Trying to catch a wave, unlike trying to catch raindrops with your tongue, can excite onlookers even when you fail. Absorb this exhilarating aquatic sport with today's Groupon to the California Surf Museum in Oceanside. Choose between the following options:
- For $3, you get adult admission for two (up to a $6 value).
- For $35, you get an Ohana (family) membership, which covers two adults and children under 18 (a $75 value).
Located just blocks from the beach, this newly-relocated museum tunes brainwaves into an enlightening crash course on the culture, history, and legends of this classically Californian sport. Currently on exhibit until mid-February is Women on Waves, which highlights a history of women's professional surfing and their evolving surf culture. Picture legendary boarders doing handstands on more than two-dozen iconic boards, or search for secret pockets in the featured vintage bathing suits. The museum is open every day until 4 p.m., and until 8 p.m. on Thursdays; note that museum admission is free on Tuesdays.
Members receive unlimited admission to all exhibits and invitations to openings and special events, including the gala held at the museum in May. Members are additionally afforded a 10% discount at the museum's store, two T-shirts, a complimentary subscription to its newsletter, and unsolicited high-fives. See the Surf Museum's member portal for more details.
