Go Skateboarding Day, held June 21st of every year, is the official holiday of skateboarding. Skateboarders around the globe celebrate the pure exhilaration, creativity, and spirit of one of the most influential activities in the world by blowing off all other obligations to go skateboarding. Skaters show their love and support for skateboarding by holding fundraisers, contests, protests and demos. We will skate across cities, gather in skateparks, stream into our local skate shops, and some will even revel in the solitary act of skateboarding alone at their favorite spot. All of this brings together the skateboarding community in the grind heard around the world.
We know most skaters do this every day of their lives, but this is just one more reason to switch off your television/computer/video games and go skateboarding.
Skateboarding events can be big or small, just your friends or a full session with your favorite pros, and are often up to you to create. Event locations are disclosed at local skate shops and on http://facebook.com/goskateboardingday, or by checking #goskateboardingday.
