Rare Hobie 10’2 longboard shaped by Mike Hynson in 1962 for iconic surf film “The Endless Summer”. One of just 3 surfboards shaped specifically for the movie. Before heading to the airport to film the movie, Bruce Brown informed Mike Hynson and Robert August that they could only bring one board each. This was the 3rd board they were forced to leave behind.

Featuring a unique double t-band stringer design complete with red rails and wooden nose and tail blocks. Finished with a beautiful 9-piece wood fin made of cedar and redwood. Signed “Hynson” on the stringer and more recently, signed and dated 1962 on the Hobie logo by Mike Hynson. The fin has also been signed “Aloha Mike Hynson”. Use as a functional surfboard or trophy surfboard art piece!

“The Endless Summer” was the first real surfing movie ever made. Filmmaker Bruce Brown documented Mike Hynson and Robert August as they traveled across the globe riding waves. The film was shot in Southern California, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tahiti, and Senegal. Brown shot the film with just a single camera and a couple of lenses. The film was an immediate hit. It remains a must watch classic for any fan of surfing.
