Old Hobie

Found some pics of an old Hobie on the net. This photo shows the inscription on stringer. Board is obviously mid 60s vintage with wide balsa stringer, resin panels, and big wooden D fin. Could the initials be Phil Edwards’, perhaps?

I’d be inclined to think so.      At that time period, he was the only guy shaping, that would warrent identifying his work.    In my opinion.     Phil was unique as a surfer.      His skill level was astounding.       He’s the only surfer that I ever got out of the water to watch him surf.     He was that special.      Again, in my opinion.
