When Jersey waterman Nigel Oxenden returned from his global travels post World War One he created the Island Surf Club. This part of their cultural history still remains above the beach at St Oens. A green corogated hut, stands alone, proud in its ancestry. Built as his beach house around 1923 the "green hut" became the focus of surfing in Jersey where friends and travellers would meet and share their stories and develop their celebrated place in European surfing. I believe the Jersey Surf Club was formed in 1959 and still welcomes visitors from all over the world.
