Just wanted to get some thoughts on what people think about vintage restored boards? I had a bad experience personally in a purchase a few years ago from an auction. Recently saw someone post a board to a Facebook group of a restored Phil Edwards. Logo looked like it was printed in a piece of paper and laminated on. Posed the question to someone at Hobie and they passed it onto Phil. He said absolutely not one of his boards. He was insistent on using a foil logo that fit between the stringers so it didn’t cover up the wood. In the restoration process the fin was also changed from what looked like a swept back Brewer style fin to the original ash reverse D fin...and a PE foil logo was added in the process. restored boards look beautiful. My biggest problem is when you take something and turn it into something else that would ordinarily be more valuable. Slap a pair of Skips wings on a board, writing Lopez on a lightning bolt. Where’s the integrity?
