SHACC's is Open Mon-Fri, 11-4, Closed on Sat & Sun

Now on Display Through February, 2017

We've put together a selection of historic images from Surfing Heritage's vast collection of over 100,000 photographs, including some from Tom Blake, Warren Bolster, Tim DeLa Vega, John Elwell, Jim Gilloon, Leo Hetzel, Tom Keck, Clarence Maki, Dick Metz, Robert von Sternberg, Ron Stoner and more. These images will be available for purchase in 3 sizes, 8"x10", 11"x14" and 16"x20", with proceeds being split between SHACC and the various photographers. 

We've added some new images—you can check them out on page 3 at SHACC Prints!

Thank you to our sponsors for opening night:
110 Calle Iglesia · San Clemente · CA · 92672



We teamed up with Sustainable Surf and their Waste to Waves program and are inviting all SHACC visitors to help ACTIVATE  the "From Plastic to Fantastic" exhibit, by bringing in their own "trash" (otherwise known as a resource...) to be upcycled or recycled into your next  piece of surf gear–become part of the solution to plastic pollution–everyone who brings in a "resource" to be upcycled or recycled gets entered into a drawing for some of the same products that were on display at the exhibit.

Here are the contest winners:

Karen Sixt wins a yoga mat by SUGA made from recycled wetsuits. 
Steven "Sly Dawg" Chew wins a tail pad made from recycled cork from ReCork
Oded Shakked wins a yoga block made from recycled cork from ReCork
And Jude Matsalla, wins a 6'4" Marko Foam blank.


It's Like Christmas Again!

Long time SHACC supporter and avid surf memorabilia collector, Randy Hild just donated 6 bins containing 150 pairs of vintage surf trunks! Thank you Randy! We'll be posting these to Instagram starting in 2017.


Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
