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 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.

Ghostskate Together Initiative - Info & Location Form

Ghostskate Together Initiative: Goal: To bring skateboarders together in a safe social distancing manner that continues to safeguard our members. To maintain Ghostskate’s mission to bring people together and make the skateboarding community more accessible, while reducing our members exposure during a pandemic Description: The Ghostskate Together Initiative will collect skate spot locations from our members. These skate spots will be used to post a possible meetup. These meetups will only be officially scheduled when they have at least 5 members signed up and at most 10 members in total. These meetups will be presented and curated through the Ghostskate Meetup groups. 1-2 members of each event may be asked to be the contact person for the other members signed up, to help everyone find the skate. The events will have a minimum number of 5 people signed up to create an official event. This is so that our members can feel confident that they will not be in one on one situations with a stranger. By using a minimum of 5 signups we hope not to have a group skate smaller than 3 people. To help maintain visibility and accountability between our members we encourage everyone to post to Instagram, Twitter or facebook where and when they are out skating. Members should tag #Ghostskate and #GhostskateTogether, so that all of the group's posts will be easy to find. Submitting and Viewing the Skate Spot List: Submissions to the Skate Spot List can be done here through Airtable: https://airtable.com/shr1FnlXDfssOp166 View the Skate Spot Location Airtable here: https://bit.ly/2Vq3wHr Timing: We are hoping to start collecting spot locations through the end of June and start posting Ghostskate Together Initiative events in July. Community Values to Observe: Please observe the below Ghostskate Community Values when joining any Ghostskate event.
