It's a must see place. If you skate or even surf you need to check this place out. I loved the fact they have the worlds largest skateboard in the shop. Also really liked the tribute to Chris Yandall in the shop.

This was a surprise, in that the museum housed several skateboards from my youth, as well as a skeeter! Few people know what a skeeter is. Nice people.

The "museum" is located inside a skateboard shop...but that fact no way should reflect negatively upon the amazing collection of skateboards the owner displays in his shop.

Hi Elizabeth, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. Some visitors mistake the small number of vintage skateboards in the front section of our building as the museum. Did you make it to the back of our space where the actual museum is located. We have over 200 skateboards from the 1950s through 1990s on display. Some of which were... More

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.

This would only have interest for those who care or like skateboarding. They had a good collection of skateboards from the 60's to present

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."
