Surf Craft – Design And The Culture Of Board Riding

Attention all Southern California surfers: today is the last day to catch Surf Craft exhibition at the Mingei International Museum in San Diego. People have made surfboards for centuries. Standing alone, these boards are often striking examples of functional design. Together, they tell a compelling story about the evolution of an important American art form. Traditional craft, cutting-edge engineering and minimalist art converge in this exhibition devoted to surfboards built from the late 1940s to the present day. If you missed the show, don’t fret, you can still keep this piece of history for yourself with the book by Richard Kenvin, which is filled with beautiful shots of the iconic surfboards that have defined generations.
