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

If you live in Southern California or you’re planning to travel there this year, here’s an event you won’t want to miss:

Women On Waves, the California Surf Museum’s 2010 special exhibit, explores many aspects of feminine wave riding. From the Hawaiian surfing Queens 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. At the same time, Women On Waves chronicles the beach fashions women endured or created, the milestones they accomplished and the oft-overlooked influence feminine mystique has on waveriding. Although no exhibition can provide a complete history, the WOW show attempts to document the highlights of women’s contribution to surf culture—but from a feminine perspective that delights both men and women alike.

Location: California Surf Museum, 312 Pier View Way, Oceanside, CA  92054
