Surfers and board shapers from around the country flocked to York, Maine, this weekend for the sixth annual Surf Re-Evolution event. Presented by Grain Surfboards, the festival began with a board demo at Long Sands Beach on Saturday morning, Sept. 24, and continued with an afternoon of music, art, films, presentations, demonstrations, food, beverages, and a gear swap at the Grain farm. New Hampshire-based photographer and surfer Andrew Rebeiro was on hand to capture some of the sights.
