The Texas Surf Museum - Corpus Christi,Texas

The Texas Surf Museum - Corpus Christi

My wife and "surf legend" Martha shows us how to "Hang Ten" (sorta)

We recently visited the The Texas Surf Museum in Corpus Christi. It was an interesting place filled with memorabilia from the history of surfing in South Texas. Website: The Texas Surf Museum..They tell you on their website that "Just like the waves the museum is always  free - 7 days a week!"  But, to be true, they also tell you it's closed on Mondays, so make that 6 days.

Since we had never been to a surf museum, we didn't really know what to expect. This one is mostly about the locals and the local board makers. It's sort of an interesting place to visit.  There is a kiosk that shows a movie about how boards are made. and another that talks about the surf legends of the area. 

Truthfully this museum is fun but if it weren't free I am not sure I would have gone.  Still, it is worth stepping in and "ridin the wave." Did I mention it's free?

Out in front of the museum there is a concrete replica of a legendary "Woody." Kinda makes you want to hit the beach right?

Surf boards belonging to local legends and even one with the signatures of the "Beach Boy's."

Yes, they do this. Surfing the waves behind oil tankers. Who'd a thunk it?
