Trent Steege


I have been fishing out of Hobie kayaks since 2014, compete at many local and National tournaments every year and run guided kayak fishing trips for Sunjammers. When I’m not preparing for a tournament I am fishing around Panama City, Fl both saltwater and freshwater. I have my YouTube channel SteegeFish and along with other social media outlets where I consistently upload videos of my fishing adventures as well as gear and Hobie Kayak reviews for my local dealer Sunjammers. I’m also skilled in repairing Hobie kayaks and work with my local dealer in keeping people on the water and educating them on everything new Hobie has to offer.

Robert Courtney Ashburn


I am a kayak fishing guide and part-time saltwater tournament angler. I provide knowledge to customers who visit our area about our amazing fishery and provide them with a day of fun, fishing and fellowship in Hobie Kayaks. When I am not guiding, I fish the Florida Redfish Series and other online saltwater tournaments. When I am not on the water I am spending time with my wife Christine and our two daughters, Mackenzie and Hadley.

Darrell Cornelius


Hello my name is Darrell Cornelius, It all started at a very young age when my father interduced me to the great outdoors, Since then I have been passionate about just about anything to do with outdoor activities. I first started fishing out of a kayak in 2017 When I went to a local kayak shop and purchased a 2018 hobie pa 14 180 drive in camo. Then took off in 2018 fishing local tournaments and then fishing national tournament and fishing the Hobie BOS open series. The water is where I belong and my Hobie gets the job done everytime.

Gregory Mouton


Hello, I am a kayak angler that has been in the industry for over 15 years. I have been on Hobie pro staff in the past. I am now medically retired due to combat related injuries and find kayak fishing as the best treatment for comat PTSD. I am a founder for the group Lost Coast Kayak Anglers and offer free safety clinics every year to help promote safety on the water. I also host events for fellow disabled combat veterans and first responders. I run demos with Pacific Outfitters and offfer classes to teach the basics of ocean kayak fishing.

Franco Natividad


Just a regular guy who loves being out on the water. It’s therapy for me, as the saying goes, “Many go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.” With that said I do tournament fish, mostly a saltwater angler. I’ve placed first at the extreme kayak fishing tournaments, sailfish smack down, as well as third place in the same event. I enjoy making content, I make quality fishing videos and take quality pics to try and show others a POV into my world whenever I’m out. Im fortunate to have found a new mission since being medically retired from the Army. Im an ambassador for BerleyPro and Louisiana Custom Kayaks, both popular and well known in the kayak community. Im looking forward to sharing more of my passion with the Hobie brand.
