Broulee Surf School History – The original logo

The surf school at Broulee Beach was founded in the 1990’s by Kel Wehner, local surfing identity, surfboard maker and surf shop owner. Kel has surfed the Eurobodalla Shire for more than 30 years and pioneered many of the local breaks. He taught his kids Shane, Damien and Belinda to surf at a young age, who all discovered a life long passion for surfing.
