(Video Below) Did you know that Simi Valley is home to the skateboarding Hall of Fame? Did you know that Skatelab indoor (air conditioned) skate park houses the nation’s largest collection of skateboard memorabilia and historical artifacts? Skatelab Simi Valley is well-known throughout the skateboarding industry and is well known to many of the youth and families of Simi Valley. What many didn’t know is that the skateboarding museum is one of the 10 most visited museums in the area.
I had a chance to talk with the owner Todd Huber and find out a little bit more about his amazing collection of skateboard artifacts; he even took me into his private vault to show me items for future display. Recently Todd’s enthusiasm to preserve the sport, led him to open the Skateboarding Hall of Fame right here in Simi Valley. The next class of inductees will be honored this fall. So next time you drop off the kids or you come down to enjoy the skate park yourself; take some extra time to check out the museum, it really is an amazing collection of the history of the sport of skateboarding.
