Shred Your Shape
The 12ve edition of the Cosmic Children Festival is proud to integrate and host for the second year in a row the “Shred Your Shape” contest presented by Vissla.
Next June 17th and 18th will take place this new category specially created to highlight the work of craftsmen and shapers, the heart of the surf industry. Shapers will show how they can perform with their own creatures. The Cosmic kids will host in Liencres a real gathering of the tribe, with a good selection of international shapers that will come and join us to share their knowledge to surf their boards, show the new trends and exchange ideas about shaping with their peers.
The comp will be divided into two different categories:
Invitational for Professional Shapers
Up to 32 international shapers invited by Vissla, who live from the manufacturing of custom boards.
Unlike the rest of the heats, expression sessions, tag teams and the real anti-comp philosophy of the Cosmic Children Festival, we decided to integrate this new format running like a normal comp, including a Great Final and 1.100 € of prize money for the pure stoke of the top 4 shapers:
1st place – 500 €
2nd place – 300 €
3rd place – 200 €
4th place – 100 €
2017’s edition will honor past Creators and Innovators, and pro-shapers are challenged to replicate and surf either a Mark Richards inspired twin fin or a Hot Buttered Terry Fitzgerald inspired Single Fin.
This category is just open to the first 16 surfers (per order of registration) who have shaped their own retro board (single fin or twinnie).
This year make sure you show us your best performance with retro-style boards and show your skills in and out of the water. You might be honered with a great trophey and you will represent the “do it your self” philosophy.
We really hope to see you there.
