Sender Hart visited California from his home in Israel in 1975 and, even though he spoke no English, decided to move here. After several short-lived business ventures, Hart used his savings to start a specialty retail apparel company in 1984. Hart's Sweats & Surf Inc. grew rapidly. Today it has 48 shops, most of them in California, that sell sweat shirts and sweat pants and trendy beachwear in a variety of colors and styles.
