The Vintage Surfboard Collector Club ‘presents’ The First Annual Hobie Vintage Surfboard Festival at La Plaza Park
Sunday February 25th 8am-3pm
Come one come all to an edition of The Vintage Surfboard Collectors Club (VSCC) Swap at La Plaza Park in Dana Point, in between Hennessy’s and Hobie Surf Shop!
View, buy, sell or trade surfboards with member collectors from up and down the coast. Surfboards & memorabilia, like skateboards, contest tees, books, posters, etc, from the dawn of surfing through the 1980’s will be represented. Admission is FREE to swap or buy. You must be a member of VSCC to sell (more info at www.vintagesurfboardcollectorclub.com).
Along with all flavors of surf & skate history represented, there will also be special “Best of Show Hobie Surfboard” & “Best of Show Hobie Memorabilia” awards given. That means, bring your best ever vintage Hobie surfboard or item to the swap and enter it to win major prizes!! You do not have to be a VSCC member to enter the Best in Show categories. Several legendary Hobie Surfers will serve as show judges. We can’t wait to see what you pull out of your rafters, garages and closets!
Morning coffee bar with locals Crank and Grind will start brewing at 8am, and they will serve up tasty Sambazon bowls throughout the day. Fellow collectors club Surfboards & Coffee will collaborate with VSCC for the first time ever at this meet! Music from The West Coast Cookers starts at 10am, kicking your eyes even more open than a Crank & Grind espresso and playing sets all afternoon. Gary Larson, master shaper at Hobie Surfboards, will be live shaping a classic Hobie model at high noon. Representatives from community organizations such as, The Surfing Heritage & Culture Center, Surfers Healing, Surfrider, and The Ocean Institute will have information tents set up, spreading the word on who they are and how to get more engaged with what they do.
In short, HUNDREDS of bitchen boards strewn about the grass, coffee, bowls, live music, hand shaping, Best in Show, community organizations, and local surf legends, all with a Hobie flavor added in. What’s not to like?? This event is rain or shine, all ages welcome and open to the public. Don’t miss out!! See you Sunday February 25th!!
