About Smog of the Sea ::

The Smog of the Sea chronicles a 1-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea.

Marine scientist Marcus Eriksen invited onboard an unusual crew to help him study the sea: renowned surfers Keith & Dan Malloy, musician Jack Johnson, spearfisher woman Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham become citizen scientists on a mission to assess the fate of plastics in the world’s oceans. After years of hearing about the famous “garbage patches” in the ocean’s gyres, the crew is stunned to learn that the patches are a myth: the waters stretching to the horizon are clear blue, with no islands of trash in sight. But as the crew sieves the water and sorts through their haul, a more disturbing reality sets in: a fog of microplastics permeates the world’s oceans, trillions of nearly invisible plastic shards making their way up the marine food chain. You can clean up a garbage patch, but how do you stop a fog?


Using nostalgic super-8 footage, sparkling underwater cinematography, an original score by Jack Johnson and shipmate Simon Beins, and live action footage of the crew’s research, The Smog of the Sea provides a new perspective on the once pristine oceans, and makes an artful call to action for rethinking the scourge of the sea — single use plastic. Directed by Peabody Award-winning and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Ian Cheney (King Corn, The City Dark, The Search for General Tso).

Hobie Shop :: Taco Tuesday with Kai Lenny & Derek Dunfee // Slides, Q&A, and Zine Release with Both Stars in Shop!!






Derek Dunfee didn’t get his start as a photographer. A lifelong surfer raised on the reefs of La Jolla, California, Dunfee soon begin traveling the world, going on to become one of the most respected big wave surfers on the planet. Fast forward to present day, and he’s reached a comfort level in heavy conditions that allow him to take his camera into scenarios most could never imagine.

Having been compared to a climber ascending Mt. Everest with an ice axe in one hand and a camera in the other, Dunfee’s images take you right into the heart of some of the ocean’s most powerful moments. It’s this unique perspective that makes his imagery so remarkable, and ultimately timeless. 



DEKKA, Derek’s big wave zine, has developed a cult following for its unfiltered depiction of a life dedicated to chasing and documenting massive surf. 

This past year, Derek chose to follow young waterman and renowned big wave charger, Kai Lenny around the world. Witnessing Kai’s superhuman ability in waves of consequence was a revelation, and inspired Derek to devote the next issue of DEKKA entirely to Kai’s inspired winter season. The result is DEKKA KAI. 

To celebrate the release of the zine, Dunfee will hold a photo exhibition showcasing imagery from a year spent with Kai around the globe.


Run Of Show 

7:00pm – 8:00pm :: Show up to Hobie Dana Point. Find a seat, high-five your friends and help yourself to tacos and drinks. Grab a limited edition copy of the Zine and a Hurley X DEKKA KAI tee shirt.
