Sonoma Museum Opens Surfboard Exhibit

Jun 30, 2016
Sonoma Valley Museum of Art

  Surfboards---from rough-hewn slabs of wood to carefully shaped pieces of fiberglass, and from Hawaii to Africa—are all on display in Sonoma this summer.

  Every surfboard in the exhibit has a story behind it—including the one that curator Richard Henvin is holding in the photograph at the right.

Included in the Surf Craft show are rare boards designed by the early and influential board-maker Bob Simmons.
