Water Deflecting Sculptures Not For Sale by Ryan Burch opens in Encinitas

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 19 June, 2013 : - - A new show will consist of 40 unique hand-shaped boards that Ryan Burch made to ride, and none are for sale. This will be an exhibition of those boards and then he'll spend the next year surfing all of them. Other special guests will also have some boards on display too.

Ryan is a local Encinitas surfer and shaper and utilizes his vast knowledge of surfboard design history to craft futuristic asymmetrical surfboards from beyond. He has gained widespread attention as both a test pilot and conceptual craftsman and stands at the forefront of the do-it-yourself movement and innovation. He was influential in the resurgence of finless surfing and rides everything from blocks of foam to high performance boards and longboards. He rips at all of them.

The exhibition will take place at UNIV's The Garage event space, located adjacent to the UNIV shop at 1053 S. Coast Hwy in Encinitas. The event will run from 7-10pm. Music will be played and there will also be beer.
