Women On Waves: Performance, Beach Fashion, and Feminine Mystique in the World of Surfing

Please join us Saturday, March 6, 2010 at the California Surf Museum for the opening of our new exhibit, WOW.

California Surf Museum’s 2010 special exhibit, explores many aspects of feminine wave-riding. From the Hawaiian surfing Queens of myth and legend, to the freshly crowned champions of the women’s pro tour, Women on Waves celebrates more than 300 years of women’s performances in surfing. The immense progress women have attained is a testimony to their talent and tenacity — which has been visible nowhere more than in the surf world.

At the same time Women on Waves chronicles the beach fashions women endured or created, the milestones they accomplished and the oft-overlooked influence the feminine mystique has had on surfing. The dance on waves, the natural connection to the sea, and the grace and beauty which is surfing, shares a decidedly feminine aspect.

The connection between women, the beach and fashion is always fascinating — the exhibits compilation of swimwear not only traces the styles and developments in womens attire, but documents the evolution of freedom and achievement attained over the last century as well. This collection of swim and surf apparel includes several world-class collections from around the nation — and tells an amazing story.

Although no exhibition can attain a complete history, the WOW show attempts to document the highlights of womens contributions throughout the sport and culture of wave-riding. For those who seek a comprehensive overview of the surfing experience, this provides one — but from a feminine perspective that will delight both men and women alike.

The California Surf Museum serves as an international repository and resource center for the lifestyle sport of surfing through capturing, preserving and chronicling its art, culture and heritage for the education and enjoyment of future generations.

Come celebrate the opening of our new exhibit with us, Fuel TV, Roxy team riders and some of the women that are being honored in the exhibit.

Light refreshments will be served.
See you Saturday, March 6th from 1-4pm!
