    A must for all who enjoy history or surdam surfing. The Museum is small but there is a great story. 30 minutes are enough for the visit, this still counting with a time to enjoy the view even some live surf in rights that open on the rocks. Is in the place where it was filmed some scenes of the film "All a dream". Has easy on-site parking.
