The Surfing Heritage and Culture Center (SHACC) exists at the intersection of surfing’s past, present and future.
We Explore, Enlighten and Celebrate.
SHACC houses the world’s most important and authoritative archive of surfing artifacts, surfboards, memorabilia, photography, video, periodical and scholarly works.
Our collection comes from all corners of the globe, and reflects the spirit of exploration and adventure that is core to surfing’s ethos.
Our educational programs and events focus on bringing surfing’s rich history and stories to the world.
And through it all we celebrate what it means to be a surfer, and why surfing has captured hearts and minds since the first time someone rode a wave
Our mission is to preserve, promote and present surfing’s heritage and cultural impact.
