Be awe-inspired by big wave surfing at the Fremantle Arts Centre with the new exhibition Frontier Surfing.

Frontier Surfing explores WA's history with big wave surfing and the mystical connection between the surfer and the wave. The exhibition tracks the early history of surfing in WA, going back to the pioneers who explored the now famous surf breaks along the coastline, to the present day Mavericks towing into monster waves off the WA coast.

The Exhibition features work by legendary surf photography John Witzig as well as large-scale images by renowned local photographers Jamie Scott and Russel Ord. Also on display are a series of surfboards dating back to the last 50 years and video footage of big wave surfing and interviews with the surfers who are brave enough to ride them. All in all, this exhibition will leave you with a mystical sense of adventure and an appreciation of WA's magnificent coastline.
