Nowak with Historian Jane Schmauss…
Inside the California Surf Museum
Yesterday, Nowak was invited to tour the California Surf Museum in Oceanside, California. It was a pleasure meeting historian Jane Schmauss, and the great staff at the museum located at 312 Pier View Way Oceanside, CA . For more information please visit: http://surfmuseum.org

Coincidentally, their current exhibition is dictated to the legendary men and women who shaped the influential and notably competitive Windansea Surf Club. The renowned surf break, Windansea has also been home to Nowak’s studio for almost 3 years, and is the spirit of her current collection. After touring the memorabilia it was ultimately determined that the vibrant individuals that encompass the organization and neighborhood are the soul and backbone of the cherished landmark. The area alone embodies a since of ‘classic Southern California’ surfing community filled with eccentric types of people from all walks of life. The vintage cove and famous palm-covered ‘surf shack’ gives off a cool vibe that makes it undeniable that Windansea exemplifies the most progressive and animated characters in California surf and beach crowd history.
