Big wave surf exhibition

TORQUAY is bracing itself for the planet’s biggest, meanest and deadliest waves to roll into Surf World.

Riding Liquid Mountains, which opens at Surf World in March, will be the most comprehensive big wave exhibition in the world.

The exhibition will take visitors on an adrenaline-pumping journey, exploring the evolution of this death-defying sport, its pioneers, champions and the technology that enables surfers to take on the biggest waves in the world.

Photographic images capturing big wave riders at their best will be a particular highlight of the exhibition, along withdisplays of big wave surfboards, artwork and personal memorabilia.

Riding Liquid Mountains will showcase big wave surfboards, events and locations from around the world including:
  • Dozens of big wave surfboards will be on display including a Greg Noll/ Jose Angel 11” gun, a 12” 3’ Velsey Gun Spear through to modern day tow in boards.
  • In 1965, Barrie Sutherland captured on film the biggest swell ever at Bells Beach. Included in this stunning photographic exhibition is an image of John Monie surfing a monster 25 foot plus wave at Bells Beach.
  • The iconic Bell will be on display as well as images and items from big wave charges Jeff Watt, Simon Anderson, Terry Fitzgerald, Russ “Hell Man” McConachy and Greg Brown.
  • Every annual event poster from the Quiksilver Big Wave Invitational at Waimea Bay will be featured as well as Tony Ray’s event trophies.
  • Spectacular images of every winning biggest wave and biggest paddle in wave ridden since the inception of the Billabong XXL.
  • Images from the Billabong Odyssey, Japan, Mavericks, Ireland and Shark Park.
Artwork from Norvell Watson and John Severson as well as big wave posters, clothing, books, moving image, magazines, a jet ski, sled, tow rope and even a foil board belonging to Ross Clarke-Jones will also feature in the exhibition.
