ONE of the most influential surfer-shapers in the history of surfing, Simon Anderson, will be visiting the Museum of British Surfing on Sunday.
When the Australian developed his three-fin "Thruster" design in the early Eighties he changed the face of surfing forever – creating a design that has dominated wave riding for the last 30 years, and remains the standard competition board today.
While people had experimented with three fins on a surfboard before, Simon's "Thruster" set-up created a board that blew the everything else of the water when he won the Bells Beach Classic in 1981.
Simon will be spending the afternoon at the surfing museum so you can drop in and have a chat with him.
If you have one of his original Thrusters you can bring it along for him to check out.
Simon Anderson visits the Museum of British Surfing on Sunday, September 15 between 2pm and 4pm. Entry: £2 donation all day.
