Not sure what is going on with this place. Website and its facebook page say it's open, but we went yeaterday and it was locked up and looked like it was being dismantled inside, like it was permenantly closing.

I am not a surfer but seeing all the boards and photos on display was very nice. Took my brother and sister-in-law here and they enjoyed it. They have a small gift shop where you can purchase CDs by local Texas artists which is very cool.

The TX Surf Museum is a nice small display of the history of surfing. there are several surf board displays showing he evolution of the board. Plus a lot of history. If you are interested in surfing it is a nice place to send a few hours.
