Join us for a screening of “Paige”, a new film about big-wave champion Paige Alms.

Though she grew up just a few miles from Peʻahi, one of the best big waves on the planet, it’s Paige’s extraordinary passion, dedication and work ethic that has helped her break down barriers and set a new standard for women’s big wave surfing. The film looks at what drives her, what inspires her, and how she turns fear into fuel when the surf gets HUGE.

About Paige ::  A thrill seeker who finds joy in both extra-large, extra-clean barrels or one-foot mushburgers, Paige feels most at home in the ocean, be it on a hydrofoil, fish, shortboard, “log” or simply bodysurfing. As a two-time , she says her biggest accomplishment is serving as a role model for the next generation, and she always tries to share what her mom taught her at an early age: “Dream big!”

Alms is also among the group of female big wave surfers who fought to make equal pay a reality at the WSL’s Maverick’s Challenge. She’s committed to pushing women’s big wave surfing to new heights. With two Pe’ahi Challenge wins and as a 2X WSL Big Wave World Champion, she’s achieving her goals and bringing us all along for the ride!

Off the water, the big-wave surfer enjoys traveling, organic gardening, cooking and spending time with friends, family and her dog Mocha.

Echo Beach is both a place and a feeling. An era in the 80’s where flashy wetsuits, colorful surfboards, and mammoth sized logos became the standard. Located in Orange County, CA between 52nd and 56th street Newport Beach, Echo Beach is a sliver of land that helped innovate the iconic times of the 80’s. This film takes you back to the Newport Beach crew of surfers, who dominated the magazines. All at once, surfing good and more importantly, looking good on a one foot wave in your own backyard in the height of summer became almost more important than going huge in Hawaii in the winter. No single place defined this era quite like ‘Echo Beach’, where Surfing magazines and photographers all came to capture both the vibe in the water and on the beach that helped shaped one of the most iconic periods of surfing. 

Doors Open 6pm – 9pm. Live Music from Will Heard. Free Tacos & Drinks!!

Hobie Shop :: Drew Brophy LIVE Painting Demo & Book Signing at Hobie Laguna Beach 12/15/18

DREWBROPHY-EVENTPOSTER1-4

 

Join us for a Live Surfboard painting and book signing with Drew Brophy on Saturday, December 15th 1-4 p.m. at Hobie Laguna Beach.

 

Drew will be painting a surfboard as he shares stories out of his book on painting surfboards, chasing waves and being a surf artist.  This event is great for any artist or a fan of surfing history.

Drew’s new book, PAINTING SURFBOARDS AND CHASING WAVES, will be available.  The book is 128 pages full of colorful art and story that captures Drew’s thirty years as a surf artist. Included are surfboard paintings, sketches and paintings created for bands, collectors and action sports products such as wakeboards, skateboards and bodyboards.

A Little From Drew ::

In 1996 I was enjoying my third year living and painting surfboards on the North Shore in Hawaii, until one day when I had a surfing accident at Pipeline. Several injuries and a cracked eye socket kept me from working for awhile so I lost my job. That summer, I got an opportunity to go to California and work painting surfboards at SurfGlas in San Juan Capistrano.  I was really excited because at the time it was probably the busiest surfboard factory in the world.

The factory made Hobie, Stewart and Harbour surfboards. I was stoked to be surrounded by expert craftsman that worked there, shapers like Phil Edwards, Terry Martin, Bill Stewart, Rich Harbour, and Ron House. There were also some of the best laminators and painters there, guys like Mike Muir and Tom Sutherland and many others.  I was taking over the job of surfboard painter Mark Johnson, who was moving on to be a shaper. I had the honor of learning from all these great craftsmen. I painted signature boards by Micky Munoz and custom boards for longboard world champ Colin McPhillips.

So many great memories were made from this time period in my career. One of the best was having Phil’s shaping bay next to my paint stall. Phil and Terry Martin liked to come in early when it was quiet. Phil would spend hours fine tuning beautiful custom longboards with fancy wood nose and tail blocks. He would listen to soft music as he putted around the blank. Then I would come in and start blasting speed metal to get my mojo running. It drove Phil crazy, he would come around the corner looking at me like I was nuts, motioning me to turn down the volume.  It was like two polar opposites colliding, the old school and new school of surfing. I would be in my paint stall spraying flames and making a giant mess.

Eventually I moved on from painting surfboards full time to creating art for other things. I feel fortunate to have had these experiences with some of the greatest craftsmen in surf.

Now, all these years later, I’ve written a book about my thirty year path as a surf artist. I’m stoked to say that Hobie played a part in my story.

On December 15th, I’ll be celebrating some of these memories by doing a live surfboard painting and book signing at Hobie Surf Shop from 1-4 in Laguna Beach, CA.  My book, PAINTING SURFBOARDS AND CHASING WAVES, will available and I’ll be there, painting a surfboard and telling some of these stories. I hope you’ll join me.

Life is good, Drew

 

All ages welcome, Open to the public, drinks & treats, Drew will be signing copies of his book and doing a Q&A! Don’t miss out!! See you here!!

 

 

Hobie Shop :: Patagonia Film, “NEVER TOWN”, presented by Dave Rastovitch, Wayne Lynch, and Dan Ross at Hobie Dana Point Thursday, October 11th.

Part surf film, part conservation film, Never Town takes a journey along some wild coastlines and talks with the people fighting to keep them wild. Filmed along the Southern Ocean coasts of Australia, it’s an exploration of what these places mean to surfers… and what surfers are willing to do to save them. As surfing elder Wayne Lynch says, “We mythologised these places. We lose them and we lose ourselves.”

Never Town spans Australia’s vibrant southern fringe from the dusty edge of South Australia to the deep forests of Victoria and Tasmania. It features the surfing of Dave Rastovich, Dan Ross, Belinda Baggs and Heath Joske, set alongside conversations with coastal activists who are standing up against deepwater oil drilling and industrial fish farms.

Midnight Oil, Yirrnga Yunupingu, Ziggy Alberts and Bad Dreems provide a distinctly Australian soundtrack. With coastlines around the world under pressure like never before from growing populations, rampant development and exploitation from resource companies, Never Town is a rallying call for surfers and local communities to stand together to protect the wild spaces around them.
