Do you love surfing on the beautiful Gold Coast? If yes, do you know the region's surf heritage? If not, then it's time to step into the Surf World. Head over to Currumbin and visit Queensland's sole surfing museum.
Surf World Gold Coast exhibits an extensive collection of over 150 surfboards from every era. Here you will not only witness the evolution of design from 1930s to present but also some motorised and experimental surfboards designs. In fact, the Surf World just added a new surfboard in their collection early this year. The museum is now the permanent home of Australia’s first Caballito de Totora.
The Caballito de Totora is a Peruvian reed board. Huevito Ucanan, the King of the Caballito and 500th Moche descendant constructed the reed board in the country and also demonstrated the ancient art of Caballito surfing. This type of surfing dates back 5,000 years ago to the Moche Civilization pre Inca. When you visit Surf World Gold Coast, you will get the chance to witness this amazing reed board.
Besides these, the museum also features an amazing collection of photographs showing the early surf scenes, iconic images and surfing champions. This includes contemporary art works, album covers, posters of surf movies and signed memorabilia.
