"Hofkins is a professional magician who spends his days performing aquaic trickery on a surfboard and his nights astounding and amazing the citizens of Santa Cruz with his hocus-pocus sleight of hand."
—Gretchen Wegrich, Santa Cruz Sentinel

It was great fun to watch all ages in the audience; the sheer joy on the little girl's face (and also her parents') when the single foam red rubber ball in both of her hands turned out to be two little balls in each hand was great fun to see.

The card tricks during dinner were absolutely delightful; I particularly liked the one where you dropped the cards on the table and the one that we had selected pops out face up.
