We feel so fortunate to be able to build boards in such a beautiful place everyday that we love to share it. That's why we love throwing parties, offering classes and premiering some of the best surf films to be released. Fall is undoubtedly the best season in the New England, it's the payoff for putting up with the crowds, heat and flatness of summer.
So, in an an effort to top our fall parties of the past, we're teaming up with Korduroy.TV to present, Surf Re-Evolution, a day of sun, surf, art and music, Saturday September 10th 2011
We've selected a group of innovators, shapers and forward thinkers to be part of the day as our guests and exhibitors. Everyone involved will be sharing their craft either in the water, back at the Grain shop on a farm in York, Maine, on the walls of a hay barn-turned-art-gallery, or during the festivities throughout the evening.
The event will take place at our shop nestled in the farmlands of rural Maine and at nearby Long Sands Beach.
Following a day at the beach with shapers, demo-boards, and sun, the soon-to-be released “Under the Sun” – a 16mm surf film – and “Manufacturing Stoke” – a film looking at sustainability in the surf industry – will be premiered along with a couple of hand-selected KorduroyTV shorts.
An art show curated by Corduroy Gallery and housed in the hay barn will feature artists that depict and revere waves and the sea.
As a bonus to the festival, we have partnered with two specials guests to create two new class offerings – an Alaia class with Jon Wegener during the days leading up to the event, and a one-day handplane class with Cyrus Sutton the day after. For more information and to sign up for these classes, visit Grain’s 2011 Class Schedule.
