When Liz was 9, her family spent a year sailing the Mexican coast. “That trip inspired my dream to sail around the world,” she says. After college, she turned her dream into reality, leaving Southern California in her 40-foot sailboat, Swell. Now, when not surfing perfect reef passes in the South Pacific, she’s working to raise environmental awareness through writing, film and photography.

 

SWELL: A Sailing Surfer’s Voyage of Awakening

Embarking on an adventure that most only fantasize about, Liz Clark, set forth from Santa Barbara, California, ten years ago as captain of her 40-foot sailboat, Swell, headed south toward the wonder and learning that lies beyond the unbroken horizon.

In true stories overflowing with wild waves and constant challenges, at the whim of the weather, relationships sweet and sour, nature’s marvels and colorful cultures, Liz captures her voyage in gripping detail in this memoir, sharing tales of sailing in high seas, of solitude and surprises, of finding connection to the Earth and commitment to living in harmony with it.

More than 10 years, 20,000 miles, countless adventures, and one cat later, she’s still out there.

“Journeying across the ocean is something most sailor’s just dream about. I hope to live that dream one day myself. Liz’s journey on Swell is as enjoyable as it is inspiring.” —Jimmy Buffett, Sailor and Singer/Songwriter

“Captain Liz Clark’s intrepid, joyful, courageous, beautifully illustrated, searingly personal, and occasionally harrowing memoir “Swell” is the perfect antidote to any malaise. Life is meant to be a great adventure, not a package tour. Clark’s story will inspire anyone who yearns to be at large in the world—and especially those who dream of a life aquatic.” —Susan Casey, author of Voices in the Ocean, The Wave, and The Devil’s Teeth

“Liz has excelled as a surfer, sailor, and explorer, but these descriptions do not in any way truly impart the spirit, courage and humility of her life. She is one of those rare people who has chosen to journey far from the comfort and security of the shore, to risk all and follow her heart’s calling.” —Wayne Lynch, Legendary Surfer

The Ocean Institute in Dana Point Harbor, where experience is the teacher.

From The Ocean Institute Newsletter ::

As well-known leaders in the outdoor industry for environmental advocacy and community enrichment, Patagonia’s waves of positive impact recently reached our Adopt-a-Class program with a $5,000 grant. The Patagonia ‘Environmental Grants Program’ funds organizations that identify and work on the root causes of environmental problems and approach those issues with a commitment to long-term change. This description parallels our goal for the Adopt-A-Class program, which enables underserved students from Title I schools across California to visit the Ocean Institute for hands-on education using ‘nature as the teacher’. The program is truly life-changing for these students, as many have never seen the ocean or been on a boat before. The experience not only provides essential learning opportunities that these children often don’t have access to, but also encourages a love for marine science that motivates them to become life-long learners and passionate advocates for the protection of our planet.

 

This year, as many of us reflect on the gifts we are thankful for—Ocean Institute recognizes our many donors and community partners who make our valuable educational programs possible. Patagonia’s support will provide over 250 underserved students with the gift of outdoor education and inspire future change-makers and defenders of our oceans. A special thanks to our wonderful friends at Hobie and other local environmentalists who were advocates for Ocean Institute during the application process. We are so grateful for this opportunity to expand our programs, and look forward to giving back through marine science, maritime history and environmental educational programs in the coming year.

Hobie Shop :: Surfing Heritage Capsule’s Come to Hobie Surf Shops!!

SURFING HERITAGE AND CULTURE CENTER & HOBIE SURF SHOP PARTNER UP:

Collaborative museum capsule collections to be displayed at two shop locations

20171128_104220

Orange County, CA, November 13, 2017— Hobie Surf Shops is excited to announce a partnership with the prestigious non-profit organization and museum, Surfing Heritage and Culture Center (SHACC). SHACC will be curating historical mini capsule collections, selected from its world-renowned assortment of memorabilia, to be showcased at Hobie locations. As well, Hobie will design and sell special edition SHACC apparel, accessories and “cool stuff” under license, with a portion of the profits benefitting SHACCs mission to share surfings history and culture with the world.

A non-profit organization, SHACC has over 700 surfboards, a shaping shack filled with surf legend Dale Velzy’s tools, templates and surfboards, and a rotating exhibit space that features a new display three to four times a year. Surfing Heritage might be best known for its photo archive, home to over 100 separate collections totaling nearly 300,000 historic images. The museum also produces special events such as guest lectures, slide shows, art and historical exhibits, surf film screenings, and concerts as well as educational outreach programs linking the sport of surfing to the community.

“We are more than stoked with this innovative partnership” says Glenn Brumage, SHACC’s Executive Director. “SHACC founder Dick Metz was Hobie Alters business partner and opened the first Hobie retail store in Honolulu HI, making the SHACC annexes, as an integral part of the Hobie retail experience, very natural”.

“In our desire to increase awareness in surfing’s rich history, as well as pay homage to Dick Metz and what he created in Hobie Surf Shops, it made perfect sense for us to create these annexes. It’s our job, as beach/surf retailers, to be a voice of surf history and culture” stated Jake Schwaner of Hobie Surf Shops. “Both Mark Christy and myself are honored to extend the SHACC’s reach by introducing more of the California community to their remarkably extensive collection”.

The first annex at Hobie Corona Del Mar is now open with the Dana Point annex opening the first part of December. The first exhibits follow the Surf to Skate story that SHACC is currently on display in the museum gallery.
