History and culture of British Surfing

10th Feb
7:30pm
Join Charlie Spurr, Trustee to the Museum of British Surfing to discover the history and culture of surfing in North Devon

About this Event

Surfing has taken place on North Devon’s beaches since the early 1900s, and Braunton became a hub for the fledgling surfing industry in the 1960s and early ’70s with its position as a gateway to the beaches of Saunton, Croyde, Putsborough, Woolacombe and Westward Ho!

Braunton is now the home of the Museum of British Surfing.

This online event will be delivered via Zoom. After the presentation there will be a Q&A where you will have the chance to pose your questions to the speaker.
