Hobie Shop :: Holiday Events at Our Shops!! So Many Reasons to Come On By!!

Come On Down to Ho Ho Hobie!!

Come On Down to Ho Ho Hobie!!


Hobie Surf Shops have roots that tie directly to the Orange County beach community. It’s more than just a place where our shops are located. For us, it is where our lineage is the deepest. Laguna is home to the house where our founding Father, Hobie Alter, crafted his first surfboards in a front yard on PCH. Dana Point is where our very first shop was born 60 years ago. Orange County and it’s residents are in the soul of everything we do.

Three years ago, we decided to up our commitment to our local communities by going all out for the shop town’s holiday festivals!! Last weekend you guys blew the doors off our San Clemente shops for Puttin’ On the Glitz! Both our stores were packed with treats, live music and a steady stream of stoked locals! From Friday – Sunday you will get a chance to hit up Laguna Beach, Dana Point, and Corona Del Mar for wintery good times! Here is a run down on what is happening, where and when. Can’t wait to see you all!!


Laguna Beach Hobie ::  Friday December 5th from 6pm-9pm. Hospitality Night!! 

At Hospitality Night, a Laguna tradition where Forest Ave is shut down for wintery type activites, including the arrival of Santa! We turn our shop into a HUGE  fundraiser benefiting all the children who call the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach home! Ho Ho How awesome is that??? We host everything on the floor of our shop from a Face Painting area, Photo Booth, and the spinning Wheel ‘O Prizes!! And, of course, a massive in store concert!  All these events last year together raised a staggering $2000!!!! We are looking to blow that number out this year!! The wheel is going to be BONKERS with prizes from Catch Surf, O’Neill, Vissla, PJ Salvage, ect…! So come ready to spin, snack, and leave with a tiger painted on your face, because this night is ALL for some very fantastic kids. The band Moonshine is playing sets all night starting at 6pm. We will have treats and drinks, too. Bring the family!!


Dana Point Hobie :: Saturday December 6th from 10am-5pm. Winterfest!! 

Three words : GIANT Snow Pile!! Yes, it’s that time of year when the city of Dana Point shuts down the Hennessey’s parking lot and turns it into a Santa Party Fest! They create a massive mound of snow for the kids to play in, bring in a petting zoo, and the man in the big red suit, SANTA is here!!! In our shop we will be hosting a complimentary pancake breakfast with a nice side of oj from 10am-11:30am (or, for as long as the batter lasts). The rest of the day we will have popcorn and treats! Stop in and say ‘Hi!’ and we will give you a Hobie sticker. Bring the kids!!!


Corona Del Mar Hobie :: Sunday December 7th from 11am-4pm. Christmas Walk!! 

Each year “The Walk” brings together thousands of fun-loving people into the Village of Corona del Mar for live entertainment, food, prizes and games in true holiday spirit! This event goes OFF! 12 bands up and down PCH, bungee jumping, bounce houses, a petting zoo, BBQ cooked up by The Newport Beach Fire Department, photos with Santa… not to mention, our much beloved, massive beer and wine garden in the parking lot of Bandera! In our store, we will have live music from very talented young local musicians, gifts with all purchases from your FAVORITE brands (hint hint… Hurley, Vissla, Patagonia!), lots of treats, and our complimentary gift wrapping with a smile! DO NOT MISS this one!!
