The museum in Braunton is looking for enthusiastic individuals to help out at Europe’s only surf museum.

THE Museum of British Surfing is looking for surfing enthusiasts to join its newly established volunteer programme.

The opportunity is open to anyone looking for work experience or hoping to get a foot on the charity or surf industry ladder.

Based in Braunton, the museum has had more than 6,000 visitors since it opened in April.

Founder and director Pete Robinson said: “Whether you’re a student looking to gain valuable work experience, a professional looking to give something back to community projects, or actively looking to get your foot on the charity or surf industry ladder, this opportunity is tailor-made for you.”

The museum boasts the most extensive and historically significant collection of vintage surfboards, literature and memorabilia on public display and for academic research in Europe.

It staged temporary exhibitions all over the UK from 2003 that have been seen by more than 350,000 people before becoming a registered charity and finding its permanent home in North Devon.

Individuals must be able to spare at least three hours a week and should submit their CV and covering note to pete@museumofbritishsurfing.org.uk or by post to Museum of British Surfing, The Yard, Caen Street, Braunton, North Devon EX33 1AA.
