¡IDNW5 2018!

It Doesn't Not Work V:
The Alternative Surf Craft Show

May 4th, 2018- Brooklyn, NY: CALLING ALL SURF CRAFT SHAPERS! The fifth annual It Doesn’t Not Work surfboard show’s call for submissions is now officially open! Bring out your most creative and boldest designs. The It Doesn’t Not Work Surfboard show is moving dates and location for 2018. The fifth installment of IDNW will take place September 14th-16th at the Rockaway Beach Surf Club in Rockaway Beach. After four years at Picture Farm Gallery, SMASH Productions & Picture Farm Productions are expanding the show to offer new opportunities for shapers and attendees to experience the craft of surfboard shaping. Live shaping demos and close proximity to the beach will allow participants to truly test out some of the creations.

It Doesn’t Not Work will be a weekend pop-up event filled with conversation, mind expansion, film screenings, prizes, and beer! The process of surf craft design is not one limited to the big machines of the surf industry, or solely belonging to the heralded masters of the craft, it is a living folk art on an equally democratic level. Join us in the continually evolving conversation between local craftsman and the sea… and the creations that relationship spawns.

Send us your designs: Submit your wildest and most experimental boards, alaias, handplanes, paipos and as-yet-to-be-named experiments for display. Extra points if you've built more than one, have revised the design and can show the evolution!

Submissions: Go to http://itdoesntnotwork.com/submission/ to submit your wave riding apparatus. Submissions end September 1st, 2018. Please include images of each entry and please be sure to include a description of the design.
