One of the crowd favourites each year at the Sustainable Coastlines Annual Ball is the auction for a custom made surfboard with graphic inlay from Shapers Inc.
In 2015, Sitka was fortunate to have the opportunity to create a wonderful board with Shapers Inc for the Lloyd family; beginner surfers, beach lovers, and fantastic supporters of Sustainable Coastlines.
