The Boardroom International Surfboard Show is an event focused on the history, craft and culture of surfboard making. The show, held at Delmar Fairgrounds in San Diego showcases builders, designers, craftsmen, surfboards, essential surf equipment, gear, art, music, and more.
“The surfboard builder was once the primary arbiter of surfing culture, from those early Hawaiian kahunas to the first wave of board manufactures,” the organizer write. “Think back: Hobie, Hansen, Bing, Weber, Larkin, Noll, Jacobs, Haut, et al. These surfboard builders shaped surf culture, both literally and figuratively. It was all about the ride–what you wore came second. Since 2007 THE BOARDROOM SHOW has reasserted and maintained this philosophy. To put the surfboard — and the modern day kahunas who craft and design them — back at the forefront of surf culture. “
