GET YOUR GROOVE ON AT AVALON. BOARDS, BANDS, TALKING STORY AT AVALON BOWLING CLUB & DUNBAR PARK SUNDAY APRIL 9th 2017. 9am - 5pm
It will be a gathering of the tribe to talk about and celebrate the rich history of surfboards and surf culture.
Board collectors will have an opportunity to admire a massive collection of rare boards including wooden tooth picks from the 1930s, Midget Farrelly’s personal riders, Hawaiian big wave guns, 70s single fins and twin fins right through to 80s thrusters, quads and Lazor Zaps.
You can make a deal to sell or acquire a board with other collectors, or find out an approximate value on that twin fin in the back shed, with one of the expert appraisers at the event.
If you’re not easily seduced by the site of vintage decals and iconic sprays there will be a host of other events taking place. Doyennes of the surf media, Nick Carroll, Stu Nettle and Phil Jarratt will be giving talks, while a separate stage will be dedicated to surf films.
A host of the country’s best contemporary shapers will be on hand to display their products and discuss all things design. Meanwhile a further 50 stalls will showcase the best of the Northern Beaches. Local photographers, local artists, local clothing and accessories stalls. Coffee, food, craft beer and wine.
Cap the whole fiberglass and foam party off with live bands, and it promises to be a surf festival for the ages. Grab a board and get down to Avalon on April 9.
