It’s Giving Tuesday 2020!

Please give to the California Surf Museum’s Recovery Fund. The Museum has been hit hard by the pandemic, suffering a major loss in revenue because of shutdowns, cancelled programs and fundraisers, and limited gift shop hours. Nevertheless we are looking beyond Covid, and are super excited about our future with a new strategic plan and an array of awesome programs and exhibits in the works. We’re also planning to re-curate our vast collection of priceless surfboards and other surf-related objects, to help us 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!

California Surf Museum is temporarily closed based on Covid restrictions.

The good news is that our museum store, filled with many unique surfing-related items will remain open 10-4 every day.

You can also shop in our store online.

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.
