Who would ever have known that the sport of surfing has been taking place along North Carolina’s beaches for more than a hundred years? Come join us for a look at wave riding Carolina style as we discuss the results of research into our state’s role in the history of surfing. From records dating back into the 19th century up to more modern events, Associate Museum Curator Benjamin Wunderly will try to leave no board un-waxed! Free, no registration required for the in-person program, held in the museum auditorium. Or watch online live via the museum’s Facebook page or Zoom.
