International Surfing Museum
The International Surfing Museum:
OUR goal is to preserve the history of the surfing culture throughout the globe. It is dedicated to Duke Kahanamoku, who is generally regarded as the person who popularized the modern sport of surfing. The International Surfing Museum displays historic surfboards, provides information about legendary surfers, and shows classic surf films. Visitors can examine artistic surfing sculptures and hear surf music. Admission to the museum is without charge.
About Main Street
The heart of Huntington Beach is on Main Street - with dining, shopping, street vendors, the surfing walk of fame and all the other features one would expect from the largest surfing community in Orange County. Along Main Street one finds a mixture of old and new, as surf shops and restaurants make their home in both modern and vintage buildings. The International Surfing Museum provides a free history lesson and the Huntington Beach Art Center offers a look at the artistic culture of Southern California. Just behind the store fronts of Main Street lies a grittier feel, as graffiti covered walls and narrow alleys stay hidden from the public eye.
