Surfboard Artisans: Creating a sustainable industry on the Sunshine Coast In the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis, and despite the influx of cheaper imported surfboards, it appears that Sunshine Coast surfboard makers are resilient and the industry is sustainable in the long term. In a highly competitive, globalised market how has this been possible?

Internationally acclaimed surfboard artisan and University of the Sunshine Coast PhD researcher, Tom Wegener may have the answers. Join Tom on a journey through surf history, as he shares his findings on the philosophy of the artisan and his life story as a surfing entrepreneur, to discover the soul of the surfboard industry.
