On Sunday, June 21 skateboarders around the globe will 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. We know most skateboarders do this every day of their lives, but this is just one more reason to blow off your television/computer/video games and go skateboarding!
Skateboarders everywhere will show their love and support for skateboarding by holding fundraisers, contests, protests and demos. They’ll skate across cities, gather in skateparks, stream into their local skate shop and some will even revel in the solitary act of skateboarding alone at their favorite spot, all bringing together the skateboarding community.
GSD began June 21, 2004 as an excuse for skateboarders to make skateboarding their top priority. Founded by the International Association of Skateboard Companies, Go Skateboarding Day gives passionate skateboarders as well as those who are simply inspired by skateboarding, the opportunity to drop everything and get on a skateboard. It is a cooperative of decentralized events that take place around the globe. Retailers, manufacturers, skateparks, distributors, organizations and individuals of all colors, creeds, and attitudes hold skateboarding events to celebrate.
Have fun, go skateboarding!
