The Boardroom International Surfboard Show – 2012

The 2012 Boardroom International Surfboard Show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds was all time! Industry heads collided with surf savvy groms from age 5 to 50 who roamed the event floor and soaked up everything on offer.

The event brought together the producers of varying takes on the type of boards one can make to ride a wave. On hand were legends like Mark Richards, Robert August, and Lance Carson. Next to these classic craftsman were also far out concepts like Evilgood’s coffin shaped board and Donny Brink’s bodysurfboard. Suffice to say there was plenty of creativity on tap. If you didn’t make it out, don’t blow it next year.

TDK LogoTodd is a gentle soul with a deep passion for shaping excellent surfboards and running Pride Surf and Skate down in Ocean Beach, California. A father with two groms of his own, TDK makes sure the skate section is stocked and surfboards are always on tap for them to go play together in the waves.

You can teach them some of the things you’ve learned about surfing and then when you watch them surpass your skills and they’re 13 years old, as much as it’s bitter sweet, it’s also a thrill at that moment.

If you ever get the opportunity and are lucky enough to catch TDK when it’s not too busy at the shop, make sure to take some time and enjoy his presence. Spark up a conversation and listen to what this guy has to say. He’es a great storyteller and has the power to express concepts with such conviction that you walk away brimming with stoke and encouragement. You’ll definitely learn something you didn’t know before.

Fiesso d’Artico

This is the place where some of the finest handmade leather shoes are born. The highly skilled crew at the Louis Vuitton shoe factory are definitely in a class of their own. Their attention to detail and nimble steady hands produce a product far above your average dress shoe. After a little direction, we’d love to see what they could do with a chunk of foam!
