WindanSea Exhibition

An outstanding exhibition which explained the roots of WindanSea from the USA through to the Sunshine Coast club, still operating today.

A huge thank you to Karen Neilson for putting it all together along with our president Rob Ryan, but without the help of Andy Mac, Paul Daly and Mal Chalmers the display would have been much smaller. These guys carry the WindanSea blood in their veins and still have such a passion for their time in the club it is palpable. The night went off extremely well with our volunteers always up to the task!

A special mention to Lawrie Jarman, who travelled down from the Sunshine coast to loan us the Ma & Pa Bendall trophy for the exhibition. The panel of Paul Neilson, Andy Mac, Paul Daly, Mal Chalmers and Lawrie Jarman was a blast with some funny stories and a historical journey. Then there was Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew who got the crowd belly laughing with his stories. Again, thank you to all those who put in the effort to make another fun night at Surf World..
