I have owned the late-80's, early 90's Phil Edwards Model for several years. It has always been one of my favorite boards. I had often dreamed of somehow, someday acquiring a pristine early-60's model to go with it. By agreeing to take another precious board of mine in trade for this original Hobie, Phil Edwards Model my Brother-from-another-Mother, Francesco Di Tommaso made my dream come true (it's a long story).
I am truly grateful F.D. They make a great photo together.
