“Hanging Ten” in the North Shore Marketplace, the Haleiwa Surf Museum is dedicated to the pastime of surfing, its history and its impact on world culture. Officially named the North Shore Surf and Cultural Museum, this charming shrine to surfing and surfing culture is curated by a lively storyteller named Hurricane Bob. Much of the focus of this museum lies on the surfing history and culture of the North Shore. The collaection of surfboards alone is incredible, but the museum abounds with surfing-related memorabilia: records, collectible bottles, photos, videos and posters.
