(Alisa Viejo, Calif.)– JANUARY 26th, 2015: Vissla will support the soulful crew at Grain Surfboards this spring on the “Right Coast Road Trip: Home Schooling the Atlantic Seaboard,” a series of six wooden board-building classes open to the public.
Vissla is an appael brand that represents creative freedom, a forward-thinking philosophy, and a generation of creators and innovators that embrace the modern do-it-yourself attitude within surf culture, performance surfing, and craftsmanship. Their relationship with Grain Surfboards is a manifestation of their surf-everything and ride-anything mentality. Vissla creators and innovators will look to join up for board building classes, handplane workshops and surf sessions throughout the tour.
Grain has brought their board building classes to the West Coast for several years. This will be their first series of mobile workshops on the Atlantic coast.
“Since the beginning, Vissla has always felt that Grain Surfboards was a perfect match for its Creators and Innovators program so we are really excited to partner with Grain for their first East Coast Tour and look forward to working with them along the West Coast in the future, says Vince De La Pena, Vissla’s VP of Marketing, “Grain truly has a DIY philosophy carved into their core and we couldn’t be happier to help spread their word!”
Each venue represents regional East Coast surf culture and heritage from New Jersey to Florida. For more on the tour head to: http://vss.la/vissla-grain-tour
