    Looking for a Hobie Phil Edwards Model 9'0"
    Triple stringer 1990's version with modern fin box and wood tail
    Any condition considered, happy with a few scuffs and repairs, must be water tight
    Shipping to the UK (can arrange collection)
    Let me know if you have one for sale, or if you hear of anyone considering selling
    Happy to pay a 'Finder's fee' for the right board.

    Thanks very much for taking a look for me. My brother has a 90's Phil Edwards Model on this side of the pond, he let me surf it over Easter break and thought I would look around for one. I made an offer on the San Diego board earlier this week, pristine condition, however he's holding out for many more dollars than I can afford. A used board with a few scuffs, repaired dings, but watertight would be fine!

    If you are looking for a rider, the PE models shaped by other shapers than Phil are way less expensive. The Phil shapes command a premium with collectors. Terry Martin shaped a bunch of the PE models in the 80's. I bought a Terry shaped Phil new in 1983. Excellent rider, superb foil.

    Many thanks for the link, great price, classic 3 stringer log, however a bit long at 9'7" - looking for a 9'0" ideally. Will keep searching for the PE Model 'needle in the hay stack'!

    Thank you so much for the link - you're right, it actually looks not too bad. I've requested a few more close up pics. Cheers.

    “This is a vintage board that needs to be restored with lots of TLC” seems like the description says it all. :)
