Surfing is now California’s state sport and nowhere was that news more joyfully received than at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside. In fact, you could say they were "stoked."
Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill last week designating surfing as California’s official sport. There are many places that could claim surfing as their own, including Hawaii and other major surf spots worldwide. But much of the history of riding the waves has taken place right here in the golden state and it’s celebrated at the surf museum.
Jane Schmause, historian at the California Surf Museum, talks about the history of surfing in California Tuesday on Midday Edition.
