West Oz Vintage Surfboard Swap Meet

This is the third year the Swap Meet has run and the stoke it generates is amazing!

It keeps getting bigger every year. Last year we had 500 boards on display and this year there'll be even more.

The free event provides an opportunity for collectors to display vintage surfboards to trade or sell, but also to show and discuss classic examples of surfboard evolution and history with like-minded enthusiasts.

The event is also a lesson in the history of Western Australian surfboard shaping. This year we have Phil Usher, Nev, and Bruce Smith from Odyssey Surfboards reuniting and talking story from the shaping room. The WA Surf Gallery from Aravina Estate will also pay tribute with a photographic exhibition of the Odyssey factory that will later continue at their gallery in the South West. If you have an Odyssey surfboard shaped by these legends, bring it down on the day - they will be stoked to see it!

The Surf Gallery is providing a $500 voucher for restoration work to the 'Best Exhibitor' at the Swap Meet. The 'Best Board in Show' will take home a Surf Gallery promo pack (T-shirt, cap, car stickers, stubbie holder and two free entries to the gallery), valued at $100.

Location: Under the trees at Perry Lakes Reserve, Floreat
Date: Sunday 23rd October 2022
Time: 10:00am - 2:00pm
What else? Get them out of the garage!
