Hobie Shop :: Our Annual Community Surf Swap and Sale is HERE!!

swap_11x17_2017

 

It’s Back!! Our annual Surf Swap & Sale at our Dana Point Hobie Surf Shop (only, in Dana Point!!) is set to go off this Memorial Day Weekend! We LOVE this sale!! It’s our chance to not only help you clean out those used surfboards in your garage, making room for a whole new rack of boards… but it’s our chance to buy those used boards off of you and have a brand new, though slightly pre-loved, quiver of our own!

You set the price for your boards, with a little help from us, and when it sells, 10% of the selling price will be donated to The Ocean Institute. Be wise in your selection of boards to bring down, surfboards 7’6″ and over sell the fastest and usually for the best price. SUP’s also do well at the swap, but as far as shortboards go, it’s hit and miss on how they fare. We also have had a strong turnout of folks looking for classics and vintage boards, too! Remember, cleaned up, unwaxed boards look the best in the racks. You want your girl to stand out amongst the sea of other boards, so shine her up nice and pretty!

Tell your friends, and especially tell that board hoarder you know, to bring their boards on down to our Dana Point Shop (again the sale is only at the Dana Point Shop) bright and early on May the 26th. We will start taking in boards as early as 8:30am. When you fill out your forms, make sure to give us an easy phone number to reach you at, just in case we have an offer on the table that you want to hear. We have seen people come up cash in hand, looking to get a bit off the marked price only to leave when we can’t get in contact with the seller. Price your boards fair and be willing to STOKE someone out on a new ride! It’s crazy fun to watch people find the new log of their dreams at a price they can afford!

Stop in through out the weekend and see how your boards are selling, and make sure you shop the SALE! We go BaNaNaS marking items down!! Our outside parking lot will be full of great deals, and we’ll have special markdowns inside too! Seriously, you will Not be disappointed with this sale and swap! Make sure you are ready with phone in hand on Sunday May 28th around 4ish, just in case we didn’t sell your boards. You will have to pick them up again that night by 5pm. But, trust us, we do our best to sell them all!!

Ok, if you have any other questions, call our Dana Point Shop at 949-496-2366, otherwise, We’ll See You at The Swap!!!

HOBIE_PATAGONIA-fishpeople_11x17

To some, the ocean is a fearsome and dangerous place. But to others, it’s a limitless world of fun, freedom and opportunity where life can be lived to the full. A documentary presented by Patagonia and directed by Keith Malloy, Fishpeople tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea. From surfers and spearfishers to a long-distance swimmer, a former coal miner and a group of at-risk kids on the streets of San Francisco, it’s a film about the transformative effects of time spent in the ocean—and leaving behind our limitations to find deeper meaning in the saltwater wilderness that lies just beyond the shore.

A very wise man said “The best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun.” That wise man is Phil Edwards. Legendary surfer, sailor, shaper, boat builder/designer, waterman, and all around surfing style icon. We are proud to be re-establishing our ties to this master craftsman after 17 years. Hobie Surfboards will be debuting two all new Phil Edwards surfboards, The Phil Edwards Model and The Phil Glide, at a “Surfboard Release Party” at Hobie Surf Shop in Dana Point on Friday, April 7th with the great Mr. Edwards in attendance.

The Hobie Phil Edwards Model is being recreated to the tee under the direction and discerning eyes of Phil Edwards himself. This classic is one of the smoothest rides around, great in small to overhead surf. The Phil Glide is collaboration between Phil Edwards, Colin McPhillips and Mark Johnson. The shape is based on a solid mahogany board that Phil shaped decades ago. These surfboards will be immediately available for purchase and custom ordering.

There will be new Hobie Surfboard Models from and appearances by Mickey Munoz, Colin McPhillips, Bucky Barry, and Phil Rajzman. Master Hobie shaper, Gary Larson, will be hand shaping a new Phil Edwards Model during the night. Music from Matt Akiona, a pop up Hobie History photo wall, and complimentary snacks and drinks starting at 6pm and going until 8pm. All ages welcome, free of charge and open to the public.
