As part of it’s 40th year celebrations, NHS opened it’s new museum in Santa Cruz on Saturday to a packed crowd of skateboarding’s legends. Walking through the museum is like walking back in time through a visual history lesson. Huge thanks to everyone at NHS for their dedication to skateboarding and we can’t wait to see what the next 40 years brings. Check out the video tour!
