The California Surf Museum announces the grand opening of its next exhibit, “From the Brown Mercury to SL8ER – a Glimpse of 100 Years of Surfing Culture in Southern California,” on Sunday, July 20. This ambitious display will trace the broad cultural influence that surfing has had on our idyllic lifestyle over the last century, beginning with talented waterman George Freeth and ending with one of today’s international surf idols, Kelly Slater. “Unique surfboards, movie posters, record albums, vintage beachwear and a vast assortment of photos combine to make one of the most interesting shows we’ve ever attempted,” said Ric Riavic, museum curator. “There will literally be something for everyone to enjoy in this exhibit.”
The grand opening will be held from 1-4pm on Sunday, July 20 at the museum’s current location, 223 North Coast Highway in downtown Oceanside. Special guests will be in attendance and light refreshments will be served. The public is welcome. Free admission.
