The Duct Tape Festival

A unique, all-inclusive beach celebration honoring innovation, creativity and craftsmanship in surf culture.

The Duct Tape Festival features four internationally renowned surfer/shapers to present a library of their own hand-shaped custom surfboards to share with the public and live permanently at the local core surf shop. The event removes the barrier between athlete and spectator providing attendees the chance to engage directly with athletes through surfing, art, music and a sharing of ideas.
