Even though our roots will always stay on the Right Coast, the surfing mecca of Southern California beckons, and this Fall, we’re listening. Grain Surfboards has many customers, builders and interested surfers hailing from Southern California, so soon, we’ll be heading out to meet them in person.
Starting in early October, the Grain staff will leave Maine, head west towards the Northwest city of Portland, Oregon. From here we’ll get started on our West Coast tour, driving south along the Oregon and California coasts visiting retail shops, surfing and offering board demos wherever possible.
We’ll also be planning some events for all of our Home Grown kit builders in the area. It will be good to finally meet everyone that we’ve been in touch with, helping them move their board projects toward completion. If you’re going to be around the best surf spots along the West coast in mid-October, give us a holler.
Then we’ll make our way to the Sacred Craft Consumer Surfboard Expo on Oct 13th and 14th at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego. Grain is proud to have a booth at this event alongside some of the greatest surfboard craftspeople in the business. We’ll be at the show to display our custom wooden surfboards and Home Grown kits, as well as new Grain apparel.
