Shaper Studios presents ‘Shaper Sessions’ featuring Matt Calvani
September 20, 2017
Shaper Studios, the world’s first public surfboard workshop, will kick off a new event series named “Shaper Sessions” on September 30th, 2017 at our San Diego Flagship located in the neighborhood of North Park. This is a night for the entire surf community and surf enthusiasts to come out and watch live surfboard shaping by 3 of the world’s most talented shapers while enjoying live surf music and local craft beer.
Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on the 3 boards being shaped through a silent auction where all proceeds will benefit SurfAid, a non profit that helps to improve the health and well being of people living in isolated regions around the world. Each winner will get the chance to customize their new surfboard with the Shaper Studios team.
Matt Calvani, our Master Shaper will be introduced at the event at 5:30pm and will be shaping around 6:00pm. Live music by Millionaire Beach Bums and The Twin Fins starts around 6pm. Hope you can make it!

We were driving at night and thus had already broken one of just two rules we made before crossing the southern border. It wasn’t really our fault. A long construction delay due to recent landslides held us up for over an hour. We passed white crosses on the winding downhill, marking those who’s brakes gave way or tequila got the best of them.
Thanks to all that made it to the Boardroom Show in Del Mar, and to our Bing Surf Shop re-opening party! Lot's of good friends came out to enjoy food by Bird's Eye Kitchen and beers by Saint Archer. We also premiered the movie trailer for our 60th Anniversary documentary series filmed and edited by Bryce Lowe White. Stay tuned for our event at SHAAC in San Clemente in July and our video premiere at Oceanside Surf Museum in August!
