Picks and Pans Review: The Surfing Museum

UPDATED 08/01/1988 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 08/01/1988 at 01:00 AM EDT

Since it opened two years ago, more than 200,000 people have visited this small Santa Cruz, Calif., museum in a lighthouse overlooking Steamer Lane, a famous wave-riding spot. Pitched in sand among pieces of driftwood are boards donated by local surfers. Among them are a 100-pound redwood plank used by surfers in the '20s, the belly-boards of the '30s and '40s along with today's sleek 10-pounders. The chomp marks of a great white shark are on a board donated by a local surfer who lived to tell the tale
