One of the first things that strikes people when they walk into SHACC is the “Timeline of Surfing” that’s on permanent display. From Duke Kahanamoku’s personal boards to the high-performance modern boards ridden by today’s world champions, every major era and advancement in surfing is well represented.
SHACC also curates multiple rotating exhibits every year (check below to see which exhibit is currently up). Focusing on unique and important facets of surfing and surf culture, recent subjects include the influence of women in surfing, the impact of surf shops on local cultures, the evolution of the shortboard, and surfing in cinema. These exhibits are housed in The Croul Family Foundation Gallery.
SHACC has travelling exhibits that can be loaned out to other institutions. If you’re interested in our travelling exhibits please contact our Curator, Barry Haun, at [email protected]
Exhibits are available for a limited time. Come down to SHACC and learn some surf history.
