If you're in the area, you owe it to yourself to visit this great surfing museum. When I visited, they had just installed the "Endless Summer 50th Anniversary Exhibit," filled with everything from the original photos and artwork (that became the most iconic image in surfing), to the cameras that Bruce Brown filmed Robert August and Mike Hynson's around-the-world journey....

This was free. This is in the back of the shore. There are some really neat photos and surfboards that you can look at.

This place feels completely fabricated. Having grown up on Gulf Coast beaches and lived on Atlantic and Pacific Coasts, everyone knows that the only real surfing is during hurricane season. That being said, it's a great draw, and free. Very well done, and The Executive Surf Club next door is a wonderful venue with a great bargain for food, drink,... More

This museum is home to some great surfing memorabilia and music. The shop sells most any Texas music one can want.

We always stop in to browse around when we are downtown Corpus Christi. It's not a big place but it's fun to visit.

The entrance to the Texas Surf Museum is tucked behind the Water Street Oyster Bar so you won't see it from the street. If you want to find it, just ask where the Executive Surf Club is located and you can't miss it. It is also on the same path as the South Texas Music Walk of Fame. Surf Club... More

This was more of a storefront than a museum. Dirty. There were a few surf boards and pictures in the back but mostly a store to buy surfing type things.
