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.
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.
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.
History and heritage. Brilliantly covers all aspects of surfing culture since the beginning.
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. 😎
