strolled upon this place and it was pretty interesting. seeing all the early styles of boards and how they've evolved was interesting not just for me but my 4 year old daughter was really fascinated by them all. she especially loved the half mannequin on a board. they also sold a lot of funny shirts.

Great place for those of us from the 60's and relive our glory days of skate boards and surf boards. Have a really good display of old skate boards.

You will not find more skate history in a single place anywhere else. This place has lot of 'cool' even if you are not a boarder! Go see it, and for goodness sakes, support it!!

Very interesting and free. If you are interested in the history of the skateboard movement you will enjoy the displays and photos. Fun to take the kids and say, "I had one like that when I was a kid."
