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!

KHVT Picture Day - August 29th

The KHVT will be featured in Born Ugly (Issue #8) if we can get them some content to work with in time. So, this is where we need your help.

EVERYONE: Show up this Sunday afternoon (August 29th) and rip it up! We will be down there taking what photos we can, but we also encourage all local photographers and skaters to come on out, skate, take photos, be merry and help us show how great the St Louis DIY scene really is.

PHOTOGRAPHERS: If you have photos from Kingshighway that you would like to contribute to this 8-page article send us your photographs (along with the your name and the name of the skater) to khvtmedia@gmail.com by September 7th. There is still time to get some shots before the deadline so grab your camera and a ripper and get down there and take some photos. This is a free mag so there will be no pay, but it would be a good portfolio builder and will help us raise awareness of Kingshighway.

SKATERS: If you have photos of yourself from Kingshighway, send us your photographs (along with the name of the photographer and your name) to khvtmedia@gmail.com by  September 7th.

Thursday Night Lights - September 2nd

It's that time again to come out for another night session on Thursday, September 2nd. So, come on down and show us what you've got on the new vert wall! Or, try your luck on the riddler! Either way it will be a fun session, as usual.

The Turf Skate park was a Midwestern skate mecca from the 70's to the early 90's before it was covered due to skateboardings near death then, now some vigilantes just like us are fighting to revive it! Check out there saga at http://www.wiskate.com/ and see what you can do to help out at Save the Turf or the newly formed Milwaukee Skateboard Association pages on Facebook. Lend a hand to our brothers to the north and maybe some day you will have a chance to skate history!
