Going back to the roots of surfing, even further back than the ancient 16th century Hawaiian Olo surfboard, this year we’ll be showing you a replica of a traditional ‘dugout’ Polynesian Surf Canoe. History that Tom Wegener brought to light with Dave Rastovich and talented wood craftsman Andy Ceglinski.
After a massive undertaking of sourcing the right tree, transporting it to a place where it can be worked at and then realising that it was a huge mission to shape a traditional canoe with only hand tools…it took Tom Wegener, Dave Rastovich and finally Andy Ceglinski almost 1 year to finish off this traditional surf canoe replica.
Wategos Beach, Sun 26th Oct, 9 am – 2 pm
