Exhibit Marks Century of Surfing in Va Beach

A celebration of 100 years of surfing at Virginia Beach starts week at the Old Coast Guard Station.

The station chose August to begin honoring James Matthias Jordan Jr.'s introduction of surfing to the Atlantic coast. He received a surfboard from an uncle in 1912.

The Virginian-Pilot (http://bit.ly/NejQ1S) reports an exhibit at the station includes old photos, surfboards and images of some of Virginia Beach's surfing legends.

The exhibit opens Tuesday and runs through Oct. 14. It costs $4 for adults, $3 for seniors and military members, and $2 for children under 18. It's free for children under 6.
