I'm excited to announce SURF SWAP #8 presented by Deus Ex Machina and Boardcollector.
Bondi Pavilon Sunday 9am to 6pm September 27th.
There's a lot going on this time to keep you amused.
Wall of Joy-
Bring down your pre-1990 boards of any condition and we will help you find a new home for it.
You can leave the board and phone number with us for the day and roam around and enjoy the vibe. We will look after it and when someone purchases or makes an offer we will call you right away.
For the first time we will be doing expert appraisals on the day. Bring down your old fin, surf photo, vintage magazine, surfboard or piece of surf memorabilia for our experts to appraise, value and fill you in on its forgotten history. Its like a salty version of Antiques Roadshow!
Appraisers include Stu Nettle from Swellnet, Gavin Scott and Damion Fuller.
Show and Shine-
Also for the first time we invite you to bring down your your prized vintage quiver to display, share & chat about. Already we have a handful of Gerry Lopez Lightning Bolts for you to drool over, Lazor Zaps, Spoons and I might even bring down a dozen or two of my treasured twin fins for you to look at.
We have dedicated the whole amphitheatre to the 'show and shine' with space for more than 100 vintage sticks.
