1958 Hobie

 

Here’s a rare one. Still in the hands of the original owner. Bought from the Hobie shop in 1958.

Quite likely one of the so-called “Easter” boards. Looks to be in restorable condition.

 

Where'd ya find that?

Not mine. Belongs to a relative of a friend, who lives in Santa Monica.

Saamy,

Is it foam or balsa? I can't tell from the pics.

Foam. If you know the story of Hobie’s “Easter” boards, it’s self-explanatory. These were among the very first foam “Hobies”.
