The world is a water park, and Hobie makes the best rides.
It was in the late 1950’s that Hobie Alter blew up his parent’s garage in Laguna Beach while experimenting with new materials to make his surfboards. Surviving this (the blast and his parent’s reaction) he went on to build an impressively successful business, branching out into sailboats, kayaks, radio-controlled gliders, skateboards, sunglasses and apparel. Want a kayak that also functions as a sailboat? Or one you can paddle with your feet? How about taking a few friends out on your catamaran for a sunset sail? Whichever way you want to ride the water, Hobie has a boat for you. Welcome to the Hobie family.
