Noosa Surfing MuseumCreators & Innovators Night at the Museum presented by Vissla
Surfing is the foundation in which Noosa Heads is built.
It was Hayden Kenny in the mid to late 50’s while living in Maryborough decided to trek it down the coast in search of waves. You can only imagine the surprise on Kenny’s face when he pulled up to an empty Noosa lineup with corduroy lines as far as the eye could see.
Back in those days, surfers had to register their surf craft and it was the normal thing to do.
Nowadays, those pieces of craft are steeped in surfing history and folklore and remain in a dark shed out the back or covered in cobwebs under a farmhouse. The true value of these boards goes beyond dollars and cents, for a small minority of us, this is priceless gold and a collector’s item that belongs in a museum.
In April 2021, Noosa opened its first surfing museum wall to wall, ceiling to floor of old school surfboards from every decade since surfing was a thing…
Keith Grisman is the man behind the Surfing Museum and it’s his passion for surfing and everything collectable that has inspired the opening of a long-overdue space for surfers, and surf fans to enjoy in the heart of Sunshine Coast surfing, Noosa Heads.
The Noosa Surf Museum hosts several events in their unique conference space. For details on these please head to the WHAT’S ON page.
