This year’s Scrapin’ the Coast is now in the books, but we can’t stop thinking back on the great weekend we had at the show. Held annually at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center, the show drew crowds from all around as well as show trucks from as far as Miami, Florida, and beyond. This year the show fell on the weekend of June 24, 25, and 26 and was met with great weather and good times. Scrapin’ is known for their surfboard awards, and this year was no different, except for the Best of Show Car and Best of Show Truck. These were all metal, 3½-foot-tall tikis made by Robbie Azevedo at Pacific Coast Customs. The rest of the Best Of trophies were custom-painted skim boards and the First, Second, and Third Place club trophies were full-fledged custom-painted surfboards.
DJ Get Low was on hand providing beats all weekend and several food vendors were selling plenty of beverages as the temperature hovered around 95 degrees all weekend. Sponsors of this year’s event included: Budweiser, Allen Scion, Never Satisfied Customs, Kingpin Customs, Treasure Bay Hotel and Casino, Keef’s Rod and Customs, KIK Clothing, Hand Made Seat Company, Air-Zenith, and Memphis Audio among many others.
