We're lucky to have Michele, a fashion merchandising college intern for the summer. She's had an action packed two weeks on the Big Island. We took a trip to Oahu for the day and got lots accomplished while we toured the whole island. We visited Global Creations, an Organik account on the North Shore. Next stop was the Free Surf Magazine office to pick up a box of magazines for the Green Room gallery (oops! I spilled the beans). Then, we stopped at Bret Surfboards at Sunset Beach to see the quiver for the Green Room (ooops! There we go again). Brett is a super rad shaper from the North Shore of Oahu. He handshapes surfboards for many of the world tour surfers. He's a great guy and the Green Room is an exclusive dealer for his boards. One the boards for the Green Room is a 5'8" fish which is perfect for summer and features recycled foam and is appropriately called Green Foam. Recycled foam scraps and shavings from shaping a handmade surfboard are recycled to make a new surfboard.
Here's the 5'8" fish with Green Foam getting glassed to be shipped the next day.
This is Ed's custom handshaped 5'10" Bret Surfboards diamond tail in the UV room to cure.
We settled up with the Bret to get the five boards shipped to Kona for the Saturday grand opening of the Green Room. Next stop is Kua'aina in Haleiwa for lunch. Now off to Whole Foods in Kahala to set up a window display. Whole Foods gave us a 3 panel screen to display our work of art.
Here's Michele taking charge of executing the window display with our beach theme with sea glass, shells, recycled rope, and posters.
40 minutes later and we have a finished display. Look how wonderful it looks.
I personally found the glass and rope at secret location on the Big Island.
Here's Michele and I with the finished Organik window display. Hope you get to see it in person at Whole Foods in Kahala Mall.
