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!

The first Bing I bought was from Bing Surf Shop and it was the Continental model. I think it’s the best noserider in the world and works great for any long, lined up wave. I’ve been riding it for about two years. I also just bought a new Izzy Rider Type II it is amazing! It’s so fast and turns on a dime. This will be the board I ride in surf contests.

At the beginning, it was just an idea, but at the same time, a challenge I had set for myself some time ago. Honestly, I saw it as complicated since it was my first time traveling alone to Europe, and I was curious and nervous because I was literally going to another country. The only thing that reassured me was being able to speak Spanish over there. But, of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire BAPU beachware team who encouraged me and gave me the motivation not to doubt myself and make this a fulfilled goal, we organized various activities while presenting the short film "El Gordo" to raise funds for this trip.

This winter was hard. Was it for you? Did you get good waves? Did you have big, life-shifting moments? Even if you were in Southern California it was really wintery. The weight of the cold months weighed on me like the snow itself. The deep, heavy puddles didn’t empty until just recently.
