Check it out Surfy peeps, our entry in the Sacred Craft Expression Session contest thingy, The Jelly Egg, won the popular vote for coolest board (or something like that, I’m still unclear on how the whole thing went down). We won a $1000 gift certificate to HANSEN SURFBOARDS as well as a “DESIGN FORUM” feature in SURFER magazine. Not too shabby!
The 6’2″ Jelly Quad Egg was shaped by underground guru shaper Gary Hanel out of Leucadia, CA. It features removable bamboo fins handmade by Marlin Bacon of 101 Fin Co fame, the Lokbox fin system, and a really trippy airbrush tribute to our pelagic jelly friends by Peter St Pierre.
All the boards entered in the Expression Session will also be on display/silent auction at Hansens Boardroom in Encinitas.
The boards in the silent auction are by Matt Biolos, Danny Hess, Craig Hollingsworth, Dave Daum, Stu Kenson, Ron House and us. The winning board of the silent auction gets $1000 to give to the charity of their choice. Moonlight Glassing’s charity is Smile Train, a group that provides surgeries to kids with cleft palates.
If you want to bid on any of the boards you have to visit Hansens in person. I’ll find out if there is going to be any online bidding for those not in San Diego county.
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR THE GH/MOONLIGHT JELLY QUAD, WE ARE SUPER DUPER STOKED!
Also, big thanks to the crew at ReviewSurfboards.com for organizing the Expression Session, building all the racks, standing at the booth all day Saturday and Sunday and counting all the ballots.
