The Boardroom At The OC Fair
The Orange County Fair played host to this year’s West Coast edition of The Boardroom, a surfboard and shaper show dedicated to honoring and showcasing the craft, while giving companies and individuals within the industry awareness and exposure from the surrounding surf communities. Open to the public, the two-day show was hopping on Saturday, with three adjoining halls filled with surf and skate gear, from cruiser boards to accessories and foam companies.
The Best Of Show division gave passersby a taste of the broad spectrum that is the craft of surfboard shaping, with boards being honored under the following categories: Best Sustainable Surfboard, Best Longboard, Best Artistic Surfboard, Best Shortboard, and Best Concept Surfboard. Several live shaping bays were also lit up with shapers from all different backgrounds, with several competing at once in the Icons Of Surf and Chunk of Foam Challenge contests.
