Hobie Surf Shop and Quiksilver proudly present ‘A Talk with Tommy’.
Come hear first hand stories from Australian legend and world champion surfer, Tom Carroll. Tom will be present at our Dana Point location on 3/17/2015 sharing video and thoughts from his past accomplishments, like ‘the snap heard round the world’, what it takes to be a world champion, and what it is like reigniting his career by chasing big waves around the globe.
The talk will be moderated by none other then Quiksilver Co-Founder, Bob McKnight. McKnight is a legend in his own right as well. He was the guiding force behind the global surf brands rise to dominance, which remains – after decades of ups and downs – the largest surfwear company in the world. He was the driver of the legendary Quiksilver VW bus that drove boardshorts directly to surf shops up and down the coast back in the 70’s. McKnight retired as CEO of the company in late 2014.
Aside from ‘The Talk’, we will have some of Quiksilvers ‘Modern Original’ boardshorts from eras past on display, live music, live surfboard shaping with Hobie master shaper Gary Larson, barbecue , raffles, and giveaways. This event is free and the entire surfing community is invited to attend!
