Events & Exhibitions

For the first time Surf World Gold Coast presents the Nikon Surf Photo of the Year and Surf Movie of the Year Awards. This exhibition showcases the finalist of this prestigious awards that recognises the best single surfing-themed photograph and film taken during 2015.

 

Surf World has welcomed a new addition to our collection – a board from Peru called the Caballito de Totora.

The caballito has been named the world’s oldest surfboard. Andy Mac lead a project of Peruvian surfers and fishermen to bring the reeds over from Peru.
