    This year will be our 11th year of doing the Skate Unity fundraiser! 
    We've handed out a bunch of blank skateboard decks to local artist and their work will be auctioned off to help provide skateboarding opportunities for the kids of Central Minnesota.  The boards will be on display at The White Horse (located in downtown St. Cloud) from Friday March 24th through Saturday April 1st. 
    This year's proceeds will fund the St. Cloud Skate Camp, a free skateboard camp for locals kids that want to try skating, at St. Cloud Skate Plaza this summer.  As well as build a few skate ramps for free local skateboard events throughout the year.
    You will be able to bid on the boards all throughout the week, and we invite you to
    come hangout with the artists at The White Horse on evening of April 1st (8pm-10pm) for the closing ceremony, swing down and score yourself and awesome piece of art and help your local skate community all in the same night!
    Highest bidders of each board will be notified on Sunday April 2nd, and they can pick-up/pay for their boards at The Youth Shelter Supply.

  • May Skate Camp Photos

    We would like to thank all of the dedicated parents, skateboarders, and artists in our community that have made this event possible and a success these past few years. Every year we put on a free skate camp for the St. Cloud area to help skateboarders gain skills and knowledge no matter their age, gender, or ability. Because of the growth of interest and funding for the Skate Camps, this year we are holding two camps at the St. Cloud Skate Plaza. Here are a few photos of our first Skate Camp event this summer. We encourage even more skaters to show up at our next camp on June 4th!
