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
History and heritage. Brilliantly covers all aspects of surfing culture since the beginning.
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!
Great place to get some info about surfing hardware and software ;-). Quite entertaining boards letters.
Not that into surfing but the museum is really interesting and clearly thoughtfully curated.
Awesome display. So many memories from years past. Recommend highly
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.
