Launch is a non-profit organization based in Fort Collins, Colorado. The focus of Launch is to keep the culture of skateboarding alive through hands-on workshops, a museum of over 200 skateboards, a skateboard magazine library, and a +2000 sq ft indoor skatepark. Since we started our organization in 2011, our goal has been to simply preserve the culture of skateboarding with no other hidden agendas. We have been able to keep our indoor skatepark open to the public with support from the local skate community, grant-funding and through hosting a variety of annual fundraisers.

The collaborative efforts of our local skateboard community helped make our ramps what they are today. Each ramp in our park was designed and built by friends and volunteers. The original ramp was constructed in October 2012 using recycled material from two local backyard ramps and has be evolving since.
