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 director Jack Smith, his wife Cathy and local skateboarding enthusiasts. Please visit our Facebook page for photos and news about past and upcoming events.
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. 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.
What We Need & What You Get!
Our goal with this fund raising effort is to raise enough money to pay 2013’s rent in advance. That amount is $12,000. 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. Any funds raised will be applied directly to the museum's rent. Having the rent paid will allow us to 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.
