The local baymen worked on the water, but they also played on it. Many a clammer worked the low tide and surfed the high tide. The New Jersey Surf Museum @ Tuckerton Seaport explores the historic connections to the sport - and the lifestyle - of the New Jersey Surfer. Exhibits in the museum cover the origins of surfing and how it came to New Jersey in 1912. The museum also explores the close connection of surfing to the environment and the science of waves. A large collection of important surfboards is on display along with memorabilia and surf art.
