Cowabunga! The Texas coast is home to thousands of passionate surfers who are deeply devoted to their sport. It was this enthusiasm that brought on the Texas Surf Museum to Corpus Christi in 2005. This small and unique museum explores the history of surfing and informs visitors of Texas’ role in the surfing culture. Whether you are an avid surfer or have hardly touched a board in your life, any kind of vacationer will enjoy a visit to the Texas Surf Museum.
