For the record this was kept under wraps since the city didn't allow a Skateboard Museum in this location because of parking and a few neighbors that always give Novak a hard time. So it is really the Santa Cruz Skateboard Showroom. It won't be open to the public for awhile because of permits and other paperwork. For those lucky few enjoy. And for my team mates that didn't make it. You suck. Just kidding. Skaters they have to give each other shit. That's how we roll.
My husband Greg Foy (Foy Construction) built the walls and other parts of this so it was not uncommon to run into each other working on the museum.
BIG thank you to Ed Economy for lending Cliff Coleman's original Downhill board used at Signal Hill, Steven Pizzo for his many vintage Santa Cruz Skateboards, Bill from Bill's wheels who let Mark go on a regular bases and grab boards, Jamie Hart who's classic banners above the half pipe wall on the fence remind us of contest days and the Hester Series. Kathleen (Kathy) McLean for keeping us on track and staying on the original path. You were missed.
