“China Beach: Surfing During the Vietnam War and the Healing
Power of Wave Riding”

Corpus Christi is fortunate to be home to the Texas Surf Museum which
opened in 2005. The museum explores surfing’s general history and the
Lone Star State’s unique place in that history. 

 

Corpus Christi is fortunate to be home to the Texas Surf Museum which opened in 2005. The museum explores surfing’s general history and the Lone Star State’s unique place in that history.

Brad Lomax, President and CEO of the Water Streets Restaurants, was most instrumental in the development of the Texas Surf Museum.

A previous exhibit, ‘Wave
Warriors” honoring Texas military veterans who surf, caught the attention of the California Surf Museum in Oceanside. That museum has loaned the “China Beach” exhibit to be in the Texas museum for a year.

 

The Texas Surf Museum is located at N. Water Street in downtown Corpus Christi. Admission is free, but the museum appreciates
donations. Hours are 11:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. daily with hours on Sunday being 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. The phone number is 361-882-2364.
