Guests can enjoy free food, drinks, live music and a very special appearance from original Katin seamstress since 1961, Sato Hughes. Event attendees can also shop the new collection at the Hobie Dana Point store, which features a collaborative surf trunk as well as custom t-shirts and hats, made right here in the USA.

This special-edition collection truly highlights both company’s united dedication to providing both endless quality and innovation, in company with both the Katin and Hobie family’s preservation of excellence and commitment to exceptional durability.

In the early 1950's Nancy and Walter Katin were in the business of making canvas boat covers. It was upon request from local surfers that they made the first pair of custom canvas surf trunks. Word quickly spread of their ability to withstand the demands of the sea and an industry was born. In 1977, Nancy initiated the annual Katin Pro/Am Team Challenge at the north side of Huntington Beach's pier, a team event where amateur surfers can compete alongside the pros. Surf legends such as Kelly Slater and Tom Curren have won the Katin Pro/Am. Nancy passed away in 1986, leaving the company to Sato Hughes, her loyal seamstress. Katin continues to take pride in its title as one of California’s first brands to make surf trunks and continues its commitment to selling high-quality, durable goods, both with the iconic surf board shorts and lifestyle apparel, with the same gracious, mellow-hearted attitude since 1954.


Hobie Surf Shops were founded in February 1954 by Hobie Alter. Dedicated to the idea of quality and innovation, the customer experience has always been our number one priority. We have 5 locations with deep roots serving the Orange County coastal communities. Come in and say ‘Hi!’ we love seeing you.
