Heaps of information and history on local surfing, with lots of cool photos from the last 70 years. A quick stop, but well worth it for surf fans.

If you are going to do the Santa Cruz West Cliff Drive plan to check this sweet museum out. Expect parking to be an issue on the weekends.

Awesome place of history, its worth looking for a parking spot to see it. Hang out and watch the surfers at Steamers

Friendly staff member who was willing to answer questions that we had. The visit went great. We even bought a few little things while in the shop. It was great to learn the history, too!

We stopped into the surfing museum while walking along the cliff road and enjoying the gorgeous scenery in Santa Cruz. The displays are somewhat faded, but it did provide some interesting old pictures of the early days of surfing on the California coast.
