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.

Following the lead of her father, Belinda Wehner built the surf school from a hobby to a local institution. After 12 years, she has now taken time out to travel the world with her surfboard and yoga mat.
