The California Surf Museum has re-surfaced from a big wave hold-down known as the Covid Pandemic. Now that we are up for air, our exhibit area and store are open and visitors are returning. JOIN THE LINE UP AND DONATE TO THE CALIFORNIA SURF MUSEUM ON GIVING TUESDAY. You can also grab a bigger wave by becoming a Museum Member. Included is free admission to the exhibit area, a 10% discount on store merchandise and certain events. Coming soon, you will be totally stoked by the new Donald Takayama Exhibit. So, join the line-up, drop in and support the California Surf Museum as we continue to tell the awesome story of surfing.

Join us in sharing the stoke, and help us reach our goal of $10,000 this Giving Tuesday!

The California Surf Museum was founded in 1986 and has been in operation for three decades serving tens of thousands of annual visitors from over 40 nations around the globe. With a permanent collection which chronicles the history of surfboards and wave-riding, the museum also offers many revolving exhibits each year. In its current museum-quality space, it has acquired a rare set of archives and collections gathered over more than 30 years, comprising one of the world’s richest troves of surfing history.
