2001 World Champion CJ Hobgood excels in hollow lefts. As he ages and the tour gets younger he ups his aerial game to match. But it's at the draining lefts (Mundaka, Teahupoo, Fiji) where CJ shows his best results. Still on tour without a major sponsor, CJ gets creative with a variety of sponsors to keep the dream alive, signing on with anti-drug and suicide campaigns to bring a welcomed altruistic message to World Tour events.

SPONSORS: Globe footwear, Smith Eyewear, Vestal Watches, FCS Fins, DaKine accessories, Finatic™ Fin Testing Program™, To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) organization and Quiet Flight Surfboards
