Artificial reefs[ edit ] The value of good surf in attracting surf tourism has prompted the construction of artificial reefs and sand bars. Artificial surfing reefs can be built with durable sandbags or concrete, and resemble a submerged breakwater. These artificial reefs not only provide a surfing location, but also dissipate wave energy and shelter the coastline from erosion.
It suddenly seemed to me that the early days of surfing were slipping behind us and if he and others were interested, we could display old surfboards and photographs for future generations to see. The dozen or so people who showed up for that first meeting became the founding board, a mix of men and women, surfers and non-surfers, connected by an avid interest in surfing and a desire to collect its history for the enjoyment of generations to come.
The restaurant was open 7 days a week and had a little corner alcove dedicated to promoting the museum concept. After many months of organizing and putting together a logo design contest won by Ed NavaEncinitas businessman Paul Rotsheck offered the fledgling California Surf Museum free space in his newly built Moonlight Plaza, on the corner of Encinitas Boulevard and the Coast Highway.
CSM board member Gary Abrams, a surf historian and car buff, took charge, overseeing two exhibits: The property owners, Jim Keenan and Jim Watkins, graciously offered the building and the entire city block on which it sat, rent-free to the California Surf Museum until that time when they would develop the property.
Volunteers kept the doors open, but it soon became apparent that someone needed to be hired to run the growing museum. The board of directors hired its first employee, Rich Watkins, as Museum Administrator, in late Rich, a long-time surfer and Vietnam veteran, brought just the right amount of first-hand knowledge and dedication to the job.
Good Friends, Great History With the large outdoor space, CSM was able to host great gatherings with great food — bringing together many surfers and friends of all ages.
Over the years, dozens of swap meets, birthday bashes, and luaus in honor of various surfing luminaries were held on that lot. This small museum was quickly becoming a gathering place for people interested in surf history.
High Visibility on Coast Highway Although the location across from Oceanside Pier was everything, the building was neither structurally sound nor weather-tight, and in the City of Oceanside — having taken notice of what we were doing and how many visitors we drew annually — offered the California Surf Museum new space at the corner of North Coast Highway and Pier View Way, formerly a Rexall Drugs.
Although the space was much smaller, and there was no area for outdoor entertaining, in CSM moved to the highly-visible corner, where we stayed until This building needed lots of work too to make it usable for a museum, and again numerous volunteers donated countless hours and tracked down supplies to transform the space.
Clothing company No Fear gave a generous donation that helped us construct a pleasing interior. Glenn Sundby donated exhibit display cases he had used in his Gymnastics Museum; these helped define the exhibit space.
The doors officially opened at North Coast Highway on July 5, Once happily configured, CSM put on some terrific exhibits, held booksignings, had special guest appearances, annually recognized a major surfing legend, and continued to build a strong member base.
With the help of longtime supporter John Elwell, CSM published a photo book inSurfing in San Diego, the first attempt to document the history of surfing in the county, based on the stories and images CSM had been collecting for almost two decades. A True Museum Quality Space: Once construction was complete, CSM staff, the board of directors and many volunteers once again put in countless hours to finish the space.This shopping feature will continue to load items.
