apex
RAW 4R racing boards, the beauty of the Mirage Eclipse board will last
longer with proper care. To preserve the high gloss finish, avoid bumping into rocks, gravel, docks or other objects.
Hobie recommends that you launch the Mirage Eclipse in water that
reaches up to your knees – about sixteen inches deep. Not only will
this prevent damage to the beautiful board finish, it allows the MirageDrive® and rudder room to operate without striking the bottom. When
finished with your outing, step off your Mirage Eclipse in knee deep
water. Refrain from running the board into the beach while in use.
ACX boards feature strong, composite construction. Paint chips and
scratches are superficial, normal wear. They won’t impact performance.
To keep your Hobie Mirage Eclipse in top shape and get the most out of
your board, be sure to start by viewing the Quick Start video before using. To keep your new Eclipse looking its best, follow these routine care
recommendations.
• Rinse with fresh water after each use.
• Keep the board clean and dry for extended storage, preferably in an Eclipse protective board bag.
• When stored, keep the board out of direct sunlight or extreme heat or cold.
• We encourage owners to use the accessory beach cart for easier
transport on land and use rail, nose and tail protection tape to further
protect against scratches.
• Store or rack the board pad down.
• Board bags, beach carts, protective tape and rack pads are all avail
able through your Hobie Authorized Eclipse Dealer.
With care, your Mirage Eclipse will retain its beauty.
