A rare opportunity to not just swap boards, but also mingle, meet and test ride your dream boards from some of the finest national and international surfboard shapers right at one of the most beautiful beaches in Oz, Wategos Beach.
Surf Swap Meet
Wategos Beach, Byron Bay
DATE & TIME
Sunday 26th Oct, 8 am – 4 pm
|The idea behind this Surf Swap Meet is quite basic, even old age, in that you can actually swap one thing for another and no money is exchanged. Although anyone is welcome to just browse, maybe test ride their surf craft of choice or even buy a unique second hand or new breed of salt enriched surf history.
SWAPPERS | SHAPERS | DEMOS | LIVE MUSIC | SURF
An amazing opportunity for surfers, shapers and collectors alike! Marvel at boards, exchange ideas, and maybe even birth something new. Hand pick or order your new surf craft right on the beach from featured national and international surfboard shapers. And whilst you are there, what shouldn’t miss for the perfect beach hangout day is live music. So, get enchanted by a fine selection of talented local acoustic musicians.
Bring your pre-loved or new surfboard/s, including vintage mals/logs, fishes, singles, finless, handplanes and shortboards, along with any unique, arty or quirky designs, to the Wategos beach grass area on Sunday morning 26th Oct 2014. Hunt down an authentic bargain, test ride your fav stick or stock up your quiver with something classic, rare or new!
Totally rare, and not just in our region, is the ability to mingle, admire and talk surf tech with a hand selected crew of highly skilled national and international surfboard shapers all in one spot right on the beach. Test ride a very broad variety of quiver that you might have only ever dreamt of and gain feedback right there and then.
