Live Surfboard Shaping

A unique feature of the museum is our working shaping bay, where you can watch international shaper Eiji Shiomoto shape boards from traditional malibus to high performance shortboards. If he’s not in action, you can still view Eiji’s latest projects, templates, equipment and tools of the trade.

    review rating 5  We loved it. It's a small museum but full of history. I really recommend going and spending a couple of hours watching all the surf boards, surf suites, etc reading the history behind each item.
