Hobie Foote Segue

Lots of activity at the shop lately…while Bill Foote was over from Maui visiting, Hobie shaper, Mark Johnson stopped by to dropoff more boards and to show us a new prototype surf model…

It was kewl to see them talking board design and checking each other’s boards out…not very often do you see two shapers on the same page…

Mark talking race board design with our paddleracing team member Rich Schroeder…

Rich competed yesterday at the 9 mile 2009 Hennessey’s US Paddleboard Championships
in Redondo Beach, California…haven’t seen race results yet, but it sounds like Hobie team riders swept many of the top spots…

Mark shared a couple of pics of his new 14′ carbon X-14 SUP race board that has been under wraps…they debuted at the US Championships yesterday…

Hobie’s SUP program is not just focused on waves or racing…even though it’s hard not to notice the performance of their products in the hands of riders like Chuck Patterson, three-time world longboard champ Colin Mcphillips, brothers T.J. and Bryce Saeman…etc…

The Hobie ATR (All Terrain Ride) SUP line has also been very successful…
The ATR line is the best of both worlds…a great stable paddling platform with great surfing characteristics.

The 10’6″ x 28.75″ ATR is a fav amongst our wahine clients…it’s perfect fit for smaller paddlers who want a board that paddles with ease and stability.

Here’s Allison and Serina driving away with their new Hobies on their cars heading to the beach to baptize them…Allison picked out the mango 10’6″…and her friend Serina opted for the aqua…

A frequent sight at our shop…stoked clients driving away with new SUP’s heading to the beach…
