This is a truly classic surfboard from the late 60's with a rare "wishbone" fin!
Hobie began by building beautiful 9-foot balsawood icons for his friends. A couple of decades and 40 tons of sawdust later, Hobie’s lineup virtually comprises the surfing hall of fame; Joey Cabell, Phil Edwards, Corky Carroll, Mickey Munoz, Joyce Hoffman and Yancy Spencer among many, many others. The shaping innovations and meticulous attention to detailed perfection are still Hobie trademarks and the Hobie Surf Team still strikes fear among their competitors.
Corky Carroll. one of the original pioneers of professional surfing, was the first person to be paid to surf and the first to receive endorsements. Carroll was at the forefront of developments in surfing equipment. His Hobie Mini Model, introduced in 1967, was the first production "shortboard" in America and the beginning of the shortboard movement. This vintage board is decorated with the Corky Carroll Mini Model label and still has the wishbone fin box with the hole on the deck where the screw for the fin goes through.
Very hard to find wishbone fin with screw included.
