To Celebrate, Promote & Interpret the Surf Culture
and its Heritage in New Jersey

The New Jersey Surfing Hall Of Fame is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) and a 509(a) public charity. Every dollar we raise goes to defray the cost of advancing our mission of honoring our sport/art and its practitioners, preserving our history and advancing our culture.

We strive to honor our surfers, artists, media/photographers and those with significant achievements in our surf community from Sandy Hook to Cape May. Many of these coastal towns boast world-class surfers and achievements.

With it’s headquarters located at the Tuckerton Seaport Museum at 120 West Main St in Tuckerton, NJ, The New Jersey Surfing Hall of Fame is an historically conscious organization dedicated to preserving New Jersey’s rich heritage of it’s place in the surfing world. We forever enshrine its people of significance who are responsible for its development, culture and creative lore. And therefore we preserve its legacy of historically valuable timeliness, people, images and places in Surfing New Jersey.
