Sacred Craft

The name alone should be a tip off to how shapers and surfers feel about their boards. The Sacred Craft Expo this month showcases that spiritual bond we have with the equipment we ride.

But how does one deal with literally hundreds of insanely designed and crafted pieces of functional artwork, all assembled under one roof? Easy, get yourself invited to come down and shape a board in a friendly, competitive sort of way. Well, that wasn't the plan but it happened and I'm honored, humbled in fact, to be included in this year's line up for the Shape-Off.

Last year's show was such a buzz. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone and what will be showcased. It's a very positive and inspiring experience when an industry as small as ours can come together and collectively say "Wow! We're artists and craftsmen and we make the coolest toys around."
