Posted June 21, 2005 by éS

  3. I went to the Chinatown loading dock in Los Angeles, sadly security stopped everyone. Than me and my friend played some switch skate until it got too dark to skate. This was the first time I skated in awhile due to a pinched nerve in my hip which fucking killed. But it felt good to stand on my board again.

  4. man, this day was the worst of my life...
    Even though that I have a new job in a graphic design agency, and the fact that I have all that I want in life: simplicity, generosity, gnarlyness and skills to skate and shit, I HAVE NO BOARD,MAN,....Imagine me , here at Chile, the ass of the world , smelling the streets and wishing to try a 5-0 in a thick ass ledge, with all my friends smiling and enjoying the day...
    well mates, that ain't happen today...so I hope that you guys all over the worldhave enjoyed this day, and also give thanks to koston, penny, Mccrank, Tx, Pj, Cale, Justin, to give me the strenght to keep skating and make myself happy and shit...

    thanx so much!

  9. Well me, my dad, and 2 of my friends went down town to skate here in omaha, nebraska and we went to a manual pad and we were the only ones there and all of a sudden like 20 people showed up and so many technical manual tricks were being hammered down. And it was amazing and fun. But like the usual some guy called the cops and we all took off. So then everyone went down to some other spot where there were all these stairs and that is where all of the hammers went down. And it was a crazy and fun day. There were so many people out skating at one time and it was crazy.

  10. My boys and I skated on a bench out in front of my house. We put it down my drive way and skated it. Then we had a goofies vs regulars game of SKATE. Afterwards we skated down to get some ice cream hitting spot along the way. This all occured in Van Nuys CA. U.S.

  12. For Go Skateboarding Day, me and my friends went to brea skatepark for a demo and bbq hosted by liberty. at first it was boring, then a grip of pros/ams started showing up. pros/ams such as clint peterson, jerry hsu, garett hill, james brockman, chris dobstaff, jon rattray, and tony cervantes. it was fun watching them skate and stuff. got t shirts and autographs.

  22. Met up with the Timebomb crew at the street plaza in Vancouver, B.C. at noon, warmed up there then hit up a couple street spots for some best trick cash (hotspot/Victory Square) some sick shit went down on the giant 8 set there... nollie back heel, backside flip, nollie heel, ollie late back foot flip, 360 boneless, hardflip, switch hardflip... probably missing something.

    THEN... we took over the Georgia Viaduct... (It's a 3 lane highway/bridge) probably 100-150 kids. Completely stopped all traffic as we cruised to strathcona skatepark... most fun I've had in over 15 years of skateboarding. Taking over a fucking highway!!! Yes!

    There was a barbeque at strath... free hotdogs, free redbull... Awesome!

    THANKS TO EVERYONE AT TIMEBOMB IN VANCOUVER! Can't wait till next year

  35. I learned inward heels after probably 2 years. I would have went to Philly but I live no where close to Pennsylvania. It started to rain the most I've seen in 5 years, so I headed off to the skatepark which was free for the day. I have NEVER in my life seen ANYTHING so crowded. All in all, a good day.

  38. I went up to clough state park in dunbarton, NH but I popped a tire. So I spent an hour or so getting a new one put on. I picked up one of my friends and we went into Manchester, NH and skated at Jillians for a few hours. They are wicked nice there they invited us in and gave us free drinks and fries. Then we went around the city looking for some good spots. I parked in a place were you needed to pay the parking meeters. I had no change so i didn't then a meeter cop came around. I noticed her as she was ticketing the car next to me. So I drove off and got some change. Then we went to a loading dock which is one of the best spots in Mancheter. It has a normal 4 and a half foot loading dock. But right next to that there is a drop with a little curb you have to ollie or whatever trick your gana do over. The drop starts at 2 ft and goes up to 6 ft. Then i came back to Goffstown, Nh had a sundae at Mc Donalds. Dropped my friend off. Then skated outside of my house for an hour or two.

  39. yea UK skate day sucked! a bunch of us mitched and went skating but harly anyone else was out.Our shop was meant to have givaways and retro vids but we all left during skate pyshco(if your really old skool youll no this is a vision street wear vid!i think!)As much as tony hawk and Christian Hosoi are inspirational,this was not the time or the place, we want to be amped not educated! As for givaways, i think the shop would rather keep their stuff> There was shoes sales though! But we thought what the heck and went exploring!Its amazin wot you can find in weird places!

  40. The local skateshop hosted a group skate. We had 18 people originally but three left. We went to various spots, mostly flatland to be considerate of those who couldn't skate sets or grind ledges or rails. Channel 1 in New Haven, Connecticut hosted the event. It was great. We had a G.O.S.K.A.T.E. tourny. I came in fifth place. They served really good pizza and Hawiian Punch. It was a pretty nice situation. Channel 1 did good. I had tons of fun skating with the New Haven locals. Go Skateboarding Day 2005.

