 Thalpe Surf Crew  - When I first met these boys all they had was a couple of ancient black dented boards without fins which they share and a unbridled love of surfing. Over the past couple of years I’ve passed on boards donated by friends and the crew has grown. They have a beachfront shack as their club and dreams of learning how to make boards and starting a surf school. If anyone is interested in donating their old boards, please contact me      SEE MORE
