50's Balsa

The Hobie 57 is an exact replica of Hobie's first production balsa board from 1957. This board looks and feels so pure without any fancy offset stringers or tail blocks. The balsa is from Equador hand glued and shaped by Josh Martin . The only marking on the board is our original Hobie Stamp. The 57 is a must have for that loyal Hobie collector.
