GettingTogether to Make Skateboarding Even More Accessible

To continue our mission of bringing together the skateboarding community, we launched a new organizing structure that utilizes smaller community gatherings and reduces contact risks; We call it The Ghostskate Together Initiative. We want everyone to be able to get the benefits of skateboarding with their community, while maintaining safe social-distancing.

Suggest a Spot

Submit your skate spot to the Ghostskate Together Initiative by filling out: THE SKATE SPOT FORM. Suggest a spot in NY, NJ or Chicago that can hold up to 10 skaters safely. The best spots are in low traffic park spaces with smooth pavement clear of rocks and debris.

How It Works

The Goal of the Initiative

The goal of the Initiative is to gather in a safe, socially-distanced manner by reducing the group sizes and the distance our members have to travel to attend an event. After community members suggest a local spot, Ghostskate creates a MeetUp event to bring together local skaters. The skates are capped at 10 attendees to maintain a safe group size.

Community Values

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.

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.
