What does my membership support?
For PSG to continue to operate and work with cities to get skateparks like Lakewood and the new Crooked River Skate Park, we need to cover our insurance, overhead, rent and all around operations. The demand for skateboarding is huge and we currently volunteer 10-30 hours per week to keep up with it. To keep getting free places to skate in the public and providing skateboarding to a wider audience and bringing more pros to demos and sending more skaters to local skateshops we will need to raise our own money to survive.
What do I get for my Skate Kitchen Membership?
We all know that winter skating is a constant pain in the neck that seems to disappear every spring then slam you each October. We felt that some indoor winter skating is the best, most valuable thing we could provide our members. It has taken many years to get to this point but we finally have the first indoor skateboard only, public skate spot in Cleveland.
Can I pay monthly instead of one lump sum?
Right now we are only doing one annual payment for Skate Kitchen Members. Your membership level starts on the date you upgrade or join until the following year on the same date.
Can I bring Dogs?
Not anymore. Since Jan 1,2013 we cannot bring pets of any kind into the facility.
How can I see the Skate Kitchen camera on my phone?
Each Skate Kitchen member gets access to the camera from iPhone/Android app called DropCam. We can send you a link to get access.
