Surf World is holding an exhibition of the top 20 photos from the Nikon Surf Photo of the Year Awards 2017. This years winner was Luke Shadbolt. Previous winners include Ray Collins, Jon Frank, Peter ‘Joli’ Wilson, Stuart Gibson and Jeremy Wilmotte whose images are published and recognised around the world.

The exhibition showcases the finalists of these prestigious awards that recognise the best single surfing-themed photograph taken during 2016.

The images can be taken anywhere around the world and can be drawn from action, water, lifestyle, line up or portrait photography.

The exhibition will remain on display for another month at surf world, level 1, 35 Tomewin St, Currumbin.

June 18 will also see a pop up exhibition of Surf World memorabilia including surf boards and photos. There will be a sausage sizzle, roving ukulele players and endless surf conversations. It will take place at the Kirra Hill community and cultural centre, 1 Garrick St, Coolongatta from 10am to 4pm.
