California Surf Museum

Aug 04th 2015

The California Surf Museum, located only seven miles north in Oceanside, is a great way to spend an afternoon learning about this vibrant aspect of SoCal culture. 

Along with the factual side of things, you’ll find boards belonging to famous surfers such as, “Soul Surfer” Bethany Hamilton and Duke Kahanamoku, the supposed father of surfing. The museum also offers presentations of iconic surf films, and if you’re lucky enough to catch the live surf guitar band, stick around; they are well worth the listen.
