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 throughout the city, skill clinics, social events and competitions. We empower community members to become leaders by giving them a framework to announce their events, a partner to help host the events, and the proper method to hold an open & accepting event that never leaves a member behind.

Please always wear your helmet, when skating with us and all the other times.
We're excited to announce our 2019 season! Ghostskate is excited to provide our schedule of Flatland Skate Sessions, Evening Skates, Beginner Lessons and Group Competitions.
The 2019 Season kicks off in April and May as the weather gets above 50 degrees. Keep an eye on the meetup group as we post our schedule in early 2019.
We'll be spending the winter to plan for our next season so keep an eye out for brainstorming events, outreach emails and season announcements. If you'd like to get more involved check out our website at Ghostskate.com or email Stu at [masked]
See you next season skaters!
Skate Hard, Skate Safe, Have Fun and Wear Your Helmet!
so I was hanging out with my buddy at his new local skate shop trying to figure out a way to promote longboarding in this area [suffolk county, nassau county nyc] and we had the idea to make a contest. we realize that few roads in this area are suitable for a race so we thought we could have a slide jam. Now im just trying to get an idea on how many people we could get out here [stony brook] to enter this slide jam, because if we take the time and invest the money without a good turn out then there wouldnt be much of a point. however if we are able to blow this even up and get around 100 or so people then this event would be a success. there would be prizes involved and plenty of stoke to spread. we have a few gnarly hills in mind and we would need a permit or something to close the road [which im sure would cost money]. There may be an entry fee but Im just trying to get a rough idea of how many people are down for this.
If you're like me and hate cars, but like longish rides...skate uptown with me to the Little Red Lighthouse (under the George Washington Bridge) ...
If anyone is interested I will turn it into weekly evening rides.
