I'm glad we decided to finally stop by and check out the first Surf Museum in the world! Admission and parking is free, and wait time to get into museum was zero. You can literally step in and loop around step out, it was that small. Don't be fooled by it's size for the history and nostalgia was immense. To get more in the surfing vibe we walked a few feet to peer over the cliffs to view the surfer's catching waves at Steamer Lane, which will be my next post....so stay tuned.
