    Best surfing museum by FAR! The so called "smithsonian of surfing" makes all the other collections look pretty pathetic in comparison. Went to the Hobie event and it is just the coolest including a replica of Hobie's first shop.

    A tremendous place to visit those who are interested in the history of surfing. I have to pay entrance. The person that we attended gave us a lovely, personalized tour it. Highly recommended along with sight to many surfers who invade the beaches of San Clemente. Greetings from another San Clemente, Maule, Chile region.
