The shop has been hit hard with the Flu bug... Our apologies if your boards are finished a little off schedule. We hope we can all be at full strength for next week!

More Sacred Craft

Buck Noe's booth was slammed all day! Buck, who is better known for his high performance short boards and longboards showed off his mega talent with some beautiful classic shapes!
Richard Novak, Doug Haut, Marc Andreini and Nick Palandrani go over one of the Haut Bump attempts from the shape off.
Here it is; the "Man Board" and a few other boards in the SCBBG booth.

PS. At the show we were advertising 10% of proceeds from the sales of T-shirts and Sweatshirts to go to the Red Cross; we are extending that sale until April 15!

The Sacred Craft Show was incredible! Where do I start? Well, we all know that this show was in honor of Doug Haut and that he is celebrating his 50th anniversary shaping surfboards. But, on top of that, the city of Santa Cruz officially made March 19th Doug Haut Day!

Then there was the shape off; Steve Coletta, Bob Pearson, Mark Angel, Wayne Rich and Ward Coffey battled it out trying to replicate the Haut Bump. These are some of the best shapers on the planet and in the end it was Ward Coffey taking the trophy. We are very proud of Ward and honored to work on his boards.

Speaking of proud, we are also very proud Nick Palandrani for winning best in show with boards we built for him.

Thanks so to everyone who came to see at our booth. All the positive response to our work really makes it all worth while!
