The event ran from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Solar Shack parking lot at 44 Kainehe St., where Rarick and Fragale were on hand to share their rare, collectable surfboards and decades of knowledge.
The event was free and ran on “pure stoke,” by a group of friends who all share passion for surfing, crafting boards and sharing knowledge and history with the community.
There was also organic coffee and food available for purchase at the event.
