Cardiff Classic and Green Fair

We spent last weekend at the Cardiff Classic and Green Fair. The waves were good the whole time, the event was attended by a lot of people, and the info booths were inspiring. Our booth was practically on the rocks in front of the surf and across from the stage where really good music was live from morning to evening. The event is put together by Cardiff 101 and its purpose is to inform the public to be conscious about the environment and have fun. We must thank Betty Steele for inviting us to be a part of the event and her hard work putting together the event along with the rest of Cardiff 101. I believe these events are important, and should happen often. If people are around the message all the time it sinks in. For those who remember, nobody wore seat belts in the 70's. The seat belt campaign was heavy for a while. Now almost everyone wheres a seat belt. One feels naked with out one in a car. This is the Marko recycled foam blank glassed with Super sap bio resin from Entropy resin. The board came out super light and felt great. It was super buoyant and was incredibly fast. I brought it down , waxed it up, and let people demo it. People really liked the board and what it was made of, and all who rode it were stoked. Unfortunately, the board did not come home with me. Fortunately, Taylor Steele has it now. Without much alaia experience, he paddled out and got some really nice long rides and wanted a board.

You tell me.

Flat Stanley flew in from Seattle for the event.

Wood, bio, and recycled boards work insane. All these products will get even better if people support manufacturers who use ''greener materials.''

  1. Absolutely wonderful! I love the dual purpose alaia bags: They protect your alaia while in transport and they keep you warm and incognito while on the beach. If Flat Stanley can recognize the importance of being green, how much more should we?

  2. Awesome! The recycled foam and bio resin sounds very promising. I hope you continue to use them, Jon - I think I know what my next Bluegill will be made our of!
