California Surf Museum
The California Surf Museum has been chronicling surf culture and preserving surf memorabilia for 25 years. Some exhibits are permanent, such as the Brief History of Surfboards, which features specimens of “plank surfboards — reminiscent of surfing’s roots in Polynesia — through foam and fiberglass to modern boards.”
Other exhibitions are more topical, such as the one featuring Bethany Hamilton, the surfer who lost her arm to a shark (and still surfs), which includes her shark-bitten board and her wetsuit from that day.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors, kids 12 and under are free. Open daily, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Thursday until 8 p.m.
