Fifty years ago, Southeastern North Carolina’s modern era of surfing began on the peripheries of local beach culture. Since then, surfing has evolved into a complex sport and lifestyle, enticing a growing number of individuals each year to pick up a board and hit the waves. Throughout this time, UNCW has remained an increasingly popular destination for students seeking to further their education while having access to a quality surfing environment. This exhibit highlights the golden anniversary of surfing in our region through the photography and experiences of UNCW students and alumni.
