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.
WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
Stopped in on a weekend away. I was really impressed with the items in the collection and didn't realise surfing was such an old craft. I learned a lot about the history of surfing, the evolution of the boards and the technology that goes into making a great board. We spent about 1.5 hours in the museum but there us a 90 minute feature film that shows in the theatre, so allow more time if you want to watch the whole thing.
Wenn Surfing interessiert, dann ist dieses Museum ein Must, das Thema wird spannend präsentiert und mit Viedos untermalt
Well worth the few bucks to head in and see, fantastic service at the counter on the way in which sets the mood for the whole experience
Great place to go.
A must see in Torquay
Really well done, although the entry fee of ~$12.50 was a little steep I thought. If they don't have government funding they definitely deserve it
Great History of Surfing
Très bien mais je pense qu'il faut être fan de surf pour l'apprécier d'autant plus car il y a beaucoup de chose à lire et de références.
Absolutely awesome history on Australian surfing. Highly recommended!
