Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This quirky spot displays more than 500 surfboards, some from the beginning of surfing in New Zealand, and other surf memorabilia—reportedly the largest collection in New Zealand. There's some cool stories, too, about bad surfer dudes like Mickey Dora, convicted fraudster who hid (and surfed) in New Zealand for two years before the authorities caught up with him. The museum is housed in the outlet branch of the Mount Surf Shop, Mount Maunganui's surfing specialist store.
