What the Hobie website says about the Phil Edwards Glider:

‘The glide is a collaboration between Phil Edwards, Colin McPhillips, and Mark Johnson. The shape is based on a solid mahogany board that Phil shaped decades ago. We took Phil’s master shape and tweaked the rocker and outline a bit to come up with an instant classic. The board has perfect foil and a beautiful outline smooth contour on the bottom make this board a glide master. The bottom starts out in the nose with roll from rail to rail then flows into a slightly rolled bottom with 60/40 rails. In the tail, the board has slight vee with soft down rails to a hard edge at the end of the tail.’

What people are saying about it:

“One of the most iconic boards in the history of surfing; the Hobie Phil Edwards Model is back. We are re-creating this classic model to the tee with the direction of and discerning eyes of Phil Edwards himself. The model has been absent from the Hobie line up for 17 years we are proud to bring it back. This classic is one of the smoothest rides around great in small to overhead surf. Perfect foil and beautiful outline make this board one of the all-time great boards. The bottom starts out in the nose with a nice curve from rail to rail then flows into a slightly rolled bottom with 60/40 rail throughout.” – Island Surf Company
