Sail On…

 

Our good friends from Hobie Cat put together this hilarious clip of what went down when The Hobie Cat World Dealer network took on the Wave House in Mission Beach. Before watching, remember these people are some of the best sailors, fishermen, divers, surfers, and all around watermen in the world. We dare you to watch it and not laugh…. There is nothing more delightful  then watching a good wipe out! Enjoy!!!

Motivation Monday :: Hobie Surf : Gary Larson Shapes a Quad Fish

“If I see a board that I shaped and it is sunburnt yellow, dinged up and ridden into the ground… it makes me happy. I don’t shape things to sit, they are supposed to be in the water, it is why shapers do what they do.” Gary Larson.

How do you start a board for a yet unnamed rider? “I start by looking at the destination… if it is an Uncle Buck headed for Dana Point, I start thinking it is going to be surfed at SanO. Then I think of the wave and how the average surfer in the water would ride it… when I started surfing, I just wanted to surf and get waves… when I make a stock board, I don’t think of surfers like Bucky Barry or Tyler Warren… I think about the average guy or girl in the water and make it for them.” When you think back to that first off the rack board that you loved, it was in fact designed just for you. The stock shapers already saw you riding the wave, they already knew what break you were going to surf at… they knew it was for you before you ever walked into the shop.

Hobie Surf :: Monday Motivation : The Hot Curl Session

*

*

The Hot Curl Session; You don’t surf the board, you just enjoy the ride!! 

Inspired by Jeff Quam’s soulful surfing style, 6 of us from Hobie Surf Shop asked to meet him at Doheny to try his mythical finless ‘Hot Curl’ surfboards. The boards are a trip!! Hand Crafted with loving attention by Josh Martin, they can only be ridden by trying not to ride them at all. There was a LOT of falling and a LOT of laughing as we all gave them our best go…. again, the boards worked the best when you stopped trying to ride them, and instead, let the board take you where it wanted to go. Thank you to Terry Martin, Josh Martin, Jeff Quam, Andy Cowell, and the lovely waters of Doheny for making this a session to remember. Enjoy!!
