Sacred Craft this weekend in San Diego, it's gonna be a blast!!!

Here we are again, gearing up for another Sacred Craft show. This weekend August 14 & 15 we will be at the Sail Terrace Hall at the San Diego Convention Center. In case you're not aware, Sacred Craft is running in conjunction with ASR. Although ASR isn’t open to the public, the Sacred Craft is! It should be even more cranking with a large overflow crowd from ASR. This Consumer surfboard expo is marking the 30-year anniversary of the legendary Australian's revolutionary Thruster design. Sacred Craft and the entire surfboard industry will honor Simon Anderson and the 3-fin Thruster design during the Tribute to the Masters Shape-off presented by US Blanks .

That ain’t the only cool thing though, we’re going to be involved in a total of three glassing demos. We'll be working with Marko Foam and Stretch using Resin Research Epoxy . Also we will be assisting in a vacuum bagging demo with Entropy Bio Resins. Just a heads up, the demo you don't wanna miss will be on Saturday August 14 at 1:30p.m. (all glassing demos will be held at the Show Floor, aisle 100). Greg Loehr of Resin Research Epoxy will be glassing up a Stamps Quad Surfboard that we will be raffling off…..for FREE!! That’s not it, the board will come with a FREE set of Stamps signature quad fins by Future Fins !!! Holy crap we are jealous cause we can’t win, but you can! All you have to do is show up to the demo early and fill out a ticket, that’s it. If glassing isn’t your thing, check out the schedule, I’m sure you can find something that will make it worth the $10 entry fee. You can find us in BOOTH #606Tribute to the Masters Shaping Booth .

Future Fins new TechFlex Series, check em out they're red hot!!!

Take your surfing beyond glass-ons with Future Fins next progression. TechFlex was designed to stiffen up the fin in the right places with strategically placed carbon in the base and the tip. This activates flex in the middle of the fin, creating maximum lift for those who prefer flatsided fins. The TechFlex is perfect for the experienced surfers with a powerful approach or any level surfer in powerful waves.

Simpo going back to back at the US Open on Future Fins

These fins are stiffer than RTM Honeycomb and Blackstix, but softer than Fiberglass. They are more responsive than Honeycomb and are great for harnessing power. The TechFlex Series have a natural feel for a controlled ride and predictable release for high performance surfing. If you're used to riding Glass-ons then the TechFlex Series is a perfect transition to the high performance world of Future Fins.
