Fresh PMT Gear At Ground Floor Skateboards In Rockford Illinois

About Ground Floor Skateboards: Everything begins on the ground floor. It’s a beginning, the entrance, the start to everything.

The ground floor in skateboarding is you, your board, and the street. There were no pretenses, no delusions just the simple pursuit of fun.
The simple act of rolling hooked us all from the beginning, your Ground Floor.

We are here to bring that back to skateboarding in Rockford.
Whether you are a beginner, advanced, or a seasoned veteran we want to help you maintain that initial innocence, joy, and love for skateboarding.

Thirty years and counting have led me to this; going back to the beginning- Ground Floor Skateboards.

Find Ground Floor: 333 East State Street, Suite 50 Rockford, IL. 61104

Thursday 11-29-2018 – Come stand up for Grant Park Skate Park and enjoy a FREE award winning documentary.

Minding The Gap Columbia College Chicago Grant Park Skate Park

We are having trouble with some NIMBYs (not in my backyard) who keep complaining about the skatepark in Grant Park, so we are taking a positive approach. They are pressing Chicago Alderman, Police, and the Park District to get rid of the skatepark. It’s crazy! These people have the right people listening to them, because they vote and simply do not like the diverse demographic that the skatepark supports.

They have already reduced park hours from 11 pm to 9pm and installed security cameras. This is areal threat to skateparks in Chicagoland. We want to fill the theater which seats 100 people. We want a strong showing to show the NIMBYs and people against outdoor activity, and the skate park in Grant Park that we have the numbers. This is really important and we need to show the Chicago Park District as well.

The key word, here, is attendance! Please come to the theater! Video Trailer (You Tube): HERE
