Friday night there's going to be a party in Henderson to celebrate and launch a new non-profit and you're invited!

Meet Gift

Gift Skateboarding is a new non-profit in Henderson, Kentucky that is focused on making the sport of skateboarding available to anyone and everyone regardless of age, gender, or economic status.

Free Skateboarding

Gift hosts Henderson's only totally free indoor skatepark where skaters can borrow loner boards and protective gear if they don't have their own while skating and grinding in a safe environment. They even offer free lessons regularly with some of the city's most experienced skaters.

If you love to skateboard, you need to know that there are some locations where it is actually illegal to boardslide or bonk. Every violation could cost $25, and if the offender is under 18, parents get to pay the ticket.
