About the Museum…

The Morro Bay Skateboard Museum opened in July of 2012. Our mission is to share skateboarding’s history and culture with all ages of skateboarders as well as the general public. The Museum is staffed on a volunteer basis by founder/curator, Jack Smith, his wife Cathy, daughter Lauren and local skateboarding enthusiasts.

In our year and a half we have had thousands of people from all over the world visit the museum. Many of these visitors have told us they made a special trip to Morro Bay just to see the museum. Our visitors include older skaters who enjoy the opportunity to re-visit and share their skateboarding days with family and friends. We also provide an educational experience for younger skaters who are unfamiliar with skateboarding’s long and colorful history. By making a pledge to this fund raising effort you will help to provide a place where the public can learn about skateboarding history and culture.

While there are many incredible private collections of skateboards and skateboarding memorabilia, there are very few places where the public can view skateboarding history so openly. One of the largest of these collections is at Skatelab in Simi Valley, California. Owned by Todd Huber, the Skatelab collection contains over 5,000 boards and a plethora of skateboarding memorabilia. The Morro Bay Skateboard Museum is fortunate to have a great relationship with Skatelab; a number of the boards on display at our museum are on loan from Skatelab’s collection.

We are also working with a growing number of private collectors such as Stephen Pizzo, Greg Hagewood, Dennis Allgeier and Daniel Perkins who are willing to loan the museum portions of their collections for extended periods of time. Legendary skateboarders such as Stacy Peralta, Eddie Elguera, Patti McGee and the Logan Family have graciously loaned the museum historical skateboards and memorabilia. The museum has also received donations of skateboards and skateboard related items from individuals who have visited the museum.

What We Need & What You Get

Our goal with this fund raising effort is to raise enough money to keep the museum open daily throughout the winter months of 2014.That amount is $10,000. Due to the cyclical nature of tourism, we have fewer visitors during the winter months making it difficult to meet expenses, such as rent, utilities and insurance. Your contribution will allow us to meet these expenses as well as expand the museum’s collection of historical skateboarding memorabilia and to offer new and exciting exhibits.

We are offering many different levels of perks. You can check them out in detail on the right side of this page.
