Hobie DFG model with nifty fabric inlay. Shaped by Terry Martin.
From my bro Rob Willis: “The Hobie crew and I go down to the Dana Point Harbor at lunch whenever we can and paddle for fun and exercise. Whenever I go on my own I am bored and bummed with all the debris, especially plastic bottles/tennis balls/balloons, etc. that accumulates along the jetties. After seeing Skip Frye pick up trash in the movie One California Day, I thought, why not try and pick some up too? So I fashioned a shrimp net into a trailer for the SUP. The benefits became two fold, I can get a great resistance work out and leave the Harbor a little cleaner than I found it.”
The weirdest thing Rob has seen in the water, “One day I was paddling with Casey Walsh and we came across a partially submerged lawn chair. Casey pulled it out and being a good Hawaiian waterman, sat down and paddled the rest of the way in his new chair.”
Rob has made a couple of these trash nets for others so if you are a SUP person who wants to make a clean sweep shoot him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
