One from the rafters


Shaped and Designed by Phil

This should have been the teaser shot
This Destination Surf canvas bag has been everywhere!

Classic Edwards shape with three stringers
Volan glass and 3 stick blank

A lot of extra wood / work in these blanks
Glass leash loop

Special Phil Edwards model gold lams

There are two of these old Hobie lams on the bottom

Signature on top of the glass work


Nose rail shot

Tail rail

A great board when the surf is small and perfect with slight off shores.


If you grew up surfing in Southern California in the 60's Phil Edwards was the King.

Between the movies and the boards and the boats,

Mr Edwards was at ground zero of the Southern California surf lifestyle movement.

Not in a marketing and promotional way, he was just a class act who like to surf and sail.

When he was done he just sailed away in his catamaran "El Gato"

First out at Pipeline

I bought this board used up in Huntington years ago.

A beautiful board by a master craftsman.

It's up for sale

I used to do a series of my old boards from the rafters. Kind of fun getting them down washing off the dust and discussing their place in my history as well as in surfboard development timeline.
