“I wanted to create a place where children can be active, play with their friends and meet new friends,” said owner Roger Blaas.
Blaas wanted to create a playground where children can be physically active while making friends with other children. He wants to encourage the children to have fun.
“I love children and I love sport. I have worked my whole life with children and sports, so I couldn’t think of anything I would rather do,” said Blaas.
Blaas is originally from Austria and he worked as a ski instructor, trainer, ski school director and hotel manager for many years. As a father and as a former trainer of successful athletes, he firmly believes in sports and playing as a way to bring out the best of each person.
Blaas lived in Pacific Beach in the ’90s and he always wanted to come back and settle down here. He loves the area and wanted to do something nice for the residents of the community.
“We have created this place for local children to come and play every day. Children in Pacific Beach don’t have many places to go and play. Almost nobody has a backyard where their kids can play,” said Blaas.
PB Cyber is created for local children rather than for tourists. Residents may buy a monthly membership at the shop, so kids can come as much as they want to.
