CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Legendary surfers from Coastal Bend share history at the new Texas Surf Museum in Corpus Christi.
Local surfers Pat McGee and Brad Lomax have surfed for a lifetime. McGee had his own surf shop for many years and now all of the vintage memorabilia are on display. Unlike a traditional museum where you can just admire the collection, the Texas Surf Museum lets you buy anything you want from vintage surfboards to stickers.
“The surf community along the Gulf Coast is amazing. We saw a lot of familiar faces today, whether or not they buy something that offers great support,” said Gavin Snider, director of operations at the Texas Surf Museum.
The museum is located in downtown Corpus Christi on Water Street. It is open six days a week Tuesday through Sunday. You can keep up to date with the Texas Surf Museum on social media and their website.
