I surfed on my first Hobie surf board in 1966 - he made surf boards before he started making sailboats.

Also had a H16 for a few years, great fun.

RIP Mr Alter

One character gone from that era. I wonder when his neighbor on Orcas Island in the san juans, one Mr Warren Miller will be gone too! They do not always make them like they used to!

I have been sailing Hobie Holder 14 for 16 years now. One of the best dinghies I ever sailed.
Hobie Alter is now sailing the great fleet in the Sky. Thank you, dude.
