Greetings, Shredderz! This post, like yesterday’s feature on a Zephyr single fin, is best suited for surfboard collectors with champagne tastes. What we have here is a rare example of a Phil Edwards Honolulu longboard. I’ve written before about Phil Edwards signature boards for Hobie Surfboards, which remain coveted among longboard collectors. As much as I love the Hobie Phil Edwards Model, which is an undisputed classic, I’m also partial to the Phil Edwards Honolulu run, which were made during Edwards’ time living and shaping in Hawaii during the late 1960s.
The Phil Edwards Honolulu model pictured above is currently listed for sale on Craigslist in Orange County (San Clemente, to be exact). The board has been restored, and it looks to be in great condition.
The catch, of course, is the price: a cool $2,900. I won’t get into details on the pricing here, but Phil Edwards Honolulu boards are pretty hard to come by.
If you want to check out the listing for the board, you can do so here. All pics above are via the Craigslist posting.
Finally, I’m keeping this post short and sweet because I’m planning on a longer feature on the Phil Edwards Honolulu model. Stay tuned on that one…
