Let me start by saying this: there is no way we can independently authenticate this seller’s claim. But, a Santa Barbara Craigslister may have a piece of history on their hands that they’re looking to make a pretty penny off of.
The ad claims the seller has “the original” Hobie storefront sign, and that it’s the only one of its kind in existence. “Hobie Alter’s hands-on creation for the Hobie Surfboard Dealership,” explains the ad. “Was located in Santa Monica on Wilshire Blvd. Fiberglass and pigmented resin in the perfect Hobie logo proportions. Created in the 60s and has survived with minor dings.”
