Sally has been responsible for the resurgence of classic wood bellyboards in the UK as well as uncovering their amazing history. During WWI the diggers were in the trenches talking about the best things in life and surfing was on the top of the list. From the 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s The bellyboard transformed UK beach culture, fashion, tourism and attitudes. Long before fins were on foam boards, tens of thousands of UK surfers charged the Cornwall breakers on wood bellyboards. Why? Because it was fun,and it still is REALLY FUN!!!
Local surfboard maker Tom Wegener shares Sally’s enthusiasm for wood bellyboards and will join Sally at Noosa Longboards with his extensive collection of bellyboards from Papua New Guinea, old Japan, Brazil, and California! Come join Sally and Tom as they talk story at Noosa Longboards Store, 2/55 Hastings St, Noosa Heads, Qld 4567 – Complimentary refreshments and nibbles
