‘Surfing Miami’ exhibit hosted in Cocoa Beach at Florida Surf Museum

The “Surfing Miami” exhibit at the Florida Surf Museum in Cocoa Beach is on display through March with a grand opening celebration from 7-9 p.m. on Dec. 11

Windex-colored water, pastel-painted buildings and bronze bodies typify South Beach. But lost in the world of models, muscles and “Musica Latina,” the now-glamorous area of Ocean Drive proved to be a big push for surfing’s evolution, starting in the 1930s.

“It’s a very important part of Florida surfing history, especially near a big town, and all the tourists,” said John Hughes, executive director of the Florida Surf Museum in Cocoa Beach, and host of  “Surfing Miami: A Definitive Look at Surfing on Miami Beach.”

The “Surfing Miami” exhibit’s grand opening takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 11, and will remain on display through March, 2022.

Much of the Florida Surf Museum’s exhibit is attributed to the comprehensive book, “Florida Surfing: A Photographic History,” by South Florida surfer Paul Aho, with assistance from his buddy, Ron Faulds, and murals from Florida Atlantic University.
