“One man’s trash is another’s treasure.” Surfrider Foundation Gold Coast Tweed is hosting their Summer Board Swap at Currumbin Alley on Saturday 4 December. The first board swap back in May was a huge success with over 200 people walking up and bringing their old surfboards that were lying around their houses. This event should be even bigger.
Surfrider Foundation Gold Coast Tweed desires to highlight the beauty of reducing, reusing, and recycling surfboards, in a city obsessed with the consumption of new surfboards.
“Why would you pay $600 for a new surfboard, when you could swap an old board that you don’t use anymore with another mate’s board and walk away with a new (old) magic board?” – Adam Feichtmann President of Surfrider Foundation Gold Coast Tweed.
There will be a wide collection of surfboards: short boards, fishes, quads, bonzers, eggs, guns, logs, historical collectible, and more. Everything from barely ridden beauties to garage-sale beaters will be available.
The event will be held at the park across the street from Currumbin Alley on Saturday 4st of December from 9am-12pm. Walk on up for free, sign in at the Surfrider Foundation table and browse around for your recycled magic board.
