Ghostskate wants to help people realize their dream of skateboarding by providing regular free community events. We help people join the sport by teaching a proven method of the initial stages of skateboarding and holding a regular calendar of events. The events that we host include beginner lessons, distance skates, skill clinics, social events and competitions. Even if you don't have a board yet you're welcome to join our events and get to know our community. Ghostskate is committed to making skateboarding accessible to all by providing safe spaces and safe community values for all of our members. Find out more about us at Ghostskate.com Please always wear your helmet, when skating with us and all the other times.
The Chicago Ghostskate Season runs from April / May (when the weather warms up past 50deg F) till the end of October.
Community Values to Observe: Please observe the below Ghostskate Community Values when joining any Ghostskate event. If multiple complaints are received about a member, they may be asked to leave the group.
- Our gathering spaces are safe spaces. We won't condone any behavior that intentionally makes another feel unsafe or unwelcome. Lewd behavior will not be tolerated. - Please make friends! We encourage everyone to get to know each other, but this comes with mutual respect. If someone asks to be left alone, or for a behavior to stop, please take it seriously and heed the request. - If you have a question or an idea speak up! We are always happy to help or try a new good idea. - Always wear your helmet when skating & your face mask when around others outside of your household!
