John Andrews had a preview to the first museum in Britain dedicated to the sport of surfing which opens today at Braunton in North Devon. The sport goes back almost 200 years...and it's big business too, worth millions to local tourism and businesses.
The Museum of British Surfing at Braunton covers the history and art of riding the waves. It has the board ridden by Edward Prince of Wales on a trip to Hawaii before his abdication, and traces British surfing back to the days of Captain Cook's discoveries in the South Pacific.
