Great Skateboard displays and history!

Go visit this little gem in Morro Bay and give a few bucks (or buy a t-shirt) to help keep it open. There is some great history and really neat skateboards on display.

I walked in out of curiosity. When I was a kid, there were only roller skates. It was fun to get a historical perspective on what has become such a bi9g sport. The designs and colors were pretty amazing

Very interesting - lots of information on old skateboarders and old skateboards on display. Lots of memorabilia. Your kids and teens will really enjoy it. We did and we are older. Things of interest for sale, too. Beautiful Morro Bay area.

It was like a walk down memory lane. They have so much history and knowledge of skateboarding. Need to go even if you never even stepped on a skateboard. Please leave a small donation so future generations can enjoy this as much as you will. Thanks Jack

If you have a love for skateboarding then this is the place to go. The museum has one of the largest collections of skateboard memorabilia and our kids enjoyed every minute of our visit. The cost is free, however, donations are accepted.

Was very impressed with the Zephyr memorabilia and the Jay Adams memorial. Talked with the owner for a bit and felt at home . Will be back soon to share this great find with... More
