Where form meets function

Who doesn’t like a surfer girl?

The California Surf Museum is currently celebrating the history of Women on Waves in a comprehensive exhibition that covers the full story of feminine surfing. Included are Hawaiian surfing Queens and a full look at beach fashion. The history, stretching over 300 years, is told through artifacts, film, and photography.

Women on Waves caught our eye, and will surely also do wonders to help advance the cause of the California Surf Museum mission of preserving all and sundry when it comes to riding giants.
