One highlight includes Bethany Hamilton's shark bitten surfboard. She was the young surfer who lost her arm to a shark attack in 2003, which became the subject of the film Soul Surfer.
I had just come from photographing surfers near the Oceanside Pier and the California Surf Museum was the perfect cap to the afternoon. I also picked up an old copy of Surfer magazine and a few vintage postcards as souvenirs. Despite still knowing very little about surfing, from a visual standpoint I'm hooked on the culture.
