For one day, skateboarders will take over the world! Imagine 20 million-plus skateboarders all riding at the same time! That will be the scene on the first day of Summer, June 21...also known as Go Skateboarding Day. Above all else, it's a day for skateboarders to forget about school, work or other responsibilities and just skate. It's also an opportunity for those who've never been on a skateboard to grab a friend and join in.
The first annual Go Skateboarding Day last June caught on quicker than anyone imagined. Skateboarders held events throughout the Americas, Europe, Australia and Japan. Some of those events included backyard jams, skatepark sessions and impromptu street missions.
Last year was just the beginning of the grind heard around the world. This year, Go Skateboarding Day is going to be even bigger and more exciting, so go to your local skate shop to find out about events in your area, or visit IASC.
