Kinghighway is a D.I.Y. skatespot under a bridge in St.Louis, Missouri, USA. Built by local skateboarders. We Skateboarders come together here & build whatever is on our minds to skate. With this motivation in the right direction STL can have a bridge as good as Burnside, or FDR!! We own the tools/knowledge to move barriers & build ramps. It"s all about being creative and having fun! WE NEED HELP!! Bring cinder blocks, dirt, rock, rebar, concrete, mason mix, tools, and work!

Are you new around here?





These kind of bowl, and bridge parks are in every city up and down the west coast, but we don't see love seats, and pool coping pockets like this much around here in St. Louis.    Infact this one may be the first for the "Gateway City".



YOU CAN WRITE ON THIS WALL TOO!!


IF YOU HAVE BEEN ACTIVELY HELPING OUT AT THE KINGSHIGHWAY BRIDGE IN ANY WAY , AND YOU ARE INTERESTED IN POSTING A BLOG HERE...  PLEASE EMAIL KINGS.HIGHWAY@YAHOO.COM ..  TELL US YOUR NAME AND WE WILL SET YA UP WITH A PASSWORD!!

WE NEED YOUR DIRT!

PLEASE BRING DIRT, BRICKS, AND ROCKS TO THE BRIDGE.

Skateboarders with Vigilance


It has been brought to my attention recently the fact of non vigilant skaters roaming under the bridge. I am pooling my energy to get these unknowing rippers some ideas on skatepark building etiquette. Here are some points which may help the current situation at the building site; KHVT, understanding these points will help bring together the awesome force of the St. Louis skateboarding community:

- This is every ones spot to skate and create.
- KHVT is for having positive fun.
- When there is someone working please consider:
1. It is impolite not to offer to help in some way.
2. It is disrespectful not to offer your help, and to sk8 instead.

Respect these common senses and there will be a healthy environment. Get to know the "trolls" under the bridge and communicate thoughts, ideas, and insight to help make this spot even more awesome! I will be posting random stuff here on this blog remotely, waiting to return for more work there. I am thankful for the Skateboarders with Vigilance, KHVT LIVES! -Soup

"What's new at the bridge?"

When the temperature rises above 32F. We could be ready for some concrete.
