The Innovations of Hobie


We're in the process of gathering material for an upcoming exhibit titled "The Innovations of Hobie" which will open to the public on Sunday, April 29, 2012. There will be a private reception the night before for Members of Surfing Heritage, and we're expecting quite a turnout. If you're not a current member or are overdue for your renewal, now's the time! Naturally, one of the aspects we'll be covering is the Hobie Cat. Dick Metz's good friend, Jim McElveen donated this copy of "The Worrell 1000", a grueling 1,000 mile race that takes place on the East Coast, running between Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and Virginia Beach, Va. All the competitors use 16-foot Hobie Cats. Jim's sailing partner, Mike Snow, is shown here on page 64 of this book (Mike's wearing the black and white striped shirt). That's Jim McElveen (in the grey sweat shirt with red shirt collar, with SHF Founder, Dick Metz).

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
