Intending to create a destination for lovers of the ocean blue, wood surfboard builder Grain Surfboards has joined with independent surf media innovator KorduroyTV to create “Surf Re-Evolution”. Their goal – to help surf industry standouts, home board builders and others to share and discover new ways to be connected to the world of surfboard building.
Grain has selected a group of innovators, shapers and forward thinkers from around the globe to be part of the day as their special guests. Everyone involved will be sharing thier 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 the Grain Surfboards headquarters 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, Grain has partnered with two of their 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.
