Great History of boards

A great history of skateboards and skateboard films. Jack the owner was very informative and helpful. Well worth going to if you skateboard or are interested in skateboarding.

Small but interesting skateboard museum with antique boards and bit of historical items and newspaper clips. A fun place to visit for a few minutes along the waterfront. Some nice t-shirts and other items for sale.

This is one of the coolest places to visit in Morro Bay in my opinion. The owner is an old skateboarder like myself and he is very knowledgable and the boards bring back lots of great memories for me. Definitely worth a visit and buy a shirt to help support this great little museum.

Throw a couple bucks into the donation box and spend 15 minutes walking around. The man at the desk on the day of our visit was VERY enthusiastic and interesting. A small but quirky mini "museum" that brought back some memories

More stuff to see and know about skateboards than you probably would ever imagine. Worlds biggest skateboard.......wonder how many people they could put on it? All kinds, sizes and wheels. Very cool place to look at... More

You can't help but like this place with all your childhood memories of skate boards. From the early days till now it's a great collection to see. Did not realize at the time we was actually land surfing.

If you were a skater in the 1980's as I was it brought back some great memories. Great place and nice guy who runs/owns it.
