Even if you're not a skateboarder, it's a great place to visit, lots of history dating back 50+ years. Make sure to stop by & say hi to Jack, the owner & local skateboard historian :)

Stopped into this museum while on vacation with our family. Kids enjoyed all the cool boards and parents enjoyed the history of skateboarding and retro boards. Museum is right in Morro Bay by the shops and restaurants and is worth a visit!

Hi, Yes, we would love to display your board. We take boards in on long term loan, that way if you ever want it back, it's yours! Thanks, Jack PS - Do you have a photo of the board.
