Surf’s Up at John Wayne Airport (JWA)

An exhibit about southern California surfing history has rolled into John Wayne Airport (SNA) in Santa Ana, California.

Titled, “California’s Orange Coast: 42 Miles of Tradition and Lore,” and sponsored by the Surfing Heritage Foundation, the exhibit uses maps, artifacts and photographs to explore the role surfing has played in Orange County over the past 100 years.

The exhibit is on display through October 27 across from gates 1 through 4 and 11 through 14 in the airport’s Thomas F. Riley Terminal.
