HOME MADE: Surfing In Tasmania

Explore how surfing has been shaped by our coast-line, our native timbers and our wild weather - from 1930s surfing picnics to passionate board shapers, long hikes to a favourite spot or a big-wave rider dwarfed by a towering wave!

Using clothing, awesome photographs, the stories of those who were there making it happen, as well as showing off some beautiful surfboards, this exhibition explores Tasmania’s unique surfing culture.

This is a touring exhibition from the Maritime Museum of Tasmania. For more information you can visit their website.
