  • Super chill little Shop, I got to talk to the front desk ladies as much as anything else.
  • Super small and not worth the price. I mean I guess it seems like a "must do" when visiting Surf City USA, but they charge you extra to get a "tour" of the giant surf board outside that you just see from the sidewalk. The woman says two sentences and then leaves you in the parking lot. You have to run around the front if you want to get back in.
  • Tiny but oh so cute and worth the very few minutes it takes to go through, love the vintage theatre seating for the endless summer (that was the movie playing when I was there)...Some vintage surf history here😊
  • I was expecting a museum but got more of a gallery experience. It's inexpensive and still worth a quick look.
  • Loved this museum! Tina was very nice and showed me around the museum, while telling me about the history of surfing. I learned so much and will definitely be returning to check out events and new exhibits!
