have a hobie life

hobie alter moto surfboard

We have learned that surfing and sailing Legend Hobie Alter has passed away in his home yesterday. A sad day for all of of who have indeed surfed or sailed on something with a Hobie Logo on it.  And really, who hasn’t?

Hobie was an innovative and dedicated pioneer in surfing, and  he did much the same in sailing, in both cats (Hobie 14,16) and monos (Hobie 33).  He’ll be missed by many, but the legend lives on every day at a beach, wave or marina near you, and we encourage you to share your condolences or stories in this thread.

Back in 2009, we had the privilege of doing the only long-format interview anyone had done with Hobie for a couple of decades; it’s a three-part, wide-ranging interview that will help you reminisce…from the 2009 “Coolest Cat” thread.
