2015 Board Room Show Review

Donald Brink

It was a fantastic Boardroom Show again this year

Thank you to all the old friends who stopped by the booth to share stoked stories and high fives. The amazing conversations around thoughts and theories included in the boards and more with so many people were an absolute joy. 

A high-light was the many new surfers who came by to ask questions and add insight to some recent articles, videos and materials I have been sharing. The flow of information and motivations is so good when there are real discussions around true value and the cause for actual effect.

Fun little waves were on offer for the demo day on Sunday morning, allowing for the sliding of the huge variety of crafts on offer. From the New Fire Wire "Cornice" to a Martin Shapes 10' finless Hot Curl  and a little bonzer from Wax Surf co in NY I certainly enjoyed the waters.

Congratulation to Maurice Cole and Etech for winning best of show in the sole Sustainable board category this year. I am so stoked to have received an honorable mention and blue ribbon for my entry and elite judging panel are all knowledgeable and respected in their abilities to assess. 

School team Groms visit the Exhibition

Stoked to show a couple of the middle school groms around the exhibit and answer a few questions from the young and inquiring minds. 

When I get to do things like this this I imagine one defining thing they might remember from the day and cover that from as many angles that seem sensible. One concept could be remembered whist many never will. 

We discussed the value of; imagination to design to empowered vision. 

The necessity of design in society is real.
