What we're about

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 NJ & NYC Ghostskate Season runs from April / May (when the weather warms up past 50deg F) till the end of November.
