This place brings more coolness to Corpus!! Old time vintage surf videos, boards, and even a replica of an old surf shop with a board being planed / shaped. Nice little gift shop. Gotta check it! Free.

This museum is in a small building but has a lot of interesting things from old fashioned surf boards to surf wear and pictures they even have a coconut that was mailedfrom Hawaii to Texas back in the 70's before postal regulations ruined everything. Worth the visit!

Though I'm not much for surfing, this museum is FREE, so why not check it out. My husband thought it was pretty cool, though small. I found the gift shop more entertaining than the museum itself, so my FREE experience did cost me the amount of two coconut rings, some Sanuk sandals and a t-shirt. The location is perfect. You...

No big deal. Had some history about surfing and a few surf boards. I guess if you are into surfing it is okay. It wasn't a big deal to me. They do have a shop and I bought a shell bracelet for $4.00 which was good. The shop had a few nice things.

Yes, this was only the second surf museum I've been to (the first was in Southern California). It's free though, so even if you aren't that impressed you won't feel short-changed ;)

It was mainly just a lot of surf boards. I think they just need to aquire some more artifacts and give someone like me, from California, a taste of the Texas surf culture.
