A priceless 30 year collection of surf nostalgia and culture will soon be made public, with the launch of the Legends Surf Museum.
Opening day is Thursday September 10 and it is located at the Cavanbah Arcade, next to Loft Byron Bay and opposite The Beach Hotel. The museum will be open seven days a week, from 9am till 5pm.
Mojosurf founder Nat Folkes says the museum will be a testament to Australian surfing icon Scott Dillon (August 19, 1928 – December 12, 2018).
Nat says Dillon was a long-term friend, and passed his collection on to him, ‘with the aspiration to share his collection with like-minded individuals who have a passion for the history of surfing and the evolution of the surfboard’.
‘Scott always wanted to share the history with the world and he had embarked on this journey with the original creation of Legends Surf Museum on the Coffs Coast in his shaping shed.
‘For me, this is an opportunity to showcase not only a good friend’s collection, but also provide a platform for others to tell their story and connect’.
Surf memorabilia and surfboards in every shape and size imaginable, from all over the world, will be on show, featuring legendary shapers Scott Dillon, Jerry Lopez, Takiama, Mark Richards, Bob McTavish, Robert August and many more.
