The Compass is a feature-rich platform that delivers the performance Hobie customers expect without compromise.”

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
    and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83
