Pendos’ eye view of Sacred Craft Del Mar 2011

Hello, there! The Sacred Craft surfboard expo in Del Mar this weekend was a great show. Steve says it reminds him of a car rally . . . what’s under the hood kind of show . . . with all of the beautiful polished, pin-lined surfboards, Yeah! We wish everyone participating at Sacred Craft lots of success and good times. We are very happy that the 2011 Tribute to the Masters is dedicated to Carl Ekstrom. Carl is a very kind gentleman, so talented and always encouraging to others; we are honored to know him for decades. Carl is a treasure to the surfing community. We love you Carl!

We hope that you enjoy these snap shots taken on Saturday, October 8th. On Sunday October 9th, Wayne Rich won the Tribute to the Masters shape off. Congratulations to Wayne, and to all of the shapers!

And congratulations to the Thomson family, with Daniel Thomson winning Best of Show for his board design and kudos to Mark for his soft product . . . aka surf mats.

Aloha and Cowa-flexit!
