Snow Sports – Downhill Skiing Experts

Excellence in skiing is comprised of three equal parts;

  • One part gear — you need the right stuff, get it here
  • One part technique — see your local professional ski instructor for this
  • One part custom fitting — this is what we do best

You will improve quickly by having your snow gear and boots custom fit.

It means tuning a ski or board so that it is easy to turn and control. It means getting better, faster. Or—getting faster—easier.

Hobie Kayaks – One Of The Oldest, Most Experienced Dealers

In the fall of 1997, Hi Tempo was one of a couple of dozen Hobie dealers to introduce the Hobie Mirage Pedaling Kayak. Hobie kayaks have changed the entire kayak industry.

In 1998 we exhibited one of the very first Mirage Kayaks in the country at the Minneapolis Boat Show. Most of the people who saw that first boat were curious but skeptical. Today, Hobie is one of the most popular kayaks in the industry and we have sold thousands of these kayaks to cabin owners, fishing enthusiasts, fitness enthusiasts and photographers all over the upper Midwest.

Hi Tempo is one of the largest Hobie dealers in the country and we stock the entire line of Hobie Mirage kayaks. We hold on-the-water demo’s every Wednesday night (weather permitting) and can ship kayaks to anywhere in the continental United States. Stop by and check out the most innovative new design in kayaking since the invention of the paddle.


Sailboats – Authorized Hobie Catamaran Dealers

Hi Tempo sells the boats people learn to sail on. We offer the complete line of Hobie sailboats that are perfect for kids, first-timers, rip-roaring wind screamers and high school, collegiate and Olympic racers.

Whether you’re looking for a new or used sailboat for the cabin, or a boat to campaign at races, the one thing consistent about every boat we sell is the time we take to make sure you understand how to rig it and properly sail it—even if you’ve never sailed before.
