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 board was ridden at San O', Huntington, Montauk, and primarily Gilgo in all sorts of conditions. But was also ridden 30lbs ago so......time to pass on a classic.
