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.
