Oxbow is proud to announce a new three year sponsorship deal with the British Surfing Museum.

The Surfing Museum is the first and only museum of its kind in the UK. It has been set up to preserve and celebrate British surf history and has toured across selected locations of the UK for over three years now.

The museum has the most extensive and historically significant collection of vintage surfboards, literature and memorabilia on public display and for academic research in Britain. Museum Director Peter Robinson says: “The museum aims to document our rich and diverse surf culture and its heritage, capturing the soul of British surfing. Oxbow's generous donation means we have a secure future until at least 2010”.

Oxbow’s current marketing strategy aims to ‘go back to the roots’ of Oxbow – longboard surfing. This long term support of The Surfing Museum aims to demonstrate the brands dedication to surfing and aims to help preserve the history of the sport for generations to come. The museum is also planning to open in a new purpose-built venue in 2010.

The Surfing Museum will next be on display at:

Havant Museum in Hampshire, January 19th - March 1st 2008

Red House Museum, Christchurch, May 3rd - June 14th 2008

The National Fishing Heritage Centre, Grimsby June 28th - September 7th 2008
