3rd Annual Kona Board Swap

Bored of Your Board? Kona Surf Company’s Board-Swap Event is Here for You!

Wildwood – It’s that time of the year again, when wetsuits are near shed, and you probably need a little bit more float to address those summer flat-spells. Have some of your older boards started to collect dust in the garage? Don’t let those old sticks in your quiver just sit there, and mark your calendars for this year’s Board-Swap Event at Kona Surf Company! From skateboards to surfboards, trade it in something old, for something new or used!

This year’s 3rd Annual Board-Swap Event is unlike any other. Through the addition of new equipment and designs, Kona Surf Company has created a “Mecca” for Surfboard manufacturing in the State of New Jersey. The APS-3000 (Gen.5 Machine) – Kona’s new state-of-the-art board-shaping machine, will make its debut on July 1st at Kona Surf Company HQ for this year’s Board-Swap Event. We will be running demos of the machine for the event duration.

Art, Music, Giveaways and surf culture unite on Sunday, July 1st, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Kona Board House, 160 W Rio Grande Avenue, Wildwood, NJ 08260. Men and Women in the surfing and skating community can bring a surfboard, longboard or skateboard over to the shop to be traded with other boards on display for the same intended purpose. At the event, attendees will enjoy live music by Stellar Mojo, giveaways, live painting, board-shaping demos, and store-wide sales on clothing, surfboards, and equipment. No limit on the amount of boards you can bring, and no limit on the amount of trades you can make. No fees are required, but we only ask that you Follow the Waves over to the Board House, and bring your stoke!

“We are stoked to have the APS-3000 here for this year’s Board-Swap,” said Chris Sciarra, partner owner of Kona Surf Company. “It has been a long wait and a lot of hard work, but I believe we are currently witnessing some game changing events here at Kona HQ, and I personally am excited to showcase some of these changes at this year’s Board-Swap,” said Chris.
