Kaiser Permanente Arena – 140 Front Street, Santa Cruz
Saturday, October 8 10am – 6pm & Sunday, October 9, 2016 10am -4pm
In it’s tenth year, its fifteenth iteration, the Boardroom (formerly Sacred Craft) highlights the surfboard manufacturing industry. A gathering of like minded enthusiasts who are drawn by an authentic love for riding waves and the crafts that move us along those waves.
If that’s too flowery for ya try this on for size; It’s a shred show: top shapers, top boards, top manufacturing processes. Cutting edge stuff. Hard goods are featured and hard core surfers show up and geek out. Everything and anything that rides waves, or helps us to ride waves i.e. fins, wetsuits, wax, grip, skateboards, training devices, board-shorts, and accessories are on display.
The Icons of Foam Shape-off is a pillar of The Boardroom International Surfboard Show presented by Santa Cruz Skateboards and this year, six shapers have been chosen to compete in honor of Santa Cruz surf industry icon John Mel. The six shapers who will attempt to replicate a classic John Mel design are: Ashley Lloyd Thompson, Ward Coffey, Ryan Lovelace, Kalu Coletta, Michel Junod, and Nick Palandrani. Each of the six will be allotted 1.5 hours in the shaping bay.
