Ringing ‘The Bell at Bells’ is synonymous with surfing greats. For over seven decades, surfers have flocked to Bells Beach, or Djaark on Wadawurrung country, for the honour of holding The Bell trophy aloft, for a raucous crowd. Handmade by only a handful of people since 1961, The Bells trophy represent the unique challenges presented by Southern Ocean swells and has become the most iconic and sort after prize in the surfing world.

In this exhibition, the Australian National Surfing Museum reflects on the legacy of the trophy’s makers and those skilled enough to claim it.
