Foamlust Press Release

14 March 2013

There is still love, mystery and romance in the art of making a surfboard. In a society that is obsessed with ipads, tablets and androids, and amongst global conglomerates consumed with performance indicators, time studies and growth modules, welcome to the world of the humble surfboard shaper. It’s a world where surfboard foam and dust gathers around your toes. It’s a world where every foam blank is meticulously shaped, glassed and sanded before becoming a surfboard. It’s a world where you spend time imagining how a board will glide across a wave before picking up a single tool.

Foamlust is an event that will unlock the mystery of surfboard shaping. There will be demonstrations from some of the best surfboard shapers in Australia. There’ll be a collection of vintage surfboards that tell the dreams of past years in the shaping bay, and the stories about them. There’ll be rare and interesting surfing books. There’ll be photo exhibitions from award-winning surf photographers. There’ll be surf movies and a special screening of Alby Falzon’s Morning of the Earth, rockin music from local band the Floozies, a licenced bar, and, because the event will coincide with the Margaret River Pro, there may even be a few famous faces in the crowd.

This is not JUST a surfing exhibition…..this is a surfing celebration.
