The Inaugural Durban Summer Board Swap goes down on the 24th Jan.
Summer Board Swap will give surfers and collectors the opportunity to swap boards, surf paraphernalia or simply show off boards of any description to like minded attendees. Whether long, short, vintage or brand new, all types of craft, surf art and gear are welcome.
This is the first event, I have no idea what to expect or what I am doing, all I can promise is that the beer will be cold. - Sam Edwards, organiser, bartender and curator.

from the looks of it, you run a surf shop ? I'm a veteran surfer (80) having started at Kommetjie in 1962. I have two boards made for me by Spotty Watt in East London where I lived for 14 years. They were designed to ride Nahoon Reef and Yellowsands river mouth. Both boards also have long experience surfing Kommetjie inner and (those were the days) the Outer and Long Beach. I lived there for eleven years. Surfed many other surf spots in SAf during a career lasting to 2006.
Wish I could be there for your swop shop, just to see whats going on in the surfing world these days, and to remind myself of when and what the stoke was like getting locked in at the GREEN ROOM at JBay. I have a son Martin of 57 and three grandsons Greg 31, Andrew 28 and Chris 25, all taught by me and all avid surfers.

Rex, you were probably getting shacked before I was born. Respect.
Sam, sounds like a plan.

Rex: Thanks for the support, I dont run a surf shop, its my private home, I have always wanted to attend something like this, but due to nothing in Durban/SA, I decided to do one myself. I am an avid Longboarder and sometime shortboarder, and the same age as your Grandson! Its our rich SA Surfing history that has shaped all surfers in SA, so thank you for your contribution.
BD: Event starts at 5:30pm, I am surfing at 5:30am.
TO EVERYONE: I have had a call for Surf Magazines and DVD's, so if you have these please bring for guys to swap or borrow etc.

Sam, great idea please build it into an annual event. We have such a deep,rich surfing history especially in surfboard construction that it needs to be appreciated and presented to all those younger surfers who have very little idea of our heritage . Anything i can do to help please ask

Rex. I have a Spotty Watt twin fin in excellent condition that I rescued from a business partner of mine's garage.
I would love to know the history of these boards as all I know is that they came from East London.
