Hobie

SOLD !

1969 6’10” Hobie Positive Force

While I haven't surfed since the late 70s I do still have my last custom board that I custom ordered at Hobie's Dana Point shop back in 1967.

She has traveled with me cross country from Texas to Oregon and through my four homes in Oregon.

I have many images that I can email to prospective buyers and there are several already on Swaylocks.

I am the original owner of this 9' Phil Edwards Hobie that I bought in ~1992 during Phil's period of reissuing his classic line. For such a basic looking board it has all the "tells" of having been made by the master. It's got more float than your expect for "only" a 9' board. Beautiful rails, slightly pulled in squash tail, T-Ban stringer, & Gold Foil Hobie logo. It is a great down the line board. Typical heal impressions etc but no punctures. I'd grade it in strong 8 condition, 10 being unridden/mint.
