This March 31, 2014 photo shows a metal bar top, all that is left of the Jakeabob's bar and restaurant in Union Beach N.J. After it was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, owner Gig Liaguno-Dorr moved the business several blocks inland to rented space for 2013, but closed it down for good on March 28 due to a continuing inability to get funds to rebuild it. The reopening of Jakeabob's last year was seen as an inspiration to the still-struggling Raritan Bay community. (AP Photo/Wayne Parry)

In this undated black and white photo provided on Monday, March 31, 2014, by Hobie Designs, shows young Hobart "Hobie" Alter in Laguna Beach, Calif. He helped popularize surfing and sailing with the development of the foam surfboard and the "Hobie Cat" sailboat, has died. He was 80. When Hobie built his first surfboard, about the time he graduated from high school in 1950, the old-fashioned, heavy wooden ones that had limited the sport to the strongest and most determined athletes were beginning to give way to lighter balsa wood boards.
