The ASRL represents the surf rowers of Australia, guiding the development and promoting the advancement of National surfboat competition at both grassroots and elite levels.
The attached "History of the Modern Surfboat" has been very generously compiled by Bert Hunt, Life Member ASRL
You're now invited to read through the updated history of the modern surf boat. We hope you enjoy revisiting some of the wonderful memories of our past and present surfboat builders.
Bert adds: "This document hasn’t been researched to the point of total accuracy and isn’t meant to be the definitive compilation of the stages of surfboat manufacture. It is written with a view to inviting others to provide some of the detail to backfill some of the gaps. Apologies in advance to any boat builder missed or for any detail not correct, as this is an attempt to create a running history of our evolution and later versions will correct and record and add any missing pieces."
