About event

There is something special about the feeling you get when you pickup a new custom surfboard from your local surfboard builder. Just the smell of a new board starts to excite the senses in every surfer. Holding that craft under your arm, feeling the rails for the first time and dreaming of how it will perform is a sensual experience. Talking to the Shaper and the people that built the craft (Glasser's, Sander's&Sprayer's)about how it was made is also a big part of the stoke!

Foamlust has been setup to help show the public just what they get for their money when they purchase a surfing product. Meeting the surfing manufactures to discuss their product is great for all. Surfing manufactures get the chance to gain feedback from their clients and the surfing general public get to see what goes into making a quality product. Complementing the market will be an exhibition of vintage surfboards that ooze with character and charm. They tell of past dreams in the shaping bay and the stoke of the many waves ridden on them.

There will also be a photo exhibition from local surf photographers with slideshows being run on the big screen documenting the history of surfing in this area. Also on the big screen we will be showing surf movies from local film makers. There are great prizes to be won and lots more fantastic surfing products to check out in this great surfing expo!

For more info check out rest of the site or contact us.

Yours in surfing,
John Dutton & Bill Gibson.

About us

John Dutton and Bill Gibson are enthusiasts of all things surfing. Together they have formed” Foam Lust” to pass on some of the stoke to others.

John is the Polyurethane research and development engineer (ding repairer) that runs Margaret River Surfboard Repairs & Vortexsurf in space shared with Nathan Rose Surfboards. Originally from Cronulla in Sydney, he has lived in the Margaret River area for the past 20 years and is now bringing up his new family in the area. His skill and knowledge about fibreglass is endless. He makes broken and dinged boards look new. John also rides a range of boards and is always looking for what makes a particular board tick so that he can constantly improve his knowledge about surfboards.

Bill Gibson grew up surfing the waves in the Scarborough district of Perth. He made frequent visits to the South –west in the late sixties and early 70’s. As soon as he had finished his apprenticeship in Perth he moved to the south-west in 1974 and has been here ever since. He raised his children here and now enjoys watching his grand kids in the surf around Margarets. Bill rides Mals but don’t hold that against him. He has a great collection of single fin surfboards that he loves to ride and share with friends. The stories that these boards tell is also of interest to Bill. He is a foundation member of the Margaret River Boardriders and still competes in Club, State and National events.

2014 live music @ foamlust info coming soon!
