The Board of Trustees of the Surfing Florida Museum has been entrusted with 5000 images from the M.E. Gruber Collection, mostly taken in the 1960's.


We also have the honor to own the “Surfing Florida, A Photographic History” exhibit, produced by Paul Aho and Rod Faulds of University Galleries at Florida Atlantic University. It consists of 72 texts and photo story panels telling the 100-year history of surfing throughout the state. It showcases Florida's surfing talent and a rich history to be shared for generations. Experts have stated that the Surfing Florida Museum has the most impressive collection on the U.S. East Coast.

Surfing history is also being made today, and we frequently receive priceless artifacts from donors, which we exhibit in the Museum with proper attribution.


Memberships in the Museum and the donation of objects are critical ways in which people partner with us to preserve our surfing heritage. Our extensive collection allows us offer a traveling version of our Surfing Florida Museum which duplicates many of our best exhibit items. To inquire about these and other opportunities to share the stoke, please get in touch.
