The Duct Tape Festival

This year, the all-inclusive beach celebration honoring innovation, creativity and craftsmanship in surf culture is back.

The Duct Tape Festival, happening in July and hosted in Cape Town, South Africa, will feature four internationally renowned surfer/shapers to present a library of their own hand-shaped custom surfboards to share with the public and with local NGO JUJU Surf Club and their community. The event removes the barrier between athlete and spectator providing attendees the chance to engage directly with athletes through surfing, art, music and a sharing of ideas.

Vans Joel Tudor Duct Tape invitational contests create a unique festival atmosphere for today’s most progressive longboarding icons.

The Duct Tape Invitational contest series represents the vision of two-time ASP world longboarding champion Joel Tudor to create a longboard event platform that showcases style and creativity through traditional logging.
