The Boardroom

All about the crafts that
move us along waves

Celebrating its 12th year, the Boardroom 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 Show

A drama in a shaping bay

Each and every show we honor an iconic board builder and this year will be no different in the Icons of Foam Tribute to the Masters Shape-off presented : Presented by US BLANKS.

 

Of course there will be a packed show floor brimming with shapers and surfers discussing hundreds of state-of-the-art surfboards, wetsuits, fins, art and gear from the surf industries leaders.

The ultimate surf event with a variety of content

Latest surf equipment presentations
Presenting the latest surf equipment at each exhibition booth. You can check the items you want to try this summer, including boards, wet suits, clothes, fins and accessories. Limited sales of professional use items are also planned.

 

Surfboard shaping contest : Presented by US BLANKS
With the theme decided, the participants will shape the board in a special shape room in the venue in 90 minutes and three host shapers will judge the boards. There will be talk sessions and discussions after the contest.

 

Surfboard Shaping Demonstrations : Presented by US BLANKS
A chance to see board shaping live. In the special shape room in the hall, shaper of event participating brand performs shaping. You should feel something from the scene where the form is cut and the board is born.
