Where to Skate Nude Legally

A directory places around the world where you can skate nude legally plus tips for avoiding injury when you skate naked and how to behave when you are skating at a naturist resort where nudity is commonplace.

Skating naked on your local bike path is probably not a good idea, and you could be arrested for it in many parts of the world (for example, in the United States!). Quite a few people have tried it, and some of them quite publicly - like the 40 skaters who posed in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park for Jack Gescheidt and Sandy Snakenberg's fifth Nude Skating Photography Session in July of 2001.

But skating legally in the nude IS possible and it happens every day, at hundreds of naturist resorts around the world. In fact, inline skating is a very suitable activity for naturist or clothing optional resorts, because it is not a contact sport (meaning physical contact between the participants is not required).

Tips and Advice

Safety: If you decide to try skating in the nude, be sure to wear all of your body protection, and then some. What to protect? Think of the parts of your body you would LEAST like to have scraped across asphalt at a high rate of speed. And don't forget to wear plenty of sunscreen!

Etiquette and Courtesy: Naturist resorts and clubs typically have guidelines such as the following:
  • No photos of anyone without permission
  • Conduct must be appropriate for a family setting
  • Behave as if you were at a non-nude resort
  • No talking about who you saw at the resort

    Places to Skate Nude Legally

    Here are a few of the many places around the world where it is possible to legally skate nude.

    Sun Birds Sun Club (Texas USA)
    FROM A MEMBER: "Personally, I have skated, ridden bicycles, juggled, played tennis, played ping-pong, played volleyball and basketball, ridden a jet-ski, piloted a sailboat, and much more at fine nudist resorts across the U.S. and around the world."

    Sandpipers Resort (Texas USA)
    FROM THE MANAGEMENT: "Nearly all of the streets at Sandpipers Resort are paved and available for inline skating. We have no restrictions except to caution skaters to respect the rights of pedestrians. My advice to people wishing to try nude skating is to remember that falling is inevitable, and that road rash on any part of the body is not fun. Also remember that appearing to be a menace to pedestrians will usually lead to restrictions."

    Healthy Hides of Houston (Texas USA)
    FROM ???: "Our advice for people who would want to try nude inline skating is to not take "nude" literally. Just as "nude" water-skiers wear flotation devices, nude inline skaters should wear appropriate protective gear. Nudists like to be free of restrictive clothing, but are not reckless regarding their personal safety".

    Hidden Valley Resort (Georgia USA)
    "People often skate nude here. Inline skating is on paved streets and parking areas, but you will be sharing it with pedestrians and golf carts. Wear knee pads."

    Paradise Lakes Condos I (Florida USA)
    FROM THE MANAGEMENT: "You may skate at Paradise Lakes in the nude. We have paved roads that most of our residents use to rollerblade, ride their bikes or just jog!"
    FROM A RESIDENT: "We have a lot of inline skaters (not hardcore jumpers, but exercise types) that skate naked on the grounds. There are streets to skate on and the security of the walls allows for peace of mind."

    Bare Necessities Travel Agency
    "I would say that the road near the Resort in Bonaire is deserted enough most of the time, that you could skate nude and probably get away with it. I would, however, suggest that you carry a coverup, such as a pareo, in case a car should come along".

    Rent a Roller Rink or Skate Park

    Nude skating is also possible at roller skating rinks. Many rinks regularly rent their facilities to naturist clubs and resorts for nude skating sessions. I suppose it would be possible to rent an entire skate_park for nude skating sessions, but aggressive skating in the nude is NOT something I would recommend (although Adam Bender skates in the nude on the T-Bone Films Hoax 5 video, and does a naked miszou on Joe Navran's F.O.R. video).

    I know that just about any rink will rent out to groups, even nudist groups. There is a nudist resort called Live_Oak_Resort north of Brenham, Texas that rents the roller rink in Brenham"

    Any More Places to Skate Nude?

    If you have any naturist resorts in your area that have enough pavement for skating and where skating is permitted and encouraged, please send a note to info@skatelog.com. Please also let us know if you know about a region, country or city where skating nude in public is not against the law.
