Happy Father’s Day to All Our Hobie Dads…. We Love You!!! xoxoxox
Every year at this time, you can hear the sounds of dads grumbling across the Earth, “Don’t Get Me Anything For Father’s Day, I Don’t Need Anything….” Yeah, Yeah, Yeah. We heard ya, but we aren’t going to listen! We are going to get you something, you deserve it for being the awesome dads you are. Especially if we are talking about my own long suffering dad. The poor man has a full head of white hair because of me and my youthful shenanigans!! You can bet, I’m going to get him something great from Hobie this year!!
And, since my dad, like yours, is insistent that I not get him anything, he hasn’t even given me a hint as to what he would like. So, yesterday I went into one of our five shops, I talked to the warehouse guys, and I looked all over our online www.hobiesurfshop.com site and picked what I think might be the best picks for your Father’s Day 2013. Enjoy!!
No question. Hands down. The PERFECT gift for any dad who surfs is a brand new custom made surfboard! Swing into Hobie Dana Point and talk to shaping master, Gary Larson, and hook your dad up with the new whip of his dreams.
No Shoes, No Service…. Olukai’s, Vans, or Nike’s can cover dads toes when sandals won’t cut it.
Remember that green steel bottle your grandpa used to bring fishing while he was wearing a nice pair of stealthy frames? We got them! Stanley Classic Flasks and LEGENDARY classic personal thermos. The thermos keeps drinks hot or cold for 15 hours. Hobie polarized fish finding sunglasses, or authentic Ray-Ban Avaitors will please even the saltiest of sea dogs.
Did all the trouble you got into in your youth cause your dads hair to fall off?? Then style him out in a new hat! Brixton are our favorites.

Help your dad relive his favorite wave. Frame a photo of him, wrap it up and sit down for a cup of coffee (in a Hobie mug, of course!) and have him tell you all about his best waves. Shop Hobie mugs and water bottles online at http://www.hobiesurfshop.com by clicking this photo, shop unique frames in all five Hobie Surf Shops.
If your dad is realllly old school, he is probably already riding a Paipo board, but in case he hasn’t replaced it in a few decades, it is time for a new one. DXTR Paipo board at Hobie Surf Shop in dana Point.
Did your pop shred paper thin shortboards in the 90’s?? Does he still charge Lowers daily? Get him anything made by …Lost, he’ll be sure to block for you next time you paddle out. Shop …Lost in stores or online now at http://www.hobiesurfshop.com by clicking the photo.
If your dad simply has everything, we know he probably doesn’t have these, yet! Mark Cunningham signature fins from DaFin.
Happy Father’s Day!!! Hope it is an amazing one!!! Dad, if you are reading this… Sorry about all the white hair!!
