Report from Peter “PT” Towend: San Clemente’s Surfing Heritage and Culture Center, the preeminent repository of significant surf culture stories, artifacts, photos, and video, is pleased to announce the election of Glenn Brumage to the position of President of the Board of Directors. Brumage who has served as a member of the Board since 2015, replaces Keith Eshelman who served as President in 2016. Eshelman will remain on the Board and serve as Treasurer.
Eshelman stated “Glenn has shown strong leadership in the strategic direction of SHACC, working well with the Board of Directors, staff and the surfing community. He has a great passion for SHACC’s mission of recording and sharing the stories and artifacts that accurately represent the contributions surfing has made to worldwide culture.”
Brumage was raised on Southern California beaches where he developed a deep love of surfing and “boardsports” culture. His professional career has spanned surf, skate, and snow sports in retail, wholesale sales, marketing and executive management. He is currently President of Future Shock Consulting, Director of Business Development at Wabsono International, and mentors several young surf industry businesses. 

For the past ten years, Mr. Brumage has worked toward developing surfing in China, including producing the annual “Silver Dragon” professional surf contest in Hangzhou. He also serves on the Board of the International Association of Skateboard Companies.
While serving on the Board at SHACC, his efforts were instrumental in convincing the Smithsonian National Museum of American History to accept artifacts that represent the positive impact of surfing lifestyle on American history and culture.
Dick Metz, Founder of Surfing Heritage and Surfing Culture Center, said, “I’ve known Glenn since he was a “young Turk” working at the Dana Point Hobie shop in the late 70”s. I’m proud of what he’s accomplished in his life, with his family, in his dedication to surf culture, the industry, and especially to the mission and vision of Surfing Heritage and Culture Center.”
“Surfing runs in my veins. I look forward to helping lead SHACC into an ambitious future.” said Brumage. “I hope to grow the Board and expand its volunteer committees by adding respected talent from surf culture, business, and persons who have significant experience in nonprofit boards. Look for Surfing Heritage & Culture Center’s mission and vision to become more recognized across every communication platform from in-person to virtual experiences where our content can be viewed anywhere in the world.”
