This world-class bronze statue commemorating a life-sized Hobie Alter sailing his Hobie 14 catamaran in the waves of Dana Point. The base will commemorate all of Hobie’s historical contributions to the world’s surfing and sailing culture and industries. A gofundme.com page just went up today for the Hobie Memorial. You can support our cause by going to the following link to donate.
The City of Dana Point and Hobie Memorial Foundation (HMF), after a successful vote of the city council, have entered into an agreement whereby the city will grant up to $200,000, dollar for dollar, to match funds contributed to HMF in cash or in kind donations for installation of the statue. HMF has over $100,000 in such funding thus far.
The City has finalized plans with Zephyr, the developer of the South Cove project, to place the Hobie Memorial in an adjacent public park, which will be located on PCH between the Pedestrian Bridge and Doheny Park Plaza. This is a park that will be dedicated to the surfing and sailing history of Dana Point.
