Texas Surf Museum
Texas is not just the land of cowboys and oil barons, it's also home to thousands of surfers who are just as stoked and dedicated to their sport as any Californian or Hawaiian. The Texas Surf Museum, which opened in 2005 in Corpus Christi, explores the history of surfing in general and showcases the Lone Star State's unique place in that history.
The Texas Surf Museum is a must-see for anyone who ever surfed, and a delightful adventure for non-surfers as well. Relax on a bench made from surfboards, catch a surf film in the projection theater, and spot old buddies and young stars in the hundreds of photos scattered throughout the museum.
