One Slightly Obsessed Collector holds his own Swap Meet
|Coolangatta Event poster|
Co-owner of Underground Surf in McLean Street, Coolangatta, Andre 'Ondi' Marsaus has his own Vintage Swap Meet coming up on Saturday 8th October, 2011.
A highly impassioned collector, Ondi, runs the surf emporium with his partner Maree.
So if you're in the market to buy/sell/swap up any old vintage surfboards or related gear, the Southern end of the Gold Coast is the place to head on October 8th.
If you want some of idea how deep Ondi is in - you have to have a peek at the current issue of the awesome free bi-monthly surf magazine, Smorgasboarder.
They just published a two-page spread featuring Andre 'Ondi' Marsaus and part of his collection of over 300 boards. [see insert right].
|Meet the Fleet: This assemblage of foam and fibreglass |
represents about one quarter of Ondi's classic
surfboard collection. Above are pages
48-49 of the new Smorgasboarder Magazine

Should be a real fun day and a good chance to rub shoulders with many fellow enthusiasts. It's always interesting to see what gets dragged out from the rafters.
This is all part of testing the waters for the big Bleach Surf Festival that will be coming up on the Gold Coast in February in 2012.
