RIP Hobie Alter 10/31/33-3/29/14
"With the passing of Hobie Alter a legend is gone, and with it, the man who probably contributed more to the sport of surfing than anyone in history!
His generation is rapidly disappearing. I had the honor of spending time with Hobie and even working with him at one time. I came to regard Hobie as a good friend and also as someone who I considered as one of the true gentlemen of the sport of surfing. I am sure he is on another wave somewhere trying to figure out another way that he could advance the
sport he loved and contributed so much to. His legacy will never be forgotten!" -Don Hansen
