History of surfing in Britain

The First Wave oral history project, run by volunteers on behalf of Porthtowan Surf Life Saving Club in Cornwall, is capturing people’s memories about the early days of surfing and how it has changed over the decades, by collecting up to 100 audio and video interviews with the people who have been involved in its development.  The full archive will be stored at the Museum of British Surfing and the museum will also take over the running of the website from the end of the year, allowing oral histories to be collected even after this project has been completed. http://www.museumofbritishsurfing.org.uk For full story click here.
