Vans® is now the official sponsor of the Morro Bay Skateboard Museum.
“We are honored and excited to have Vans®, one of the most authentic companies in skateboarding, involved with the museum,” said Founder and Museum Curator Jack Smith. “With Vans® support, we will be able to continue sharing the rich history of skateboarding with skateboarders, young and old, as well as the general public.”
Specifically, the partnership will support the museum’s ongoing programming efforts and general operations.
As a result of the investment by Vans®, Vans® recently designed and installed a two-wall display that commemorates Vans® history in the skateboarding culture.
The museum’s collection includes skateboards dating back to the 1920s, as well as other memorabilia on loan from Stacy Peralta, Tony Alva, Jay Adams’ son, and Seven and Eddie Elguera.
The museum recently moved to its new location which overlooks the Morro Bay Embarcadero and harbor. The address is 783 Market Street. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be celebrating its grand reopening on Saturday, June 22.
