  • Sacred Craft 2010: A Cultural Backmarker
    aside from a six channel bottom is probably one of the more difficult designs to build Local shapers Todd Proctor Matt Moore Dennis Ryder Wayne Rich and Michel Junod along with Nick Palandrini from Nor Cal were the invitees The shaper who got the nod for doing the best replica of the Spoon was Wayne Rich That was very cool since he broke his neck surfing El Cap a few years ago and almost did not make it back An incredible come back when you consider that he shapes surfboards for a living Surfboard shaping is physically quite arduous and demands a very high skill level and depth of experience Master surfboard craftsmen are a dying breed Quite literally as the industry has changed so dramatically and the normal cottage industry apprenticeship chain disappeared years ago Surf Art There was a hall way formed by two rows of Yaters and each board had a picture and date on it Pretty remarkable that Rennie is able to document so much of his and surfing s past Just mind blowing I shaped around 16k surfboards over a 20 year period and could not even think about accomplishing that The Surfing Heritage Museum played a large role in this fantastic back marker The organization had both Curator Barry Haun and head Dick Metz on hand the entire week end Dick Metz in the Surf Story Hall Surf Story by Rob Havassy two different site links The entire second hall at Sacred Craft was about the book Surf Story and the book tells the story of its own existence pretty well Most surfers if they read about what happened will probably get a bit pissed off The actual tale goes all the way back to when Abercrombie purloined one of the legendary Leroy Grannis images of a bunch of surf icons and used it in an ad campaign And when the surfers took exception to that and having their names and likenesses used to promote a company like A F and Hollister were blown off they sued A F and forced the issue on an intellectual property rights violation basis A F ran a nationwide ad campaign of a monkey holding a surfboard as their response to surfing and the people who had a large hand in making the sport what it is after the fact Got to admire having enough money and humor to do what they did but it was a very obvious statement about what they really think of you all Then when Rob s art was taken and duplicated in similar fashion he went after them as well Since A F was buying somewhere around 10000 mags a month the surf publishing industry ignored Rob as he sued A F not wanting to piss their vendor off It appeared as if surf publishing had sold out the sport by not supporting one of their own and instead going with A F by their silence in some industry observers opinions So
