Damn, more than a month since an update. Our apologies, but it's been a really wild month and it's peaking this weekend in Del Mar with the Sacred Craft Surfboard Show. We, along with a slew of other surfboard makers of all styles and flavors, will be there proudly displaying our fine product. There'll be something for everyone, and that's just our booth. E1 & E2 is where we're at, and the space will also hold Jon Wegener's outstanding range of alaias and finless sliders, Carl Ekstrom and his super future shapes, the shredders from Mick Mackie and a full new range of Hydrodynamica Test Pilot Series boards. (There's footage of some these prototypes being ripped over on the Hydrodynamica blog.) Better yet, you can try demo boards for yourself. 'll be at the official demo, Saturday 7am at 15th St Del Mar, as well as an unofficial one Suday 8am. Alaias, flextails and mini Sims will there to try. All quality, all weekend- come on by and say hello if you're in the area, check back to the blog if not as we'll have a gang of board pictures to post next week.

You know it'll be amazing. Wegener is bringing planks, Eli is bringing boards, Ando will have fine threads, there will be new Swift shirts, there will be some epic new designs from the Hydrodynamica Test Pilot Series (and we'll be taking orders). Joe has been shaping some new stuff in the last few weeks that really will astound and amaze, and of course the lovely Mary will provide lumpia. September is great.

Apologies for the mushy pace of posts, but that's summer for you. (Especially when there's a bit of swell) There's work getting done though, and Joe has been playing with a few new variations on the designs that will hopefully be ready for a grand unveiling at the upcoming Swift Movement 'Goin' Off' blowout party, tenatively scheduled for Sept 10 and 11 at the Barnyard in lovely downtown San Diego. More on that as we get it dialed in and our boy Phil works his graphics magic. We still have t-shirts too, so if you want to proudly state your appreciation for progressive surfboard design (in easy wearing cotton, several colors), we're ready to help.

Photo lifted from Cher Pendarvis- thanks!
A recent Saturday night saw the Surfing Heritage Foundation in San Clemente hosting an event for a new film on shaping they've been involved in, and Joe Bauguess happily provided them with a really nice example of what shaping is all about in this modern era. He was displayed there with sn interesting range of boards for sure, Ekstrom, Pendo and Meyerhoffer were all represented, to say nothing of the collection the foundation has going on. All going well there will be a film with Joe actually in it and shaping doing the rounds by the end of the year.

This time it's the Brennan's from the chilly North East. They rock a serious selection of home made wood along with some post modern planning hulls, and ride the hell out of them. Extra points for the Casper coffin. SoCal friends come to Ebb & Flow, the new Andy Davis store in Cardiff at 111 Chesterfield Rd (across from Patagonia) which is having an opening party complete with RK showing some newly minted Hydrodynamica footage.

So while the coast of CA was hit by the best swell in months on a beautiful sunny weekend, we sat amid the hordes at Huntington and showed off boards we were absolutely dying to get out in the water! Actually, it wasn't all that bad- the crods were largely nonsurfers which was a bit odd, but we met plenty of cool folks and between our boards and Jon Wegener's finless planks we drew some interested and/or bewildered visitors. Hit of the show was undoubtedly the fresh out of the glass shop next gen Simster- Joe has these things dialed in really hard and they were blowing a few minds 'Is that some sort of kneeboard?' No friend, you stand up and GO! Joe made a Saturday afternoon personal appearance which was pretty bonus, and fun was had. Next full blown Sacred Craft is 10/10/09 and we'll be there.
