Sacred Craft Santa Cruz

Sacred Craft pics , this Andreini balsa gun was a show favorite.

I like Gene Coppers new speed shape, thin rails and a hull into a chine concave tail , old but new.


The man , Doug Haut , Craftsman, Stylemaster and all around good guy, the tribute to Doug came out really nice , Santa Cruz, Rich Novack and Wingnut did a nice job putting this together.

Brian , rappin down about the Gee Bee model.

Marc's gun , the burl wood nose block and fin were so sweet.

The gun up top and Rich Novack's Hotcurl on the bottom, Marc milled and glued up the hotcurl from a old redwood water tank and Jeff Canham did the letters , Rich's name in hawaiian. This one was just varnished, no glass.

Andreini with a bonzer a guy brought by that he shaped in 75 or 76 . I remembered working on this board on the bottom before it was glossed I india inked Campbell brothers bonzer design on the bottom and I mispelled DESIGN, Marc's brother Pete said hey KP watch out what you take credit for ! funny .

Josh's, Anderson slide and glide was a close 2nd for best in show.

Fun show and a nice job by the Santa Cruz guys .
