“North Florida has a long and rich history of surf culture and I’m excited to see the incredible treasures that are no doubt hiding in garages, rafters and boxes throughout the region,” says Scott Bass. “The Boardroom’s goal is the celebrate and exalt all the fine folks behind the surfboard industry, and recognizing great shapers and boards from years past is an important part of what we do.
