The United Kingdom's first major exhibition mapping the design evolution of skateboards, opens its doors to the public.
Curated by the renowned author, designer, and avid skater, Jonathan Olivares, this exhibit is an immersive journey into the world of skateboarding, showcasing over 90 rare and unique skateboards that illustrate the sport's growth and its influence on design, performance, and community-building.
The museum provides an engaging timeline of skateboarding history, tracing how skateboarders have transformed everyday sidewalks, drained swimming pools, and designated skate parks into their personal canvases for creativity and athletic expression.
Visitors will witness the evolution of skateboard design, from the rudimentary boards of the sport's early days to the high-tech, innovative decks of the modern era.
It's a tribute to the ingenious engineering that has made skateboarding a dynamic and ever-evolving subculture.
