About Visit Time Warp Surf Museum

In Durban, warm water, an eternal summer, lifeguards and shark nets mean that surf is always up on one of the six main beaches of Durban. Home to international surfing competitions where the world pros handle local tides and venue for the only night surfing competition in the world.

As a popular destination of surfing dreams for most young enthusiasts, The Golden Mile pays tribute to the surfing Gods with the Time Warp Surfing Museum. The museum rides the waves of legends telling the tale of surfing heroes through radio interviews, photographs, pictures and newspaper clippings. Surfing clubs have donated dinkum surfing memorabilia to touch and the tumble of breakers just outside the museum doors keeps the wave riding experience tangible.

The passion for a swell and the feeling of a surf has kept surfers paddling out into the white water only to stand up on blue water powering back to shore, for generations. Responsible for fit bodies and tanned skin this hobby has been loved along KwaZulu Natal coastal shores for over a century. Displays of surfboards from the 1930's show shared sporting advancements and provide a time warp for documenting the barrel. Even the city's corporate climbers keep a surfboard in the car boot in case an opportunity presents itself to catch the Indian Ocean.

Take a time-out at the Time Warp Surfing Museum; take in the surfing history, take on the surf; share waves and secrets with the masters. No wetsuits required for the museum or the Durban beach encounter.
