On Friday, July 13th and Saturday July 14th (rain date Sunday July 15th) from 4:00 to 7:00pm, Waterbrother’s Sid Abruzzi is once again organizing an outstanding showing of hundreds of surfboards representing all the eras of surfing history for viewing on the beautiful grounds of one of Newport’s most elegant estates. While special emphasis will be placed on the surfboard evolution that took place during the 1960’s and 1970’s, examples of pre 60’s surf craft and fun and interesting designs from the 80’s to the present will also be displayed.
Among the sponsors for this year’s event are the Newport Restoration Foundation, Water Brothers, Barcardi USA, Narragansett Beer, and Houlihan, Managhan, Morrissey & Kyle. There will be a cash bar plus great local food available for purchase at the Tallulah’s Tacos and Flat Waves food carts. Attendees will also be able to visit the exhibit, Passport to the World: Doris Duke the International Traveler, in the Rough Point Galleries.
The Doris Duke Rough Point Mansion is located at 680 Bellevue Avenue Newport, Rhode Island. The Doris Duke Surf Fest, is part of the Newport Restoration Foundation’s Rough Point After Dark series.
Advance ticket purchase are strongly encouraged. Cost of tickets is $10 (children under 12 are free) and can be purchased at Water Brothers (23 Memorial Blvd., Newport), Flat Waves (1130 Aquidneck Avenue, Middletown) and Rough Point.
