Sacred Craft Surfboard Expo

13 10 2009

This weekend was the Sacred Craft surfboard Expo at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The show was all about the surfboard and Dick Brewer, who is considered by many to be one of the most influential surfboard shapers of all time. Pat Rawson took the win in the Shape Off Challenge, beating out four other master shapers who also attempted to replicate one of Brewer’s boards circa 1972-73. Thanks to Scott Bass for producing a great show. A whole lot of stoke going on!
