Dana Point will soon have a 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. 

So much has happened! 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. 
We are asking you to help us achieve our goal of honoring the late Hobie Alter by donating today to the Hobie Memorial Foundation.  We need to raise these funds NOW to make the Hobie Memorial Statue a reality for our community. 

Please show your support and join us by donating to this project and be a part of helping honor the memory of Hobie Alter. 

We thank you and appreciate your support!
