For 60 years, Hobie Surf Shops have been a small business. Sure, we may have a pretty big global name, but since Hobie Alter shaped his first surfboards in the garage of his parents Laguna Beach home in 1950, our roots have been firmly planted here in Coastal Orange County. We proudly employ 90 local residents split amongst our five surf shops and our warehouse. Our owners, Jake Schwaner and Mark Christy, are longtime local residents too! When you shop small with us, you actively help grow our shared economy!

This year, for Shop Small Saturday, we wanted to help you shop even closer to home, by highlighting small local brands that we have available in our shops and online. Some may, like us, have pretty solid name recognition, like Catch Surf and Stance. Some, you may have never known that they are hand made right here locally, like Galileo Jewelry and Arenal Surfboards. Some of our small local businesses are already working together, like SanO Boardriding working with Martin Shapes to create one of a kind surfboards along with their Tees. Some are striving to create better surf specific wear in an incredibly tough marketplace, like 81 Wetsuits and Seea. And, a few small brands, we just flat out love, like Katin, Ezekiel, Salty Crew, ROARK, and Kai.

Scan the list below and see all our favorites! Then come in to any of our locations on Shop Small Saturday on November 29th for hot coco, treats, and, as always, gift wrapping! We love seeing you. Remember, when you shop small, you support us all!!

Hobie Shop :: A Look Inside Hobie Surf Shop in San Clemente

Hobie Surf Shop on the Camino Real Corner in San Clemente

Hobie Surf Shop on the Camino Real Corner in San Clemente

We told you a few weeks ago that we were giving our San Clemente shops new identities. Making a mens specific surf shop up on the corner of Camino Real and Del Mar (100 South El Camino Real – San Clemente) and creating, a first of it’s kind, women’s surf boutique on the block of Del Mar (151 Avenida Del Mar – San Clemente). We couldn’t be more stoked about the results!

Our men’s shop is filled with all the softgood brands you have come to expect from us… like, ROARK, Patagonia, RVCA, Brixton, Hobie by Hurley, Volcom, Katin, Quiksilver, Billabong, Hurley, ect. Plus, Adrienne, our men’s buyer, is busy looking for more unique brands that you can’t find anywhere else. As far as our hard goods/ surfboards go, Trevor, our hard good guru, is knocking it out! Over 40 surfboards by Hobie, DXTR, Donald Brink, Tyler Warren, Gary Larson, and Josh Martin are loaded in, with more shapes on the way. Custom orders have been being taken daily, and we are blown away by the quality of work that is coming in and out the door.  Andy Cowell and Kris Carlow have been doing an insane job of working with the Hobie Surfboard builders to bring you the best rides from the past and present, and beyond future designs too. Boards change almost daily, so make sure you stop in often.

Aside from the boards and clothes, the shop has a huge growing wetsuit section, boogies and beaters, waterhawks and handplanes, watches and wallets, sandals and sneakers, and even a section of beach necessities like Hobie towels, chairs, and the ultra beloved, bocce. We are still, and always will be, a beach living and loving surf shop for all generations. All things sand and water.

Below Kris gives you a video tour, and we added in some photos too to give you an idea of what we are up to. In the next two weeks, we will give you a tour of the Surf Boutique!

We kept some of the boards a secret… but Kris shows you everything else in our newly redesigned Men’s Surf Space on the corner of Camino Real and Del Mar streets in San Clemente, California.

Come on by and say hi, we love seeing you! Don’t forget to ask about custom order boards too!
