At the other end of the spectrum of mariners is Hobie Cat founder, Hobart “Hobie” Alter, who passed away this past March and whose exploits are document in Hobie: Master of Water, Wind and Waves, by Paul Holmes.

Surfboards, catamarans and boats, RC model airplanes (the Hobie Hawk), and a whole lot more “toys”—as Hobie himself describes his amazing life’s work— will all be celebrated in the biography of the man who defined a lifestyle in surfing and sailing.
