You can dump a range of revisions from an existing repo and create a
new one based on the dump:

> dump: usage: svnadmin dump REPOS_PATH [-r LOWER[:UPPER] [--incremental]]
> load: usage: svnadmin load REPOS_PATH

If you really want to use the entire history before some revision,
this is pretty easy and safe and you don't need to deal with
difficulties by excluding things.

Carefully read the help regarding how "load" behaves for UUIDs and
think about the existing repo, it's checked out working copies etc.
Safest would be to start with a new UUID in the new repo and new
checkouts.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