  42. Go Skate Day was rad, the crew all skipped work and we had a BBQ while it was hot out. After that we hit up all of the schools and met some new heads. We shared spots, they showed us new ones and we showed them new ones. Learned some new tricks, did some old ones. All in all it was the perfect day, it didn't rain for once and not one cop or security guard gave us a hard time!!! Come visit South Florida, you wont be dissapointed

  43. Hey éS! I'm Raul Montero from Whitman, MA.

    On GSD, my skater fellows and myself drove around miles from our homes to find new spots, and came across a nice sidewalk to street gap over grass, but were kicked out after a half hour. We spent the day looking for more spots, and ended up about 50 miles from home. We came back to a somewhat local skatepark and then shred from there. I had a great time just with finding that one new spot and going about looking for more, although I didn't skate very much because I had to work in the middle of the day. But you guys encouraged me to go out and skate more so than just any other day. You represent this day well, keep it up!

  44. my school is super gay in west babylon, NY, i was going to go to wild in the streets, but i had a final in global, so i just went and skated with my friends at a three stair all day, it was still cool, but i wish i couldve gone.

  46. I had a huge skate jam at my house. Like 10 people showed up and we all skated our asses off. The fun thing was that everyone was chill, and we all just learned new tricks. Wild in the Streets would have been fun but I think i would need to go with my crew so i got some kids to skate with. Since in started my company, Ouch! Skateboard Co... all I do is host skate jams just to get my company recognized. Its really tough to start a company when your only 15. Well, Check the site!
    We are now planning a jam down the local streets or Brookfield and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US of A.

    Peace out,

    P.S. Thanks to eS Footwear, Emerica, and all the other companies that made Wild in the Streets Possible cuz that gives us a reason for the treason.

  73. PHOENIX.AZ hell yeah! I went to go to cowtown's go skateboarding night and it was rad as hell,when we first got their I was able to grab a bunch of free food, then me, my friends, and about 200 other sakters sat down to watch a video premier which they showed on the back of the cowtown wall via a projecter. Dustin dolin showed up and he was pretty funny , my friends asked him for beer but he said no, and like during his part of the video he was in the corner pissing. After the video was over, their was a mad dash to grab some maps and free stuff, the scavanger hunt was INSANE, skaters everywhere downtown and it seemed like veerytime we got a spot some kid just grabbed our stuff, and the end of the night our group of 8 ended up with 2 hats and 3 shirts, me unfortantly, empty handed. it was a fun event and tons of funny stuff went down like me and my friends almost laying this faggot ass security guard out. Overall it was super funa and cant wait til next years event.

    P.S in dolin's part o the video he kickflip K'd that one famous handrail, I forget what its called, like hollywood high or something, it was super sick

    Nothing happened near me to do with Go Skate Day and my mom wouldn't bring to the skatepark. I skated my awsome road and driveway instead. You guys should tell the Green House in Roanoke to do something next year.

  76. Yeah I had a long day at the local skatepark due to no car. It was good though due to the fact everyone was there and we all were going big. I learned a couple of tricks here and there (Fs Boardslide Shove Out second try and then Fs Bluntslide). So yes my "Go Skateboarding Day" was quite a good day in Tinley Park (Chicago), Illinios.

I was the first to go next was Kyle Schulte then Ricardo Rivera and then Justin Schulte won. It was one of the coolest skate sessions even though i lost like 10 bucks playing skate. It was worth it anyways. I was skating with my accels too because gangstas always represent their homies.

  88. How come when someone hears a RUMOR, they assume that person was cut or kicked off?? People can leave on their own free will you know.

    We had a little Wild In The Streets deal in Santa Rosa, CA. Due to a lack of organization, we only had maybe 30 skaters show up. We skated this place for a couple of hours:

    Then we tried to hit up a couple of schools. But got the boot from both within a few minutes. We ended up at a local shop that was having a BBQ and also had a few obstacles set up to skate. All in all not a bad day. Next year will be WAY better though. We will plan this junk out better.

  96. We were in a local jail on the go skateboarding day, because we made a lil mistake. We hasen't got licence for a huge mass skateboarder demonstration. We were on the streets more than 200 people. The 200 people started to roll and the riot policmans wanted to stop them. After 6 hours we were free again. We get a 500$ penalty. Peace

  110. Well, my go skateboardin day was quite different than that of the stories you have just read.
    I started my day by waking up in an excrutiating amount of pain. Because the day before i had busted ass at my local skatepark and broke my collar bone in 2 places...fun fun! So my go skating day pretty much sucked....
    I did try to make up for it though by filming my friends for ourvideo we are making. My day still sucked because I really felt like going skatin and pissin people of all day....

