New Surfing Museum Opens in Delray

After eight years of construction, Delray Beach’s new Surfing Museum has officially opened its doors to the public.

 

Located at 255 N. Federal Highway, the new museum pays tribute to Palm Beach County’s vibrant surfing history.

 

As one of South Florida’s premier surfing destinations, West Palm Beach once was home to numerous surfing clubs, such as Possum’s Reef in Riviera Beach, Southeast Surf Syndicate in Lake Worth and Cripple Creek in Boynton Beach.

 

In regards to opening the new museum, trustee Fred Salmon told Palmbeachpost.com, “People are getting older, and we didn’t feel like our history down here was being saved and represented.”

 

The Delray Beach Surfing Museum is open Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
