The First Wave exhibition at The Museum of British Surfing – new from April 5th 2014

TFW OverviewThe Museum of British Surfing re-opens after its annual winter refit on Saturday April 5th 2014, with its third major new exhibition ‘The First Wave – surfers & their stories‘.

This exciting new display has touch-screen units so that you can find out about British surfing history from those who were there, including interviews with people who were surfing here almost 100 years ago! A new eight minute film about UK surf heritage has been produced and will be showing on a loop on a special screen.

You’ll be able to see action & hear stories from famous British surfers like big wave experts Andrew Cotton & Gabe Davies, plus the late Viscount Ted Deerhurst who became the UK’s first professional surfer back in 1978.

Surfboards and other items have been selected that help to tell the story of surfing in the UK, and for the first time we are adding QR codes to many items on display so that you can find out even more information on your smartphone.

We are celebrating opening for our third year with a revamped price structure for visitors giving even better value for money. From April 2014 when you buy a full price adult or concession ticket you can get in free for the rest of the year! Plus children aged 16 and under now go free (when accompanied by an adult), which means it will be cheaper for families to come & enjoy our surf culture and heritage displays.

There are new children’s activities for 2014, and we’ll reveal more about the fun ‘pop-up’ challenge with Ollypop very soon! There’s the ever popular spotter’s trail, and the chance to play pinball on an original 1970s surfing themed pinball machine!

‘The First Wave’ exhibition runs from April 5th to December 31st 2014 at the Museum of British Surfing, Caen Street car park, Braunton, North Devon EX33 1AA – see the information section on our website for opening times, admission charges and directions.
