Surf Museum on front page of Guardian website

The Museum of British Surfing and its founder Pete Robinson have hit the front page of The Guardian website. This coincides with the opening of the Museum tomorrow. The inaugural exhibition is ‘The Art of Surf’ – displaying 200 years of art in surfing from the sketches of early explorers through to works by contemporary British surfing artists. The first dedicated surfing museum in Europe was started by Pete in 2003, running successful touring exhibitions before it relocated to North Devon in 2009. Pete has since spent the last 3 years securing the building and funding, completing the design work, and so far creating two new jobs. While ‘The Art of Surf’ exhibition will be the main feature, there’s also a section on British surfing history, North Devon surfing and the local environment, and a timeline of British surfboards  – displaying about a quarter of the museum’s collection.
