The Boardroom International Surfboard Show

presented by US BLANKS – DEL MAR FAIRGROUNDS – MAY 2 & 3, 2020
Celebrating its 12th year, the Boardroom (formerly Sacred Craft) highlights the surfboard manufacturing industry. A gathering of like minded enthusiasts who are drawn by an authentic love for riding waves and the crafts that move us along those waves.
So much more than a tool, the surfboard is the philosophical icon, a sacred craft, a culturally pervasive symbol of freedom, adventure and enduring youth. This is why the surfboard builder was once the primary arbiter of surfing culture, from those early Hawaiian kahunas to the first wave of board manufactures. Think back: Hobie, Hansen, Bing, Weber, Larkin, Noll, Jacobs, Haut, et al. These surfboard builders shaped surf culture, both literally and figuratively. It was all about the ride–what you wore came second. Since 2007 THE BOARDROOM SHOW has reasserted and maintained this philosophy. To put the surfboard — and the modern day kahunas who craft and design them — back at the forefront of surf culture. Today the international surfboard building community places surf culture, its influence, its importance, its responsibility, back in the hands of the artisans who shape our sacred craft – and ultimately our future. Please join us as we showcase builders, designers, craftsman, surfboards, essential surf equipment, gear, art, music & more.

The SPIT Cast
What our production quality lacks we attempt to make up for with honest, sincere surf talk. Two friends on a verbal stroll through the week in surf. Bavardage on caffeine. It is our aim to provide information, insight and entertainment; and to present surfing in a sincere, honest, good-natured light. We are not perfect, but we aim for progress. We hope you like our banter.
