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.

Always worth a visit while in Torquay. It really helps to understand how surfing is really entrenched in the Australian culture and history, especially in this specific region.
Love this museum! Small but everyrhing about australian surfing you can find here!!!
What a gem in Torquay! Great place to learn about the history of the Sport, showcasing how the surfboard design evolved over the years. They have few kids activities - balance the surfboard, decorate chalk surfboards, kinetic sand pits and a cool green-screen photo booth. Definitely worth checking out on a cold day!
When in Torquay, the home to world famous surf location, Bells beach, a must see, is the iconic Australian National Surf Museum. With a vast selection of surfing memorabilia from the early board styles, through to the latest design shapes, it traces the history of surfing in infinate detail, with the aid of classic movie footage, plus a myriad tactile, hands on items from the past, to capture the imagination of young and old alike. 😎
