Traditional paddleboarding at Hobie has roots that wander all the way to our beginnings in California and Hawaii. Human powered, requiring only the board, and your own drive – paddleboarding provides you the ability to stay close to the water’s surface, while simply exploring the kelp beds, or turning it into a cross-training workout that few sports can compare to. Rediscovering our roots and supporting our philosophy of “All Things Water”, we are stocking hand shaped paddleboards crafted by Hobie shapers Gary Larson, Josh Martin and Mark Johnson. All are known for their progressive innovation in design, they will build each board right here in our Dana Point, CA backyard. Stop in our Hobie Dana Point store today and get immersed in this timeless endeavor. We love seeing you, and we would love to make your next board.
