Last fall we paid a visit to Hobie’s Stand Up Paddle
division. Lead shaper and craftsman, Mark Johnson was a great host. He gave us a full tour of the Hobie
shaping bays, and also talked with us about the latest and greatest that Hobie
has to offer. He even gave us a few sneak peaks at some new technology.
After our tour, Mark took us to Dana Point’s Baby Beach to try out the new 12’6” and 14’ race boards
. It was our first chance to look at the new carbon fiber blend called PCX. The boards are beautiful. In this video clip Mark talks about the Hobie PCX Race Elite 12’6”
. Special thanks to Mark and his staff for showing us such hospitality.

race line and their all-water ATR
