Rob Machado and Pat O'Connell Shape a surfboard at Sacred Craft!
Pro surfers Rob Machado and Pat O'Connell came out to the Sacred Craft Show to shape a surfboard in front of hundreds of people. The two surfers/shapers were mic'ed up and placed inside a fishbowl type shaping bay for everyone to watch and listen. Machado shaped a Channel Island stub and O'Connell shaped a Timmy Patterson style thruster. It was fun to watch these guys handle the tools and blanks and hear what they had to say during the shaping process. A good time was had by all.
