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!

It was the allure of the California Coast in summer that reunited us. The days that stretched on well into the evening, a warmed Pacific Ocean where spring suits felt like enough and shimmering blue-green waves that tumbled onto shore so consistently they felt almost mechanical. Such lucid memories were enough for the three of us, who lived across the country, to reunite in San Diego and prepare for seven days of surfing twice a day up the coast with a couple of Bing Surfboards in tow. The board models we brought were the 9’6” Levitator, the 9’4” Continental and the 9’2” Pocket Knife.

At just 22 years old and hailing from a place not known for its surf quality, new Bing ambassador Trip Chandler has put together quite an impressive visual resume riding longboards. In between finishing up college courses you can either find this kid holding a single fin log or a fishing pole, but never without a big grin on his face.
