A vintage surfboard ‘road show’ and auction
Friday - July 20, 2007
Aloha, surfers and beachgoers! Passing the middle of summer is a hard pill to swallow, but hey, having waves to ride always makes it go down easier. This week has been better than last with consistent trades sun and surf. Next week goes into a bit of a lull so get it now. Or check this out ...
This Saturday the fourth Quiksilver Edition Vintage Surf Auction goes off at Blaisdell. This one promises more fun “outta the sun” than any other surf-related event. The offerings are insanely sweet ... with more for your surf library and memorabilia than you can shake a skeg at. Yes, there will be plenty of classic boards in all shapes and sizes from generations past ... and so much more.
On the “sets” you’ll see names such as Gerry Lopez, Barry Kanaiaupuni, Mark Richards, Larry Bertleman, John Severson, Tom Parrish, Tom Morey, Buzzy Trent, Dick Brewer, Greg Noll and many others.
By respecting the past we see more clearly how and why we ride what we ride today. We even get glimpses into our future.
On Friday (before the big auction day) Randy Rarick and the Vintage Crew will have what they’re calling an “antique road show.“This type of appraisal is one of the exciting additions this year and is absolutely free. Go down on Friday, July 20, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
You can bring in any and all surf related items for free appraisal and valuation by a panel of six experts on everything from surfboards, surf books, surf posters, surf art and any other Hawaii- or surf-related memorabilia. The top 10 items will then be placed as last-minute additions to the auction lineup!
Log on to HAWAIIANSURFAUCTION.COM and click into all the ‘sets’ of auction items…in there you’ll see some of the history and background of our prized possessions. Now you can go home with some ... and always be reminded why you’re a surfer.
We surfers tend to be a sentimental bunch especially when it comes to our favorite toys. Like the songs or bands you love in school ... they never lose their energetic charm.
They pull you back to an era of youth that so many long for. It’s a way of touching base with the core ... getting back to the basics.
Some of the cutting edge designs, developments and surf stuff of today will - if lucky - make it into the 2035 Hawaii Surf Vintage Auction. See you there - if we’re lucky!
