Event celebrates boards that work and don't work

How would this alaia fare at the "It Doesn't Not Work" show?



Board Design 

New York and New Jersey embrace failed designs 

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 19 March, 2014 - The first ever surfcraft design show featuring surreal to sublime shapes by New York’ & New Jersey’s subterranean board builders. Function is purely subjective when fun is the ultimate goal. Display your failed concepts and accidental discoveries. "It Doesn’t NOT Work” seeks to lift up the hood on surfboard experimentation and design. Boards that are proven to work. Boards that are proven to NOT work.

Calling all backyard shapers, pro board builders, and mad surf scientists in New York and New Jersey!  We are looking for submissions of experimental surf craft for the first show of this kind.  Send us your designs. Submissions be of an original shape or a unique construction that you have built yourself.  Extra points if you've built more than one and have revised the design. 

Submissions should be emailed to:  no later than April 15th, 2014. Please send images of each entry and please be sure to include a description of the design. It Doesn't NOT Work: the outer limits of pure surf design.
