About Outdoor Surfboard Museum in Imperial Beach, California
The Imperial Beach Outdoor Surfboard Museum isn’t really a museum and it really doesn’t even display surfboards, but it is a unique learning exercise that is based on the evolution of surfboards. All along Palm Avenue from Seacoast Drive to Third Street you’ll find full-size tubular steel outlines of surfboards that represent designs from the past. Over 25 different well-known surfboard shapers, including nine from Imperial Beach and the greater San Diego area, are represented. The time span starts with the earliest undated board design from Waikiki Hawaii, then from 1930 all the way to 1985. If you start at 3rd Street and walk down Palm Ave they are in chronological order. Here is a PDF brochure of the board designs along the Outdoor Surfboard Museum. At the end of your walk the street continues to an access that drops down to the north end of sandy Imperial Beach City Beach.
