Second hand surfboard, remake of the classic Hobie, Phil Edwards model, PU foam glassed in epoxy. Californian Phil Edwards was regarded by many as the best/most stylish surfer of the late-1950s to the mid-1960s, though he rarely competed. Widely credited as the first surfer to successfully ride Hawaii’s infamous Pipeline in 1968, Edwards inspired the first significant generation of surfers around the globe, among them Australia’s 1964 world champion Midget Farrelly. Hobie Surfboards in California produced a triple-stringer, D-fin, Edwards model (with numbered foil logo), which was imported to Australia by Paul Witzig. This remake is based on that model. To find one of these in Australia is super rare. Never been ridden. A slight depression towards the nose, one small rail blemish towards the tail, and board has yellowed off slightly. Glassed by ‘Epoxy Pro glass works’, California. We have been told only a handful of these were ever made. Would be an amazing board to ride, or hand in your man cave. A great investment for the future. No fin.
