Matt Calvani Takes 3rd in Art of Shaping

October 10, 2011


Congratulations to Matt Calvani who took 3rd place in the Art of Shaping Los Angeles Edition surfboard auction presented by Billabong at the Del Mar Sacred Craft this past weekend.  His submission to the auction, a 12-foot gun surfboard, earned the 3rd highest bid, following first place submission by Jeff Ho and second place submission by Lance Carson and beat out notable submissions by shapers such as Greg Noll, Hap Jacobs, Dewey Weber, Tyler Hatzikian, & Dennis Jarvis.  Not bad for the youngest shaper in the top 3!  The prize for third place was a full-page ad in Surfer Magazine.

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.
