Surfing World is an interactive tour of landmarks not to be missed, showing the best of surfing's past, present and future in a modern way. Surfing World has an in-depth understanding of surfing history, culture and the sport itself from a local, national and global perspective.
The Santa Cruz Surf Museum is small, but very interesting. It is located in a lighthouse on a cliff, so the 360-degree view is amazing. Once inside, you can read a lot of photos and stories to understand the history of surfing. It takes about half an hour or less to browse the museum, and they have a small amount of souvenirs to buy. Outside, just under the railing on the cliff side, you will see many surfers surfing. This is probably the coolest part of the whole place, because it connects the past with the present. It is strongly recommended to stop here quickly.
Day2: Leaving Geelong and heading straight to the Torquay Surf Museum. I can’t ride the waves, so I have to visit it. The theater in the Surf Museum is still good. There are a lot of surfing videos, which still looks enjoyable.
If you like this sports, you must be there.
We walked along the boardwalk to the Surf Museum, enjoying the beautiful scenery of Santa Cruz. The display is a bit faded, but it does provide some interesting early pictures of surfing on the California coast.
