On Thursday 20 July 2017 representatives from Surfing WA and some veteran South West surfers met with management at Aravina Estate, Yallingup to discuss the setting up of a SW Surf History Museum on the Estate.
The proposed museum will showcase vintage surfboards, trophies, magazines, memorabilia and photographs from the 50s to present. Surfboard shaping and other live surfing related demonstrations will take place at the venue.
