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.
This is a classic Yater Spoon from 1967. It is original, not been refinisshed, just typical dings all repaired. This is in surfable condition, or
suitable for a collectrion. A great piece of surfing history.
The board is designed to surf amazingly well in less than ideal conditions. The tail is one of the most striking and unique features, allowing the rider to get the most out of the wave by generating instant acceleration, and having more volume than a typical shortboard the result is more waves and more fun.
Dimensions: 5' 8'' x 21.5 x 2.5
Fin setup: Futures thruster
The Joel Tudor Diamond Tail is a super versatile longboard. You can ride it in ankle high surf or head high waves and is a great surfboard for someone who wants to progress their surfing and take it to the next level. You can ride it from the tail or the center and it is also a solid noserider. The diamond tail gives you the best of both worlds - the easy turning of a rounded pintail and the stability of a square tail. This board has a beautiful blue resin tint with white pinlines and a red Diamond T Tudor fin that was designed specifically for this board.
