The pictures of the skateboards on the wall at the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica speak for themselves.

“Skateboard: Evolution & Art in California,” a collection of boards brought together by staff curator Michael Trotter with the help of former Z-town skater Nathan Pruitt, is on display Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the converted Victorian home near the corner of Main and Ocean Park. Parking is free. Admission is $8. An 18-minute video called “Skater Dater” is included at the end which really captures the 1960s feel of the sport and culture around Southern California.

Call ahead for more questions: 310.392.8537. It’ll be around until the end of May, 2010.

We’ve got more on everything about it in Sunday’s newspaper edition. It’s bitchin. Swear.
