The annual Morro Bay Skateboard Classic race, held in downtown Morro Bay each year during the Harbor Festival, is cancelled for 2020.

Due to ongoing restrictions on public gatherings and an abundance of caution surrounding COVID-19 cases in SLO County, organizers of the race, Gary Fluitt and Jack Smith have cancelled the October race.

“After discussing it with the City and racers who were needing to make travel plans, we decided it would be best to cancel the event and set our sights on 2021,” said Gary Fluitt. “We’re going to miss having our friends in town for that weekend, but it’s not looking good for our county at the moment and October is going to be here before you know it.”
