History of the Modern Surfboat
History of the Modern Surfboat

The attached "History of the Modern Surfboat" has been very generously compiled by Bert Hunt, Life Member ASRL

You're now invited to read through the updated history of the modern surf boat. We hope you enjoy revisiting some of the wonderful memories of our past and present surfboat builders.

Bert adds: "This document hasn’t been researched to the point of total accuracy and isn’t meant to be the definitive compilation of the stages of surfboat manufacture. It is written with a view to inviting others to provide some of the detail to backfill some of the gaps. Apologies in advance to any boat builder missed or for any detail not correct, as this is an attempt to create a running history of our evolution and later versions will correct and record and add any missing pieces."




Surf Boat Trophies for all occasions

Want to thank a sweep, praise a sponsor, reward a crew or thank a representative from your club?

Mike Tamblyn's Surf Boat Trophies make surf boat trophies to cater to the many aspects of our great sport of surf rowing ranging from :
• A replica trophy to give to a sponsor on boat launching day
• A memento to the person honoured with their name on the new boat
• Appreciation from a crew to their sweep or coach or special individual
• Club presentation night for outstanding crews and perpetual trophies

All our trophies are made from selected Australian timber and materials. Each trophy is individually made to your requirements
