Once again we were blown away by the volume and quality of so many incredible entries for this year’s Vissla Add Color event. In the creative world of surfboard craftsmanship, shapers tend to get all the credit. This event celebrates the craftsmen and artists who turn those amazing shapes into the final objects of functional beauty that surfboards are. Every finalist was a winner but ultimately after much deliberation, Angie Samblotte won the honors with her beautiful art on a Campbell Brothers bronzer.


A heartfelt appreciation to Drew & Maria Brophy for graciously hosting, our judges for their insight, as well as to Gatos Tacos, 805 Beer, Ashland Seltzer, and, of course, to all our dedicated participants and finalists for your ongoing contributions to surf culture. Together, they created a celebration of creativity and craftsmanship, making this event a huge success.
