Witt started Carlsbad Pipelines on Street Fair weekend in May 1984. Named after his father's plumbing business, Witt's Carlsbad Pipelines has been a cornerstone for the surf and skate community here in North County San Diego. Witt has been privileged enough to work with and sponsor local athletes like Tony Hawk and Taylor Knox as well as many others.

 We've been in business now over 36 years, one block from the beach, helping locals and tourists alike.  We offer beach gear, skate gear, and everything else in between.  Our alumni include Tony Hawk, Taylor Knox, Matt Hensley, Ray Underhill, Chris Miller, Joe Johnson, Adrian Demain, and of course locals like the Barr family, Chuy Reyna, and to many other to list.  Costumer service has always been our strong point whether it be product information, local knowledge, or just a friendly greeting!

 Located in beautiful downtown Carlsbad, California. Carlsbad Pipelines opened in 1984. I had been working retail for Gordon Smith since 1980 and saw the need for a skate/surf shop in Carlsbad, as we had no skate shop at all. My dad‘s underground plumbing business was no longer running and since I loved both the barrel in surfing and half pipes in skating, I created our logo and opened up! As with all small businesses it’s been a 36 year roller coaster, but we’ve survived thanks to a very supportive community and industry!
