Fiberglass

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.

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.
