A vintage surfboard, with links to the region, has made its way to the South West and found a home at the WA Surf Gallery.

Former resident Robyn Rigg recently visited the gallery at Aravina Estate, Yallingup and donated the board.

Ms Rigg lived in the South West is the 70s and worked at Pipelines Legrope factory in Wyadup with surf industry pioneers such John Malloy, and Helen and David Hattrick.

She heard about the gallery through social media and wanted to donate her 1981 Odyssey Surfboard by shaper Bruce Smith to the exhibition.

The vintage surfboard had been sitting under her house for over 30 years.

The surfboard is now on display at the gallery, which is free to the public and open daily from 10am to 5pm.
