Surf champ scoops prize as museum’s 2,000th visitor

Two-time under 18s British surfing champion Laura Crane picked-up her latest prize – a Museum of British Surfing organic ladies t-shirt as a prize for being our 2,000th visitor!

The Team GB member rides for Billabong, Nalu Beads and Ashfords Solicitors, and is off next week to compete in the Euro Pro Junior surfing champs in France where she’ll be wearing our shirt with pride.

Laura is pictured checking out a 1970 Overlin twin-fin with a patriotic Union Jack design on the bottom, one of the displays in the surfing museum’s opening exhibition ‘The Art of Surf’.

The Museum of British Surfing opened for the first time in its new permanent home in Braunton, North Devon on April 6, 2012.

The Museum of British Surfing is open from 11am to 5pm from Tuesday to Sunday (closed Mondays, except bank and school holidays). All proceeds from entry fees and our souvenir shop go into running and developing the charity’s work, both in UK surfing history and in the local North Devon community.
