sad news, but good article. I never knew there was so much history behind the brand name on my favorite kayaks.
Thanks for posting.

a sad loss and my condolences to the family. The man may be gone but the legend will live on and on. I can remember the first Hobie Cats hitting Fort Lauderdale beach.
The Hobie line has only grown and improved since then.

A Thrill Ride is being dragged around in your kayak for 40 minutes by an extremely large fish.

LOL! That "history" comes from every non-compete agreement he ever signed when he sold each business. Sold the surfboard business and couldn't build boards anymore, so went to catamarans... then to kayaks ... then to...
