Jeffreys Bay is one of the top surfing destinations in the world, so this Surf Museum is well-located to trace the history of the sport. Original newspaper clippings, magazine articles and photographs catalogue local surf heroes, and one can also read about the history of surfboards.
Antique surfboards and autographed memorabilia are on view, and one can learn about the process of surfboard manufacture.
J-Bay is famous for its ‘super tubes’ and museum displays illustrate the evolution of the ride as it progressed from heavy to light boards, and from wood to foam and glass fibre.
The local sport was founded by fearless pioneers and their legacies are documented as surf history here.
