Greetings, Shredderz! If you’ve noticed that there have been more posts than usual, well, consider that one of the few benefits to a raging case of cabin fever. Once again my sincere hope is all of you are safe and sound. For today’s Sagas of Shred entry we have an ad featuring Phil Edwards and his famous Hobie model. I’ve written up a few Hobie Phil Edwards Model surfboards — check out this recent post — all of which were from the original run in the Sixties.
The ad you see above, however, originally ran in the December 1990 issue of Surfer Magazine (Vol 31, No 12). As you can see, Hobie and Phil Edwards revived their famous collaboration in 1990. You can immediately identify the more recent Hobie Phil Edwards Model by the red logo, versus the blue foil logo (and individual numbers) that appeared on the original run of boards.
Thanks for reading and we’ll be back next Thursday with more Sagas of Shred!
