100 years of surfing in Australia



In 1914, Duke Kahanamoku the legendary Hawaiian surfer and Olympic swimmer, visited Australia and gave surfing displays up the East Coast of Australia.

While it probably wasn’t the first time a surfboard had been ridden in Australia, it is generally regarded as the birth of surfing in Australia. That summer of 1914/15 was the start of ‘a great wave of oceanic obsession’ that has continued to grow in Australia.

Such a historic surfing year is the perfect time to visit nearby Surf World museum on the Gold Coast.
View extensive displays and exhibits of surfing memorabilia including surfboards, historic photos and more!

Surf World Gold Coast is located at 35 Tomewin Street, Currumbin.
