Stroll the Boardwalk to explore the evolution of surfboard designs and materials – from century-old solid timber historic boards, through hollow plywood “toothpicks”, balsa and fibreglass Malibu-style, to contemporary and futuristic composite construction craft.
WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
History of surfing, brilliant to see the names of yesteryear and the boards that were used in their quest for championships
Great place to get some info about surfing hardware and software ;-). Quite entertaining boards letters.
Awesome display. So many memories from years past. Recommend highly
