A preview showing of the artistically rendered surfboards that will be auctioned in November’s Morro Bay Surfboard Art Festival will be held today.

The free event will be held from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Forever Stoked Gallery, 1164 Quintana Road in Morro Bay.

The Surfboard Art Festival will run Nov. 1-28 and include 30 pieces of surfboard art displayed at sponsoring businesses around the city.

Local businesses paid $250 to sponsor a board; proceeds will be split between the Morro Bay in Bloom and Project Surf Camp nonprofits.

The boards will be auctioned on Nov. 29 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Fish Bonez Restaurant at 725 Embarcadero in Morro Bay. Artists will receive 80 percent of auction proceeds. The rest will be split between the two nonprofits.
