Lots of surfing memorabilia that goes back to the beginning of the sport in Australia. A focus on some of the Aussie greats of the sport - both men and women. Really enjoyed the time I spent here.

Surfing History
Jun. 2017 • Friends
I have visited Surf World several times over the years. I am an avid surfer who loves the history of this sport. There are always new items on display not that it matters as I really enjoy looking at some of the same items again and again.

Worth a visit if you love surfing

Surf world is an interesting display of the history of surfing. We had entry as a freeby from the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. The displays are well set up with video supporting many of the displays of old surf board and surfing paraphernalia.
Even if you aren't into surfing, Surf World provides a glimpse into Australia's past and its beach culture.
Surprise exhibit was an amazing wall of ukuleles - very apt

Wasn't really expecting to find this interesting but it was fascinating. Only a small place, staff friendly. We had free entry on the back of another attraction otherwise $10 I think. No air con inside so was very warm. If you are interested in surfing you would definitely enjoy.

Interesting museum
Apr. 2016 • Family
Was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed looking through the museum. We came late in the day and bargained our way in. Not a great one for the kids, but thoroughly enjoyable for the adults. A great way to see some of Australia's iconic history.

Interesting displays, cheap and interested staff

Surf World explains it all. Plenty of historical surf boards and paraphernalia.
Also a few other items related to surf culture, such as a ukulele display.
There is also a video on Kelly Slater.

Spent around an hour looking around at the different board sizes and shapes.
Not a surfer but found it all quite interesting.
The staff were very welcoming also.

Cheap as chips to enter (not the usually expensive entry you find on the coast).
Great way to fill in a morning.

Surf World, more than a museum!
Aug. 2015 • Couples
Staffed by ocean going volunteers, this is a fantastic attraction for everyone, surfer or not. Much of our history is based around the sea and Surf World really captures the surfing side brilliantly. There's one of the best collections of historical surf craft on the planet on display, along with in-depth explanations of each. Frequent talks, movies and event nights are always worth a visit too. On a daily basis, you can pretty much see the history of Australian surfing and surfers in this one place. Good fun. The volunteers are all very knowledgeable as well-ask your questions.

If you're into surfing and would like a sample of the surf culture, stop here. There are lots of boards to view as you wander through and take in some surf history.

As a surf journalist I love surf history. This place exhibits amazing historic boards and equipment. But unfortunately the staff doesn't seem to now much about them. It feels like you are on your own.
