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!

Future of KHVT

With the looming threats of our bridges demise, KHVT has been feverishly searching out new spots to develop. If anyone has ideas, spots or private property that you think would be a good place for a new park please email us at kings.highway@yahoo.com. Also we are in need of some more members to our team. We are currently looking for anyone with experience in grant writing, accounting, fundraising, sales/donation solicitation, skateboarding advocacy and non profit work to help take our organization to the next level! We are a 501c3 accredited non profit organization but at this time we are only excepting volunteers. If you are interested or know someone that might be, send a brief informal resume of experience that would apply to kings.highway@yahoo.com . Helping us out would be a great resume builder and will give you a chance to give back to our community! We will take all the help we can get! We have a massive site in the works for a new park but we are still in the early stages so i cannot give out any details just yet but know that St. Louis skateboardings future is looking very bright, or should i saw dark?!?!? hint hint.....   B.

*** Winter Clean Up tomorrow, Sunday Jan. 9th ***

SUNDAY, JAN. 9, Noon

Things are looking pretty rough down at the bridge which is to be expected considering the cold conditions but we still need to take care of whats ours! Come out tomorrow around noon and help us get it together. There's plenty to do including painting, sweeping and as usual PICKING UP TRASH! Come prepared for the weather and bring gloves, painting supplies such as rollers trays paint, brooms, trash bags or anything that you think we will need. I'm sure a sick session will follow which is reward enough for anyone! Thanks!

*** Elwood destroys STL!!!! ***



Sick video from when Elwood came through town last year! Lots of good tennis court footage which is kinda sad but I like the way the guys at Pretty put it, " Let Mr. Kenny Anderson's line in the above video be the proverbial cherry on top of a long and joyous era of skateboarding in St. Louis."

St. Loser tease from Infinity!!!!


Jason and the boys over at Infinity after over 10 years in the game finally bring'n it! Can't wait!! Looks SICK!

A sad day for St. Louis skateboarding......




Pour some out for your lost homie.... The Delmar tennis courts, a legendary DIY  spot in St. Louis, is almost a memory... It is indeed a sad day for St. Louis skaters.
