2019 Coastal Craft

May 20 2019

After taking a hard look at the overall Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic, we noticed an opportunity to grow even further on Sunday. We are currently paying for the tent to be there, waiting for the awards ceremony after the contest, but it wasn’t generating much income throughout the day. Having people buy beer (donated by the Pelican), purchase lunch, bid on items in our silent auction, and continue to buy a contest sweatshirt or t-shirt, are all ways we generate funds. So how can we get people to visit the tent on Sunday? We are proud to now bring you COASTAL CRAFT, celebrating the surfboard craftsmen of the PNW!

The event will be held on Sunday from 10am to 4pm and feature several surfboard shapers from around the PNW. We will also have other craftsmen within the surf industry participating and you will be able to demo surfboards and fins from many of these brands. A mobile shaping bay will be here which allows for demonstrations and classes, and we will be auctioning off all boards crafted during the event. In addition, each board will be glassed at a later date by El Brado. A beer garden will be open sponsored by Pelican Brewing, Jefe’s Fish Tacos will be serving up tasty grub, and live music will keep the good vibes flowing. More information will follow as we continue to put Coastal Craft together.