    So here i am typing away with my one good arm...im gonna be so bored for the month and a half that i have to wear this stupid sling....

    Hey but you guys at es...keep up good work...im still gonna rock ur shoes even if im outta skating for awhile

  115. I only got to skate for an hour or two, and not even at a park =( I skated in the church parking lot across the street from my house. Theres a few red parking ledges there, so I hit those. Best I did was a backside kickflip boardslide. I was tired, wasn't really the best skate day if you know what I mean.

    Check out my team's ghetto site. Only four of us, but were growing!

  116. This being my first ever Go Skateboarding Day I had decided the day before to gather up all of my friends and skate around town with them all day long. What sucks is none of them were allowed to come and It was like 90 degrees out side the whole time...So I basically just ended up skating by myself for a solid 5 or 6 hours...going back and forth between two spots...I still had fun though.

    Mikey Dawes Posted: 9 years ago

Well i went down to philly and skated with some some totally rad dudes, how does SPANKY, Ellington, Reynolds, leo Romero, Tosh Townend and some other cool dudes that i forget their names, but it was fucking chill as hell first we went to this one spot and there was like nothing to skate so me and my bitches headed to LOVE and fucking John says "we take a right here, wait am I bad left" so we fucking go the wrong the wrong way for about 15 or so blocks we get bitched at by fat ppl and buy water from strangers when we werelike "shit, were goin the wrong way" so me and bitches traveled about for about a half hour and we finally we see City Hall getting busted, apparently a cop decided to beat some kid up kid and mad ppl were gettin pissed so we bounced and headed to LOVE and the fuckin Cops are like "NO SKATEBOARDS" so we were like "Yo, 5-0 ya know where the seven eleven is" so we ran thru LOVE and got some food at seven eleven. about fifteen minutes later i got a 2 liter of coke in one hand and this nasty sandwich in the other when i see a fucking WALL of skaters bust right into LOVE, there musta been like 1,000 skaters. so i fuckin ran! to see this shit and get there and thers like mad hippis takin their shirts off and showin their hairy ass legs. so we stick around and thats when my bitches from Emerica showed and was like "Yo, Wattup" so i stook around for a bit and skated a planter with some rad dudes, and then some cop died and the place smelt like fucking pit cuz of those damned hippis, so my and bitches headed out and went to the next spot, all of a sudden im skatin down second street and fucking ELLINGTON rolls up beside me and is like "yo, you headed to the next stop?" and im like Holy Shit its fucking ellington, and so me ellington fucking skated to the next stop, and then i got tired and so i stopped at burger king to take a load outta my ass and then i headed to this spot underneath some type of bridge with some stuff skate(no, not FDR) and we skated and fucking Tosh was rippin shit fucking leo was like kickflip noseblunting, and i was like "what the fuck", Me and SPANKY sessioned a polejam and then the cops came and dragged us out, so then went up towards Nocturnal and the best philly cheese staek ever, and then went for 2 hour drive home to my safe haven.

    damn sry that was so long, but overall my day kicked ass.

    Josh Posted: 9 years ago
  138. me an my best mate ant, and a big mofo we like to call "big dave" wer determined to have a good days skating. and since we come from the shittiest town on earth called widnes, in the middle of liverpool and manchester, we decided to catch a train to a slightly better town called warrington. we went to quite a sick concrete park at warrington, and i think we all learnt at least ONE new trick. we were there from bout half ten in the morning to bout five at night. an then we came back to shitty ole widnes an skated the local park for a bit. an then by about 7 at night we were all pretty beat. coz the sun was beatin down that day (wich resulted in some nasty sunburns) an we'd all bin basically on our boards every minute of the day. ive gotta say that was a gud day! i guess its safe to say i love skateboarding, but after that day, im afraid i had serious chalk-type-ankles!!!!

  140. I live in a little town no one knows about called Mount Hope.It's kinda kiff living out in the stix so me and some of my closest buddies decided we weren't going to waste the day by sitting around and watching vids, when we could be out there pulling some sick shit. We went into Hamilton and found some pretty rad ledges and a few sets. It was pretty amazing and it was definately a day well spent. I learned a few new tricks and my buddies were a lot of help. Anyways...my last words here are about this "Ned Shneebly" guy.I personally think he's both a dumbass and a bullshitter.Mccrank man, you fuckin rock. It's awesome to see people like you and Appeyard representing Ontario. To the whole eS team- thanks and g'day

  187. Once I got home from finals, i got my wood and rail out and brought into my backyard and skated that all day. I have this big hole like the size of a pool and it is only 2 ft. hight. so i set my wood on top and grind the rail down the hole onto the other piece of wood. It was so fun. I finally did my switch front board down it.
