Surf’s Up!

December 4, 2012 | By Natalie Tarce

Waikiki’s relationship with surfing goes beyond its sandy beaches and fantastic surfing spots. This neighborhood also houses a unique museum that highlights the impact surfing has on Hawai‘i and the rest of the world. Step into the Honolulu Surfing Museum located at Jimmy Buffett’s at The Beachcomber and you will discover fascinating artifacts that celebrate the unique relationship between the Hawaiian culture and surfing.

Don’t be deceived by the museum’s casual feel, it houses a great collection of surf memorabilia such as vintage surfboards, classic surfing footage, some Hollywood surfing props and a collection of musical instruments unique to Hawai‘i.

So after enjoying a few hours in the sun and catching a few waves in Waikiki, be sure to stop by the Honolulu Surfing Museum to get a glimpse into the rich history of surfing while enjoying some drinks at their full service bar right inside the museum!
