The new Hobie Surf Boutique, 151 Avenida Del Mar in San Clemente, is hosting a celebration for team rider Rachael Tilly of Capistrano Beach, Friday, October 25 at 6 p.m. Tilly brought home a silver medal from the International Surfing Association World Longboard Championship in Peru last month.

The event is free and food and refreshments will be served.

The party will also provide an opportunity for event-goers to check out the changes the shop has undergone recently as it transitioned from what was formerly the Hobie Green Room into a new shop dedicated to women and girls.

According to Tracey Engelking, social media marketing specialist and team rider for Hobie Surf Shops, the Hobie store at the top of Del Mar—on the corner of El Camino Real and Del Mar—is now dedicated to carrying products for men. And the new Hobie Surf Boutique—in the former mid-Del Mar location of the Hobie Green Room—has been transformed into a space dedicated to women and girls.

“This new store has everything thing for a beach girl’s lifestyle,” Engelking said. “It is not only a boutique but also a full-service surf shop carrying surfboards designed specifically with female surfers in mind.”

“The Hobie Surf Boutique pays careful attention to the needs of every girl, from beginner to professional-level athletes, like our silver medalist team rider Rachael Tilly,” Engelking said.
