Over the last 10 years the photo collection of the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center has grown to over 200,000 images far surpassing the photo collections of any other surfing museum. As our photo collection has grown, and the word of our collection has spread, we have received requests for prints from all over the world. Book publishers, magazine publishers, researchers and film makers all use our archives.
While we do not “own” all of our images, we do represent the majority of our donors when it comes to the licensing of photo rights. We have a responsibility to protect the photo rights that belong to more than 140 different donors.
We will be featuring a wide variety of photos on the following pages, and we will be adding new photos every few weeks, so please check back often.
