Piece of surfing cultural history found in Trigg home as it was being demolished

A PIECE of surfing cultural history has been discovered at a Trigg home.

Architect Bernard Seeber found a mural painted on the inside of garage doors of the West Coast Drive property when it was being demolished.

“It appears to be the work of a 1970s surfer, possibly an early board riders’ club member,” he said.

“It would be great to know some history so that we can catalogue its origin and work towards finding a suitable home for it.”

Mr Seeber hoped someone might be able to shed some light on the artwork, which is being stored at his office.

“Board riders’ clubs were taking off in those days and some of the characters will still be around,” he said.

“The artist or someone who knew the artist may still be using the beach. There was a degree of difference between the board riders and surf lifesaving clubs that could be recorded as part of the valuable history of this unique beach.”
