The shop's been humming the last few days primping for what we hope will be a great time on Saturday. Besides all the interesting invited guests we've been blogging about, we're going to make sure there's plenty of fun to be had once we abandon the beach and head back to the farm. Here's the full schedule.
We lined up three separate friends with good hearts and the whimsical foresight to own carnival carts that serve up popcorn, cotton candy and shave ice. Eat 'til you're sick.
The surfers that run Flatbread Pizza will be here with their mobile pizza rig to serve really, really good pies that are a shop favorite. Salivation is in order.
Amazing Dogfish Head brews will be served to those so inclined and of legal age until there's only foam to be found.
Tyler Briggs, the engine behind Corduroy Gallery has curated a cool art show in the hay barn featuring favorite artists that share with all of us a deep love and connection to the sea and the waves.
The soundtrack for the day will be provided by Speed of Sand, which sounds like the 60's, but feels like now.
Plus bring along some old gear that needs a little extra something, and you can get an embroidered Grain Patch (same as on our truckers) sewn on by our pal Jenny who's coming with a sewing machine, some thread and a bright smile. Bring hats, clothes, courier bags, back packs, board bags, canvas beach/shopping bags - any old thing you got that could use a facelift.
AND we'll be showing not one, but two great films - "Under the Sun" shot by the inspiring Cyrus Sutton with ancient 16mm cameras, and the East Coast premier of the "documentary with surfing" called "Manufacturing Stoke” by Pierce Kavanagh. Both of those guys will be here to introduce their films and chat with aspiring filmmakers.
If you can find a way to take full advantage of all that fun, AND still have time to talk with guys like Ed Lewis and Mark Marchesi - hand plane makers from opposite sides of the country, you deserve an award. See you there!
