Statement of significance

The Joanne Harvy Collection consists of a handmade sandboard, a sandboard carry bag, sandboard wax (3 pack), an Ocean Culture logo T-shirt and 4 Ocean Culture stickers.

Harvy began her career as a sandboard manufacturer in 1994 when she was 22 years of age. Her first products were sold through Adelaide surf shops and now Harvy's company, Ocean Culture, exports internationally to France, Spain, United States of America, South Africa, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Venezuela and England. Ocean Culture's customised sandboards have contributed towards establishing Australia as a leader in the manufacture of sandboards and her reputation has raised the profile of sandboarding as a desired leisure pursuit in Australia.
