Trigger Bros yellow surfboard manufactured in 1990. The 'Thruster' board was designed to be used in waves up to six foot.
The Trigger brothers interest in surfing first began in the 1960s when their family lived on Victoria's west coast. Their passion for surfing continued to grow when they moved to the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Largely self taught in the making of surfboards, the brothers established Trigger Bros Surfboards in 1970. Their company is still in operation today and the business now has seven stores across Victoria.
