Hobie Surf Shop & Depactus Present Talking Story with Mark Healey’ 

‘Mark Healey’s relentless pursuit to experience all that the ocean offers is perhaps only exceeded by his passion to protect and preserve it’ -Depactus. Known as one of the most prolific watermen on the planet, he not only excels at paddling into the biggest waves, he also spear fishes and free dives at a level amongst the most elite in the world. He is a watermen’s waterman. Well respected and universally revered amongst his unique class of hellmen peers, Mark Healey is like none other.

Join us on October 23rd at Hobie San Clemente for a night of story and as yet unseen footage from the life of this extraordinary gentleman. Healey will be in shop sharing his own story personally with us. Bringing along clips of not only surfing and diving, but his own unique view while tagging great white sharks. His affable and pleasant demeanor and well spoken easy storytelling ways are not to be missed. This event is family friendly, open to the public, and free of charge.


‘Anytime you step into the ocean, you’re in an environment that’s completely uncontrolled by humans, everyone needs to connect with that sort of wildness in some way, especially in a time when there is so much noise and distraction in our daily lives.’ -Mark Healey

Hobie Surf :: Hobie X Quiksilver Present ‘Talking Story with Mark Richards’ on October 27th, 2015 as Moderated by Bob McKnight!!!

Mark Richards

Hobie Surf Shop & Quiksilver Present ‘Talking Story with Mark Richards’ 

Come hear a moderated talk with Australian legend and world champion surfer, Mark Richards. Mark will be present at our Dana Point location on the 27th of October sharing epic video footage from the Quiksilver vault and telling stories from his past. Richards ‘wounded seagull’, knock-kneed, flawless flow on the waves brought him four world titles and legions of lifetime fans. He was, and is, a champion of the people. The dominate everyman. His Superman styled logos, ‘Door Busting’, and ‘Free Ride’-ing, are woven into the fabric of surfing history.

The talk will be moderated by none other than Quiksilver Co-Founder, Bob McKnight. McKnight is a legend in his own right as well. He was the guiding force behind the global surf brand’s rise to dominance, which remains – after decades of ups and downs – the largest surfwear company in the world. He drove the legendary Quiksilver VW bus that brought boardshorts directly to surf shops all around the Southern California coast back in the 70’s. McKnight is currently back as CEO of Quik.

Don’t miss out on what promises to be a once in a lifetime night.

Hobie Shop :: Hobie Surf Shop Proudly Announces Their Earning of the First Green Business Certification in Laguna Beach.


Hobie Surf Shop proudly announces their earning of the first green business certification in Laguna Beach.

To be certified as a Green Business by The California Green Business Program, you must demonstrate that you take action to conserve resources and prevent pollution in both your facility (fixtures, lighting and maintenance) and your operations (purchasing and other practices). With this in mind, we at Hobie Laguna Beach have fully altered our lighting to 100% LED, greened up our cleaning and paper products, planted drought resistant native landscaping, cut water usage with the assistance of The Ecology Center, and banned single use plastic drinking cups. These additions, along with practices we already had in place at all our locations, made the certification process easy.

This year, in California alone, the program has saved 822,677 metric tons of CO2 with a total savings of $3,083,277. That’s the equivalent of planting 43,583 acres of urban trees a year for ten years. We are exceedingly excited to further implement the eco-friendly changes in all of our coastal locations. Hobie Surf Shop owners, Mark Christy & Jake Schwaner, are actively committed to the process and happily leading the charge for shopwide changes. Plans are already in place for our new San Clemente location to come straight out of the gate as Certified Green. Our goal is for our stores to really just do what is right and be places other small local business can come to and see ways to exist and thrive while being conscious of our shared environmental resource uses.

The California Green Business Program leads the state and nation in working with small to medium sized businesses to grow a vibrant and healthy green economy. Led by a coalition of cities and counties, they contribute to more livable communities with healthier environments, while also conserving resources and saving money. We are honored to be listed among 2,800 other businesses going above for the Earth.

Since 1954, when Hobie Alter opened the very first surf shop in Southern California, ours stores have stood for quality & innovation. Your experience is our priority. To see all the changes first hand, please head in to our Laguna Beach Hobie Surf Shop located at 294 Forrest Avenue Laguna Beach, Ca 92651. We love seeing you!
