Come Ride Surfboards From Past STAB Projects

Camp Shred is surfing’s Coachella — except it’s free.

For the weekend of March 4th/5th, Camp Shred will be setting up their yearly festival of surf culture at San Elijo Campgrounds in Cardiff — and we’ll be there. 

Between the thousands of surfboards, wetsuits, and surf accessories available for free demo, along with a variety of live music, surf culture A-listers, and locally brewed beverages, they can lay genuine claim to being the largest surf demo in the world.

Though the weekend is open to everyone free of charge, there has been a notably long line in years past.

This year, our Stab Premium members will be able to skip the inevitable line, and collect their demo cards — plus a Stab x Camp Shred tote — at our Stab Booth. 

Premium members can pre-register for the weekend here.

We’ll be posted up with a handful of boards from our past projects, likely including those from recent Electric Acid Surfboard Test and Stab In The Dark films. Rumor has it we may even be bringing a few unseen boards from Italo’s upcoming SITD.
