Wooden Surfboard Day at Currumbin

Posted in: Art, News, Surfboard, Wooden Surfboards & Alias by Richard Harvey on August 8, 2012

Grant Newby has been organizing both the Fish Fry and the Wooden Surfboard Day for a few years now.

This year there were boards coming from a wood working angle and boards from shapers and everything in between.

My favorites were a beautiful board from Paul Joske, built from a paulownia tree that he planted the seed about 10 years ago and a Hot Curl replica, shaped by Old mate John Mantle, built from the beer vats of the old demolished Reschs Brewery in Sydney

Also had a few of my boards and art pieces on show.

Decided to take some boards that were a combination of timber work added to foam.

Great day, great event.
