Sacred Craft Spring 2011

Sacred Craft is happening this weekend in Santa Cruz, CA.  If you haven’t heard of the expo yet, what are you doing?  Its basically the premium place to geek out on surfboards.  There is one more day left, Sunday the 20th, so if you’re anywhere near Nor-Cal, make the journey.  Below are some things I enjoyed seeing today.

Here is the crowd at the show.  A lot of people showed up.  As you can see, the building is 50% surfers and 50% surfboards.

Hurley Pro 2010

One of my favorite days of the year is the day I go out to the Trestles WCT event.  There is always good swell on hand for surfing Uppers and watching the pros at Lowers is inspiring.  I make a day of it.

US OPEN of Surfing 2010

The US OPEN of Surfing is one of the biggest surfing events in the world with over 100,000 people showing up to participate.  What is really cool is that happens to be a surfing competition going on at the same time on the South Side of HB pier…

I don’t know how I feel about this year’s mayhem.  Since I currently live right down the block from the pier, I am there a lot.  I was at the OPEN 4 or 5 times over the week and had a number of experiences.  Lets look at some:

X Games with Team Vew-Do

This weekend I met up with the team riders from Vew-Do to talk about their balance trainer.  They are from Vermont, but happened to be in town for the X games.  We talked about the board, balance training, action sports and everything else.  Oh ya, and in the background guys were getting 50 feet of air.

I Tried Out A Few Racing SUPs

I swept.  That is a statement not many surfers would be eager to admit.  But at the K5 SUP Demo, my mind was officially blown.

Those of you that read my stuff at SurfScience know that I am a fairly open minded surfer.  I ride all sorts of boards and believe that there is a best fit for every wave/day and it isn’t always a standard shortboard or log.  So when I heard that K5, the surf shop I grew up in, was having a SUP demo, I realized that I would have to go, despite the little voice inside me that was laughing at the idea.
