Following the success of last year’s Winter Board Swap, a strong crowd bringing dozens of boards to the event despite the bitter conditions, Patagonia shall be hosting another swap-meet, this time, with a little luck, in more favourable temperatures and climate.
The Summer board Swap will give surfers and collectors the opportunity to buy, sell, swap or simply show off boards of any description to likeminded attendees. Whether long, short, vintage or brand new, all types of craft are welcome. Last year’s extensive quiver saw alaias and belly boards sharing the scene with a vintage Midget Farrelly single fin, a George Greenough-style spoon, new-retro fishes, bonzers and logs and a healthy collection of modern shortboards.
The Patagonia Summer Board Swap is being held on Saturday, 22nd January, from 4pm to 6pm at Patagonia’s flagship Torquay store, 116, Surfcoast Hwy. Entry is free, although places are limited, so register today either instore or on (03) 5261 4420
