OC Weekly's Description

The Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum is in Huntington Beach. Only 10 percent of Surf City residents surf, according to the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum's website, but the 90 percent who have never climbed on a board like to watch those who do. The intense pleasure gained by seeing muscled, tanned, (mostly) male surfers conquer the elements (or wipe out in the process) makes the sport Southern California's NASCAR. The International Surfing Museum is a non-profit, 501(c) museum in Huntington Beach, Orange County, California.[1] The museum's goal is to preserve the history of the surfing culture throughout the globe. It is dedicated to Duke Kahanamoku, who is generally regarded as the person who popularized the modern sport of surfing.[2] The International Surfing Museum displays historic surfboards, provides information about legendary surfers, and shows classic surf films. Visitors can examine artistic surfing sculptures and hear surf music. Admission to the museum is without charge.
