Surf World needs wave of volunteers

Surf World needs more members.
Surf World needs more members.

SURF World has to be seen to be believed.

The surfing museum run by volunteers is a veritable gold mine of surfing memorabilia.

And those who run it do it out of a love of surfing.

Founded by Mal Sutherland and Karl Tanner, the idea came about when they and others decided to let the public see the collections they had.

Mal had a collection of photos and memorabilia and Karl had a seemingly endless collection of surfboards, each with a story.

There are now over 150 boards on display at the Currumbin museum, with some dating back to the early 1900s.

The museum is amazing, with interactive displays and donations from famous surf icons and activities for school students.

But it doesn't run on an oily rag.

Volunteers give their time and energy on a daily basis to bless visitors with an eclectic collection of mind-boggling surfing-related items.

The museum is looking for new members.

This unique surf museum houses fascinating exhibits and extensive displays of surfing memorabilia including surfboards, artwork, movie posters and historic photos. W

hether you are a surfer who wants to discover more about surfing champions and legends or someone who wants to learn about the history of this ancient sport, then Surf World Gold Coast is the place to visit.

The museum is looking for new members.

To visit come to 1st Floor Honeyworld, 35 Tomewin St, Currumbin (opposite Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary).

To become a member contact the museum on (07) 5525 6380.
