Hobie Surf Shop & Hobie Surfboards present “Surfboard Release Party” with legendary surfer and sailor, Phil Edwards.
A very wise man said “The best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun.” That wise man is Phil Edwards. Legendary surfer, sailor, shaper, boat builder/designer, waterman, and all around surfing style icon. We are proud to be re-establishing our ties to this master craftsman after 17 years. Hobie Surfboards will be debuting two all new Phil Edwards surfboards, The Phil Edwards Model and The Phil Glide, at a “Surfboard Release Party” at Hobie Surf Shop in Dana Point on Friday, April 7th with the great Mr. Edwards in attendance.
The Hobie Phil Edwards Model is being recreated to the tee under the direction and discerning eyes of Phil Edwards himself. This classic is one of the smoothest rides around, great in small to overhead surf. The Phil Glide is collaboration between Phil Edwards, Colin McPhillips and Mark Johnson. The shape is based on a solid mahogany board that Phil shaped decades ago. These surfboards will be immediately available for purchase and custom ordering.
There will be new Hobie Surfboard Models from and appearances by Mickey Munoz, Colin McPhillips, Bucky Barry, and Phil Rajzman. Master Hobie shaper, Gary Larson, will be hand shaping a new Phil Edwards Model during the night. Music from Matt Akiona, a pop up Hobie History photo wall, and complimentary snacks and drinks starting at 6pm and going until 8pm. All ages welcome, free of charge and open to the public.
