The North Carolina Surfing Hall of Fame (NCSHOF) exists at the intersection of Surfing Past, Present and Future. As North Carolina’s coastal university, it is no surprise UNC Wilmington ranks among the nation’s best colleges for surfers. The North Carolina Surfing Hall of Fame has partnered with the University of North Carolina Wilmington to honor champions of surfing and champions of life. 

 

The UNCW Department of History teaches a course about the history of surfing, tracing the cultural, technological and economic aspects of its transformation from a Polynesian folkway to a global multi-billion dollar economic force. The Department of Physics and Physical Oceanography offered a course about the physics of surfing.
