Since the formation of Surfing Heritage South Africa In June 2009 we have sought to secure premises at Dairy Beach's New Pier to establish the Surfing Heritage Visitor Centre. Upon successful tender to the eThekwini Municipality they have chosen Surfing Heritage SA as the prefered tenant to occupy the Pumphouse building at Beach Node 3, Dairy Beach(pictured) in which to establish the centre.
Surfing Heritage SA's Visitor Centre which will present the history of SA surfing using their collection of memorabilia and artifacts of cultural value that has been enlarged since purchasing the contents of the Timewarp Museum in 2009. The centre will offer a surfing themed cafe for the surfing community, Durban residents and visitors to Durban and will incorporate a retail store offering core surfing product for surfers and a memorabilia/heritage orientated line of product for visitors to the centre. Surfing Heritage South Africa will share office space in the centre with Kwa Zulu Natal Surfriders Association, making Dairy Beach's New Pier the headquarters of the provinces surfing administration. Surfing Heritage South Africa will work out of the centre to achieve all our aims and objectives.
We have begun an extensive fundraising campaign and reaching out to all sectors, locally and internationally to collaborate with us in achieving our goal:
