G&S SURFBOARDS 60TH ANNIVERSARY

A full time line of  G&S Surfboard Models. G&S was never just one shaper, its always been a collaboration of a team of talented shapers and surfers that worked under the Larry Gordon and Floyd Smith concepts of design– and they still hold to those. G&S will be displaying concept ads and making reproductions of certain models to have in the booth like the Stretch, the Midget Farrelly Stringerless, the Egg, Modern Machine, Water Skate, Summerfish and more…. all the way to the 80’s Tri and current models.

Booth E4 in the main aisle.
GENE COOPER’S SKIL PLANER TIMELINE

Thirty two years of collecting. Without a doubt the most in-depth look at the machine widely regarded as the Alpha and Omega of surfboard shaping – Skil 100 Planer. They all look similar but there are 21 variations or badge changes on the 115v US versions of these planers. A work in progress, Gene is constantly on the prowl. Swing by Gene Cooper’s booth and have a chat ; decades of great shaping tool history and oh yeah, some mighty fine surfboards too.

Booth E7 in the main aisle.
BING SURFBOARDS 60TH ANNIVERSARY

Bing Copeland played a major role in helping surfing and the surfboard industry to become what they are today. At 13, he became fascinated while helping out at pioneer surfboard maker Dale Velzy’s workshop in Manhattan Beach. He spent the mid ’50s in the Coast Guard stationed in Hawaii and surfed the big waves of Oahu’s North Shore and Makaha. By 1959, back in Southern California, Bing was making surfboards commercially and his company became one of the longest-running and most progressive in the surfing world.

Booth D4 in the main aisle.

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.
