added to the website on Apr 15, 2012

The Museum of British Surfing was delighted to welcome its 1,000th visitor on Saturday April 14th.

London surfer Matt Philpott walked through the doors straight from a surf session to be presented with one of the museum’s new organic t-shirts to mark the milestone.

The museum opened just 8 days earlier in its new permanent home in the main Caen Street car park in Braunton. The busiest day so far was Easter bank holiday Monday with 230 visitors in just six hours.

The Museum of British Surfing is now open from 11am to 5pm from Tuesday to Sunday (closed Mondays, except bank and school holidays). All proceeds from entry fees and commercial operations go into running and developing the charity’s work, both in UK surfing history and in the local North Devon community.
