Skateboarding Laws & Regulations in San Diego, CA

Read About Skateboarding and Longboarding Laws and Regulations in San Diego, California.

San Diego, California has been a popular city in the skateboard scene since the mid-1970s and since the city’s first skateboarding park opened to the public in Carlsbad in 1976. The city offers many skateboarding venues, including skate parks that are operated by San Diego Parks and Recreation. Many skateboarding companies and professional skateboarders have called San Diego their home throughout the years.

While San Diego may be one of the go-to places for skateboarding, there are several laws and regulations involving the sport that one has to consider. Here are the vehicle codes as they pertain to skateboards in Southern California and San Diego. 

Here are State of California skateboarding laws:
  • Anyone who is younger than 18 shall not operate a skateboard or be as a passenger on one while traveling on a street, bikeway, public bicycle path, or trail unless the individual is wearing properly fitted and fastened helmet the standards of either the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), or standards subsequently established by those entities.
  • Any helmet that is available for sale for use by anyone operating or acting as a passenger of a skateboard, in-line or roller skates, any safety helmet shall be conspicuously labeled in accordance to constitute the manufacturer's certification that the helmet conforms to the applicable safety standards.
  • No one shall be permitted to sell for use by an operator or passenger of a skateboard any safety helmet which is not of a type meeting safety requirements.
City ordinances in San Diego that pertain to skateboarding:
  • It is unlawful for any person riding on roller skates or by means of a skateboard or similar device to go upon an open roadway in the City of San Diego, or upon the sidewalk or public plaza in any business district, or upon any inclined surface area of any City–owned or privately owned parkade where signs forbidding such activity are displayed at the ground level elevator entrance and at each vehicular entrance to the parkade.
  • Between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., it is unlawful for any person riding on or by means of a skateboard or similar device to go upon: “any portion of public rights–of–way within the Mission Beach community, any portion of the most westerly public walkway between San Diego Place on the south and Law Street on the north, known as Ocean Front Walk or Ocean Boulevard, or to go upon the public walkway immediately adjacent to the bay extending from the Mission Beach community, around Sail Bay, through Crown Point Shores.”
  • Any person riding on a skateboard on any sidewalk or right of way not open to public vehicular traffic shall exercise due care and shall yield the right of way to pedestrians.
  • No person shall go on a skateboard on any sidewalk or right of way not open to public vehicular traffic at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent having due regard for pedestrian traffic and in no event at a speed.
  • Except for school–sanctioned events authorized by a school site administrator, no person shall ride any skateboard, roller– blade, roller–skate or similar type device on any property owned by any school district which has a policy prohibiting such use, and displays a sign at the main entrance to the property informing visitors of the policy.
Skate parks are unsupervised, but are open daily. All skate parks are open from 10 a.m. until dusk daily, except for Carmel Valley, which is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. 

Skateboarding Rules as they apply to San Diego Skate Parks 
  • Any child younger than 12 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian when at the skate park. 
  • Skaters must be in full safety gear in order to use the skate park. This means helmets, knee pads and elbow pads designed for skateboarding. 
  • Only skateboards, roller skates, roller-blades, and in-line skates are permitted in skate parks. No other devices or equipment is permitted in the facility. 
  • Any spectators or visitors who are not skating must stay outside the fenced area. 
  • No alcohol, smoking, food, drink, or glass containers are permitted inside the skate park. 
  • Graffiti and littering in the skate park are prohibited. 
  • Any unauthorized jumps, obstacles, or ramps are prohibited inside and outside the skate park.
  • Animals are not allowed in the skate park. 
Skateboarding laws are subject to change, so it is important to periodically check for the latest regulations.

MuirSkate x Sector 9 Dropper MSX Artwork Design Contest



We’re big fans of collaboration around here! Collaboration in the longboarding and downhill skateboarding scenes allow us to grow as a community and as individual skaters. Without getting too sappy about all this collaboration goodness, we’re gonna jump right in to letting you know that we’re running an Artwork Design Contest with our friends at Sector 9 Skateboards! We’ve called upon the Sector 9 crew to produce a limited number of special edition Dropper MSX decks made exclusively for MuirSkate! Being that we spend the majority of our time on our boards (and assembling yours!) we figured it would be best to let a fellow skater and/or artist handle the graphical goodness on our behalf! This is where you come in; We need a graphic! There’s no official “prompt” for this graphic contest, but (as always) we’re lookin’ for something rad, bold, and exciting to slap on this deck! The only graphical requirement we’ve got for this contest is that the MuirSkate & Sector 9 logos must be present in all submissions. (You’ll get “bonus points” for incorporating the logos in a creative/natural way!) That’s a large enough “wall of text” for now… Read on for the specific details of this contest!


The MuirSkate x Sector 9 Dropper MSX Artwork Design Contest has already begun and ends at 11:59pm PST on July 10th!


Selecting the Winner: The Sector 9 crew will select one winning design for this contest. In addition to seeing his or her own artwork on the Dropper MSX Deck, the creator of the winning graphic will receive a Dropper MSX complete with Gullwing Reverse trucks and 65mm Matt K Signature wheels along with two Dropper MSX decks. (Gotta have a backup and one to hang over the mantle, right?!)
Create your artwork by following all of the steps listed below:

  1. Check out the Dropper template to get a feel for the shape. (The file is "00.SECTOR_9-DROPPER_MSX-TEMPLATE.ai" in the contest download pack!)
  2. Get to work creating your masterpiece!
    1. If you work digitally, you can start right away in the Illustrator file or import it into Photoshop! (Just make sure to create your file at 300dpi!) Be sure that your artwork fills the entire "oval" space in the Dropper template to ensure proper coverage!
    2. If you prefer to work in the “analog” fashion (on paper), you may want to print out the template at 100% so you know just how much space you’re working with. (And when you scan it back in, be sure to scan it at the highest resolution possible so that you can have a crispy 300dpi final file!) Be sure that your artwork fills the entire "oval" space in the Dropper template to ensure proper coverage!
  3. Take whatever additional steps are necessary to ensure that your file is print ready upon submission. (This means separating the color layers if you’ve created your piece on paper and scanned it back into a Photoshop document… It could take a while depending on your comfort level, so get started sooner than later!) Be sure that your artwork fills the entire "oval" space in the Dropper template to ensure proper coverage!
Submit your artwork by following all of the steps listed below:
  1. Email your full-res artwork (see technical guidelines below) as an attachment or via a DropBox/WeTransfer/GoogleDrive link to contests@muirskate.com with “Dropper MSX by [your name]” in the subject line.
  2. Share your artwork via Instagram, tag @MuirSkate and @Sector9, and include the hashtag #MSxS9Dropper. (Note: This is not a “voting by likes” contest. Sharing your artwork via Instagram is intended to share the stoke with the community at large and will help us speed up the selection process!)
  3. Wait patiently until the winner is announced on July 17th!

Technical guidelines:

  • MuirSkate & Sector 9 logos must be present in all submissions. You’ll get “bonus points” for incorporating the logos in a creative/natural way! (All necessary logo files can be found in the contest download pack.)
  • Artwork submissions must make use of the “Dropper” template included in contest download pack.
  • Artwork must be submitted as a PRINT READY .PSD (Photoshop) or .AI (Illustrator) file at 300dpi. (A design that requires a lot of work to become “print ready” will be disqualified.)
  • There is no limit to the number of colors that may be used!
  • Multiple submissions are OK!

The MuirSkate x Sector 9 Dropper MSX Artwork Design Contest

ends at 11:59pm PST on July 10th!

(All submissions must be received in our inbox before this time!)
