Not that too many will care but I have resigned from Dagger as a brand and team manager. Time to pursue other things and paddle more. It has been an awesome journey and I appreciate every minute of it. Thanks to the original crew that taught me a lot. Steve Scarbourgh, Joe Pulliam, Tony Lee, Mike Steck, Andy Gilliam, Marc Lyle, Brian brown and Snowy. To all the team Dagger members who I still believe are the greatest representatives in the industry on so many levels. It has been one of the greatest gifts in my life to work with them and learn the industry from R&D to final product. And the paddling trips! Now there will be even more time to get after it on the water. Good luck to Dagger and the crew in Easley. Since the formal announcement went out I thought I would share.


Release:

Good Afternoon, It's with great regret that we announce Ken "Hobie" Hoeve's resignation as manager of Team Dagger so that he can devote more time to other industry-related interests. However, while we will miss his leadership, we won't be losing his passion, commitment and guidance as Hobie will continue to be involved as an extremely valuable member of the team. . Hobie began his relationship with Dagger 12 years ago. During this time, he has been an important part of its growth and has always been one of Dagger's most passionate ambassadors, fully dedicating himself to both the brand and the team. I personally want to thank him for all of the assistance he provided to me and I'm grateful that we'll continue to have the opportunity to work together. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me ([email protected]) or Courtney King ([email protected]) with any questions, issues or needs that you may have. To all: Please join me in wishing Hobie all the best and thanking him for all that he has done for us and for Dagger. Glad to know that this is not goodbye. Cheri

Good luck Hobie in whatever is next. There is no doubt that you have always been one of the great people in whitewater paddling. Proud to call you a friend and a sometime annoucing partner.

No doubt Hobie... You better still be interested in MC'ing for the Lyons Outdoor Games! Now we will have to put you on the payroll, but it would be worth every dime. You are the best announcer out there.

Good luck bro...

Best of luck.

Life is like an Etch A Sketch, when you don't like what's going down... Shake it up and start over.

It's Daggers loss, but I'm sure you'll always be Dagger to the Bone.

New digs can be refreshing. It's been four months for me and I'm loving the new challange. If you ever need anything pm me. I don't get on very often anymore, but I do stop by every now and then.

congrats

Congrats on the move and best of luck in all 29 of your new roles within the industry. You've always set the bar extremely high and set an example for others to follow and I believe folks will always remember that if nothing else - though there was that whole boxing thing.

Peace Bro

Thanks Hobie

Thanks for everything. Over the years you have made burritos at our gear swap, dealt with challenging customers, given clinics, held demos, and been a great resource to me as a dealer. Thanks for being one of the few that is out there setting an example. Always approachable, always reachable, never an attitude. I look forward to seeing you on the water more. Thanks Hobie.

So what are the 29 other roles in the industry going to be?

I have only met you officially once. You gave me some solid advice on how to modify a G-force, which worked great.

Never met ya, Hobie, but best wishes. Oh, and does this mean we can drop shrooms and bust caps at the takeouts again, finally? :)

TNF

The North Face

Jumped out of paddle sports, so I could see the rest of the state. It's all good, but the product line is HUGE.
