  • Great place to go to for yourself or with the family, tons of surf history informative staff who love there job.
  • Approximately 12-months ago, my family and I dropped in when we were checking things out downtown Oceanside. I was amazed at all the history preserved inside their cozy building. Pictures from the late 50's to the present. The one thing which caught our attention was the beautifully hand-crafted wooden surfboards. If you like surfing and want to learn a little more about its's history, then the California Surf Museum the place to be.
  • Discounted admission for students.
  • Great place!
  • Tom Morey is the grand master!
