Surf’s up at the Yamba Museum
YAMBA Museum will officially launch its third summer season surfing exhibition, Surf Cult, tomorrow night.
Exhibition curator Debrah Novak said she had found some "absolute treasures, many of which are the original designs and brands of the early surfing days in Yamba and Angourie".
This exhibition is more tactile than previous ones which mostly focused on photographs.
Cottage industries, which became commercial enterprises with well known brands such as Fandango and Country Style, are given modern day twists and feature alongside the Witzig brothers. Water cameraman Kendall O'Brien and award-winning local wave art photographer Deb M will also have examples of their work exhibited.
A vintage Valiant - towing a renovated Sunliner caravan - will be on show tomorrow and Saturday only.
The exhibition opening is at 6pm and continues until February next year.
