Sustainable Surf & SHACC join forces to showcase surfing materials
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 20 November, 2013 - Sustainable Surf and the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center (SHACC) will present a unique exhibit showcasing the progression of surfboard design, traditional materials, and exciting new planet friendly materials that are making headway in the surf industry.
Guests will have the opportunity to explore the surfboard's idyllic Polynesian beginnings, its petrochemical past and present, and its current, cutting edge future - through a gallery of game changing surfboards.
The launch party for the "What's in Your Board" exhibit is this Saturday, November 23rd from 6-9 pm at SHACC, located at 110 Calle Iglesias in San Clemente. Admission is $5 for the public, free for SHACC members.
During the evening, Ryan Harris of E-Tech Boards and Chiron Stewart of MAC Glassing will conduct a glassing demonstration using Super Sap - a new non-toxic plant based epoxy resin made by Entropy Resins. Harris and Stewart will glass contemporary board shapes from Lost and TPatterson.
Guests will examine 'Deep Blue' choices available for dramatically improved materials and the other positive impacts our individual actions can have right now in our local communities to help ensure surfing's sustainable future.
The event will also include a raffle for a new "Enjoy" bodysurfing hand plane, tasty food provided by Mahé, and no host beverages, including wines by Longboard Vineyards, Primo beer, and Hawaiian Springs water.
"What's in Your Board" will display surfboard designs from Channel Islands, Lost, Firewire, Timmy Patterson, Grain Surfboards, Brink Hydrocraft, Jon Wegener, Stretch Surfboards, and a selection of boards from the SHACC collection. The exhibit will be on display until January 31, 2014.
The SurfingHeritage & Culture Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, presenting and promoting surfing's heritage for the appreciation and education of current and future generations; and to achieving our goal of surfing being more accurately understood, represented and enjoyed.
