Our book launch on December 7 was a huge hit with several hundred people turning out to celebrate with Hobie himself and author Paul Holmes, who was busy signing books from 4:30 until the last people left the building at after 9:00 p.m.
Among those attending was a galaxy of surf legends and industry moguls including Phil Edwards, Mickey Muñoz, LJ Richards, Linda Benson, Mike Hynson, Don Hansen and many, many more. The evening had the aura of a reunion party and there was a warm vibe all the while as Hobie was inundated with well-wishers, old friends, past business partners and associates, etc., etc., etc.
We could not be more pleased with the crowd and the wildly enthusiastic reception to the book. And while we always try to avoid clichés like the plague, we are happy to report that the book is selling like hot-cakes!
