Five Vintage Florida Surf Pics to Check Out at FAU's New Exhibit (Images)

This weekend marks the opening of "Surfing Florida," a visual romp through the history of hanging ten in the Sunshine State. From bodacious beach babes of yesteryear to a teenage Kelly Slater, there's bound to be something that'll catch your attention. 


Hosted by Florida Atlantic University, the exhibit kicks off with a chat by Steve Pezman, co-founder of Surfers Journal and former editor of Surfer. Local bands, including the Cutbacks, will provide the soundtrack on Friday night to help get you in The Endless Summer mindset. 

FAU was nice enough to provide a sneak peek at some of the pictures on display. Check them out after the jump.
