Hobie Sand Bar Retaurant at John Wayne Airport exposes diner to Hobie Alter’s life

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 27 January, 2012 : - - San Juan Capistrano -- Hobie Designs is proud to announce the grand opening of the Hobie Sand Bar Restaurant inside John Wayne Airport’s new South terminal wing. Sporting an unofficial motto of “A nice place to run aground”, The Hobie Sand Bar’s menu and ambiance represents a beach lifestyle that Hobie Alter created over 60 years ago as a youth growing up in Laguna Beach. The restaurant features a full menu of coastal inspired fare that will transport the weary traveler out of the terminal and onto the beach.

Besides the amazing dining experience, every part of the Sand Bar transports the diner through a visual experience of Hobie Alter’s life, from authentic pictures and memorabilia to the furnishings, each piece representing decades of innovation that created the “Have a Hobie Day” lifestyle that has been experienced worldwide.

The creation of the Hobie Sand Bar has been a tight knit collaboration between the restaurants operator, HMS Host, and the entire Hobie family who have been instrumental in creating the authentic Hobie Sand Bar vibe. Hobie’s sons Hobie jr. and Jeff working with Mark Christy (Jeff’s brother in law) in developing the initial concept and Laurie Alter (Jeff’s wife and owner of Tuvalu Home in Laguna Beach) as head designer for the project, were all instrumental in the final project. Hobie Sr. is very proud of this project and the reflection it presents of his life and heritage.
