Sebastian Chapter and Hobgood Kick Up with Globe
On August 19th, Surfrider volunteers came out to support the Hobgood brothers on the opening day of their new surf shop in Indialantic. "They are one of us, local surfers and fishermen" explained Brian Lind. Throughout the morning volunteers passed out recycled plastic garbage bags to beachgoers and brochures teaching how to protect the ocean.
After cooling down with a couple of snow cones from the Christian Surfers tent, the Inlet Chapter went to the back of the shop and set up for the surfing film double feature - Quiksilver's First Chapter and Globe's The Secret Machine. A heavy downpour scattered the viewers, but show went on after it cleared up. Surfrider is hoping that the Hobgoods represent on the ASP tour as they are ambassadors of the Surfrider Pro-Team.
