Sacred Craft Announces Event Schedule

The Sacred Craft Consumer Surfboard Expo – an exposition celebrating the surfboard and the culture that emanates from the craft – will be kicking off at Wyland Exhibit Hall, Del Mar Fairgrounds this weekend.

Their goal is to put the surfboard – and the modern-day kahunas who craft them – back at the forefront of surf culture. To place that influence, that importance, that responsibility, back in the hands of the artisans who shape our sacred crafts – and ultimately our future.
