2011 Sacred Craft Santa Cruz – March 19 + 20

February 28, 2011


3.23.11 SACRED CRAFT RECAP – We’re back from Santa Cruz where the Spring leg of the Sacred Craft was held this past weekend. Spending anytime in the magical town of Santa Cruz is always a memorable event. Surf was big and stormy which meant the show was well-attended. We had plenty of old friends, locals and legends stop by to say hello and check out the boards on display. Bing Copeland signed many books and talked to a lot of old friends. Matt Calvani did his part for the SurfAid International benefit (Shapers4Humanity) on the first day of the event following Stretch and Pat Rawson, shaping a 10’1 Bing Pipeliner Gun which Randy Rarick liked so much, he asked if SurfAid would allow him to auction off the board in his upcoming auction in Hawaii! Robert August and John Carper also shaped boards in the benefit the second day. Ward Coffey won the Master Crafstman Shape-off tribute to Santa Cruz shaper, Doug Haut. I posted some pictures from the event at the following link if you’d like to check them out!

Bing rider Anna Gudauskas isn't one to sit still for too long. Travelling to remote waves in cold climates seems to be an addiction of sorts. Although the temps are below freezing, seeing waves peel off with no one around is enough to warm up her big smile. Check out the photos by Sarah Lee.
