Surf Craft and Mingei Mind: Richard Kenvin and Carl Ekstrom

July 30, 2016
3pm

Surf Craft curator and surfer, surf historian, and filmmaker Richard Kenvin will discuss how this exhibition came to be, its connection to Mingei arts and crafts, and his Hydrodynamica Project. Hydrodynamica traces a history of modern board shapes that began with Bob Simmons' design concept of the hydrodynamic planing hull, in the 1940s. Shaping icon Carl Ekstrom, inventor of the asymmetrical board, will join Kenvin for this talk.
