Wow, we're finally coming down after several weeks of pure madness. Would it be too much to say that this was the best Surf Re-Evolution yet? 400 people joined us this year to celebrate the hand-made craft with all sorts of hands-on experiences from wax making to screen printing, wood burning to spokeshaving. Everyone was walking around with arms full of miniature surfboards and handplanes they whittled and sanded themselves, posters that they screen or block printed, surfboards they made, and more. The music was tight, the presentations were informative, the movies were entertaining and the bonfire was big, but under control (if you were here last year, you know what we're talking about). We even had a full size surfboard being carved from stone... talk about re-evolving. And if the burrito line was any indication, this year's event was busting at the seams.
We want to take a minute to thank all of our vendors, friends and family for helping to make this one great. So many of you came out to volunteer to park cars, sell t-shirts, work the gate, set up chairs... we just couldn't do it without all of your help. We also need to thank those of you came from so far with cars packed full of materials to keep people busy working with their hands. Randy Budd, Joe Hodnicki and Sharing the Stoke, Arianna Photopoulos, the Fippengers and their cotton candy machine, Randy Gaetano, Jimbos Surf Wax, Vida Verde, Flat Bread, Obaddiah Bourne Buell, PowderJet Snowboards, Dogfish Head Craft Brew and Smuttynose Brewing Company, New England Surf Company, Heather the popcorn lady, Shawn Vecchione from Vec Surfboards, Jon Wegener, the bands Tiger Belly and Pressures On, and Pierce Kavanagh and Cyrus Sutton for providing the films, this event is only a success because of your contributions. Thank you all so much.
