The surf community lost a great man this past weekend, Hobie Alter (1933-2014). Hobie was a craftsmen, go getter, & an innovator. From setting the standard for surfboard production to revolutionizing the catamaran industry, Hobie’s works have touched the lives of many individuals. Always humble & looking towards the future, Hobie never stopped creating. As a surfer, shaper, & avid waterman, I am thankful for all that Hobie has done for our sport. I am sure Hobie, Terry, & Dale are having a good ole time together now!
