carroll_event_socialmedia_031715-3

Hobie Surf Shop and Quiksilver proudly present ‘A Talk with Tommy’. 

Come hear first hand stories from Australian legend and world champion surfer, Tom Carroll. Tom will be present at our Dana Point location on 3/17/2015 sharing video and thoughts from his past accomplishments, like ‘the snap heard round the world’, what it takes to be a world champion, and what it is like reigniting his career by chasing big waves around the globe.

The talk will be moderated by none other then Quiksilver Co-Founder, Bob McKnight. McKnight is a legend in his own right as well. He was the guiding force behind the global surf brands rise to dominance, which remains – after decades of ups and downs – the largest surfwear company in the world. He was the driver of the legendary Quiksilver VW bus that drove boardshorts directly to surf shops up and down the coast back in the 70’s. McKnight retired as CEO of the company in late 2014.

Aside from ‘The Talk’, we will have some of Quiksilvers ‘Modern Original’ boardshorts from eras past on display, live music, live surfboard shaping with Hobie master shaper Gary Larson, barbecue , raffles, and giveaways. This event is free and the entire surfing community is invited to attend!

Hobie Shop :: Shop Small Saturday with Us!!!!

Come for the deals, stay for the hot coco! :)

 

 

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 Surf :: Monday Motivation : The Hot Curl Session

The Hot Curl Session; You don’t surf the board, you just enjoy the ride!! 

Inspired by Jeff Quam’s soulful surfing style, 6 of us from Hobie Surf Shop asked to meet him at Doheny to try his mythical finless ‘Hot Curl’ surfboards. The boards are a trip!! Hand Crafted with loving attention by Josh Martin, they can only be ridden by trying not to ride them at all. There was a LOT of falling and a LOT of laughing as we all gave them our best go…. again, the boards worked the best when you stopped trying to ride them, and instead, let the board take you where it wanted to go. Thank you to Terry Martin, Josh Martin, Jeff Quam, Andy Cowell, and the lovely waters of Doheny for making this a session to remember. Enjoy!!
