Children’s surfboard art competition launches

added to the website on May 06, 2012

As part of our 2012 exhibition ‘The Art of Surf’ the Museum of British Surfing has launched a children’s surfboard art competition in partnership with local award-winning board builder Gulf Stream.

Young people visiting the museum can let their imagination run riot and come up with designs they’d like to see on a surfboard. There are monthly prizes for our favourites in each age category, and the best overall art of the year will get shaped into a surfboard by craftsman Jools Matthews at Gulf Stream in Woolacombe – the board will then be auctioned to raise money for the museum charity.

“We’d like to thank Gulf Stream for supporting the Museum of British Surfing. The standard of entries has already been very high and it looks like they’ll have a stunning surfboard to create later this year,” said surfing museum founder Peter Robinson.

Age groups are 5 to 8, 9 to 12 and 13 to 16.

It is the latest children’s activity to be launched at the museum, alongside our unique ‘feely boxes’ – a bit like a ‘celebrity jungle’ challenge where you put your hands into tubes to discover what should and shouldn’t be on our beaches! It’s part of our local environment display supported by the North Devon Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Surfers Against Sewage.
