Our Mission

Founded in 2013, Skateboarding Heritage Foundation® is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of skateboarding's history and culture through the Skateboarding Heritage museum, as well as creating new conversations about skate and surf culture through educational programs and community outreach. SHF produces world-class exhibitions, collaborates with other museums and galleries, consults and administers the preservation of historical sites and structures, and is involved in a variety of other projects that include public presentations, books, films, and web-based media. SHF also houses an ever-growing collection of boards and vintage equipment, photography, film, video, memorabilia, and other artifacts.


We embrace the full range of skateboarding’s history and development and seek to preserve it, including but not limited to historic places, skateboards, photographs, film, and other objects of historic or cultural value.


From legacy skateparks and other landmarks, to boards and equipment, as well as documentation and artifacts that include printed matter, photography, film, video, and art, or any other objects of cultural value, we work with government agencies, museums, companies, groups, and individuals to help protect and conserve these valuable historical artifacts for future generations.


Through inspiring exhibitions and outreach programs that attract and engage adults, children, and families, we are dedicated to fostering an understanding and appreciation of skateboarding as a sport, culture, and lifestyle. Services we provide include design, production, and collaboration, in addition to research assistance and loans from our collection and library.


Through advocacy, fundraising, and promotion, we cultivate and maintain a community of engaged, committed, and cherished supporters who value the Skateboarding Heritage Foundation as an indispensable asset.
