Vans Duct Tape Surf Festival – a unique, all-inclusive one-day beach celebration honoring innovation, creativity, and craftsmanship in surf culture, taking place in Tofino this June 10th on Cox Bay.
The mission of the festival is to bring together an international collective of people inspired by surfing, and to celebrate progression and creativity in surf culture by engaging communities that thrive by the sea. And what better Canadian surf destination than the gorgeous west coast shores of Vancouver Island!
For its inaugural event, the Vans Duct Tape Festival welcomes four world renown surfers—Dane Reynolds, Tanner Gudauskas, Alex Knost, and Joel Tudor—to present a library of their own hand-shaped custom surf boards to share with the public. Led by these four influential surf icons, the all-day beach festival will feature educational sessions on board shaping, workshops on sustainability, interactive art and music exhibits hosted by the local community, and will highlight the best of Tofino’s rich landscape and organic living philosophy.
The Duct Tape Festival debuts in 2017 with a mission to bring together an international collective of people inspired by surfing and to celebrate progression and creativity in surf culture by engaging communities that thrive by the sea.
The inaugural Vans Duct Tape Invitational is held in partnership with Vans, Surfrider Foundation and the District of Tofino. It will run from 10 am to 3 pm at Cox Bay on June 10th.
