The California Surf Museum in Oceanside is located three blocks east of the Oceanside Fishing Pier. It's very small, but the surf lore, the exhibits, and the numerous surf boards dating back to the mid-twentieth century, make up for this lack of quantity.

California Surf Museum attracts nearly 30,000 visitors each year with its unique collection of rare surfboards, photographs, swimsuits, beach fashion, and surf equipment. Exhibits rotate annually with many surf cultural events like book signings, movies, Gala's and more, throughout the year. Great for surfers and non-surfers alike.
