Spent about an hour visiting the museum and talking with the owner. His collection is superb with my interest being on the 70"s and 80s' and specifically Kryptonics. We discussed his upcoming book highlighting the origins of the company and how their wheel line was born. It was a fun visit

Not being a skateboarder, no idea about the history and technology of skateboarding. Fun place to snap a selfie or two.

Donate people! Great collection of unique and classic skateboards. Old Powell Peralta, Santa Cruz, Sims, Tony Hawk, and Steve Caballero boards. Can't wait until they're able to grab some unique 90's stuff for their collection. My wife and I were amazed at the amount of people that didn't give a dime to tour the small museum. Please donate when you... More

The Skateboard Museum, run by Jack Smith, is worth a trip to Morro Bay. Amazing collection of skateboards, showing how the sport has evolved over the decades. Some seriously cool foam-core slalom boards in the 70's that I had never heard of before. We were there for the 4th of July, when they hold the Morro Bay Mile, a push... More

If you remember a skateboard of any shape or size it's probably on display here at the museum. Great stop along the embarcadero.

I saw the Skate Board just like the one I had in the 60s. It's exciting to see how far they have evolved. They also have the largest Skate Board I ever seen.
