Giving Back to Surfing, Preserving its Culture


Thanks for your past support of the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center (formerly Surfing Heritage Foundation). We've changed our name, but our mission remains the same: To preserve, present and promote surfing's rich and colorful heritage for the appreciation and education of current and future generations.

The Surfing Heritage and Culture Center (SHACC) is truly the surfing world's version of the Smithsonian, with the biggest collection of historic surfboards, surfing related images, and surf culture artifacts. But instead of being government funded, we rely on donations from stoked supporters like you who share our love of surfing...and a lifestyle we wouldn't trade for anything.

To enable SHACC to continue collecting, preserving, safely storing and sharing these priceless treasures, we are asking that you make a tax-deductible* gift to our 2013-2014 Annual Fund Campaign (which closes on March 31, 2014). Whether you give $25 or $25,000, your gift will help make possible a wide array of vital programs and initiatives.

Now that SHACC has upgraded our computer server and storage capacity, your gift will help pay for the scanning and archiving of tens of thousands of additional photographic images in our private collection. This photo collection is the largest of its kind in the world...and growing.

Your gift will also help make it possible for scholars and researchers from around the world to access our Surfing Study Center to create educational curriculum. Your support enables us to provide docent guided tours, so everyone can learn about and embrace surfing's diverse, colorful history.

Thanks to gifts such as yours, you can count on the SHACC to continue to bring important speakers, authors, panels, and films to our facility for people of all ages to enjoy.

Please click on the link above to contribute easily and securely to our 2013-2014 Annual Fund Campaign. Or you may call us at 949-388-0313 to make a donation. (*Your donation is tax deductible to the full extent of the law)

Thank you for giving back to the sport and culture that continues to give us endless enjoyment. I assure you...Your generosity will come back to you in many ways and waves.


In the Spirit of Aloha,

Paul Strauch
Executive Director
