Historic surfboards inducted into the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum

Kim Stoner, a historian at the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum, said: The Santa Cruz Surfing Museum celebrates its 35-year history by adding four historic boards to its collection on Saturday. All boards are related to the Santa Cruz area. The Fred Huntboard was built by Hunt himself in the 1930s. Hunt was an avid surfer born in San Diego at the Santa Cruz Surfing Club. Club members found a board in Nevada with a donation from the Hunt family. Barry Cooper, a member of the Santa Cruz Surfing Club with a Fred Huntboard from Nevada, said: Don McPherson’s balsa board and 50’s and 60’s wetsuits are now part of the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum collection. McPherson shaped the board from wood obtained from a storage yard in the San Francisco Bay Area after World War II. After being stored in the McPherson family garage in Aptos for over 50 years, the boards and suits are now donated to the museum. “It’s very exciting. The surfing museum makes a lot of sense to us, and to growing up in Santa Cruz myself, and this is my favorite place,” the family donated two boards and a wetsuit. Claire Callahan (McPherson) said. 50’s / 60’s. The modern “Jay Moralilty Mavericks Gun” board is also part of the museum’s collection. Morality was born in Georgia, but grew up in Santa Cruz, who bumped into the ocean at an early age. He is known for surfing the Mavericks. Club members want to tell history to passing surfers and non-surfers. “I think they get a perspective on how surfing first evolved. It’s great to see the community appear this way,” Stoner said. The museum is open Thursday to Monday from noon to 5 pm.
