Since 1950, Hobie innovations have been changing the way we live, play and compete on the water. For Hobie Alter, it all started with a big dream in a small garage. What followed was a new way of life in Southern California, and a new way of looking at our watery world. Hobie Polarized sunglasses have become an integral part of connecting sport enthusiasts to the water by providing a better kind of vision: clearer, sharper, glare-free vision. Since 1982, Hobie Polarized is the only choice for active water sportsmen.
