Australia’s largest collection of Surfboards.
Surfworld Gold Coast would like to introduce our new Chairman Rod Brooks. A Former president of Surfing Australia, Rod Brooks learnt to ride a board in the south-east wind slop at the Middle Brighton Pier in Port Phillip Bay as a 12-year-old.
There began a 40-year relationship with the winter swells resulting in five Victorian Open Surfing Titles, 11 appearances in the Bells Easter Championship finals, leading administrator and part-time career as a major surfing event director.
As part of Quiksilver International he directed the Quiksilver Pro World Champion Tour events at new exotic locations like G-land, East Java, and Cloudbreak Reef in Fiji. Rod was also involved as Chairman and Technical Director of the International Surfing Association and helped develop the modern World Surfing Games, which now attract entries from 42 countries. As President of Surfing Australia, he along with Alan Atkins introduced fulltime surfing administration to run the sport.
Rod was also instrumental in the formation of the Australian National Surfing Museum in Torquay and has resided on the Gold Coast for over a decade. Rod has been on the Surf World Gold Coast Surf Museum committee as Vice chair for a few years before stepping up to the Chairman's position.
