California Surf Museum Coupons, Savings and Ski Resort Description for 2024

The California Surf Museum was founded in February 1986 when architect/surfer Stuart Resor appeared in a local newspaper article inviting interested people to found a museum to honor the history of surfing.Thirteen various folks showed up, formed a board of directors, and went to work! Looking for a place to call home, CSM was first based in an Encinitas restaurant (George's, owned by co-founder Jane Schmauss). CSM then had a one-year stint in its own showcase in Moonlight Plaza in Encinitas, then two years in the Promenade Plaza in Pacific Beach. From 1991-1996, CSM was located across the street from Oceanside’s Pier, with a block-sized lot to hold plenty of outdoor events and enjoy amazing sunsets. In 1996, CSM moved inland four blocks to Coast Highway, across from the Oceanside Civic Center.
