While the holiday grows, the mission remains the same: Go skateboarding and have fun!
Skateboarders from around the world are getting ready to take it to the streets for the 5th Annual International Go Skateboarding Day (GSD). Events are popping up all around the globe, from free griptape giveaways to contests and demos at some of the biggest skate parks, featuring appearances by some of the most well known names in skateboarding.
“We’re happy to see our core retailers and so many others in the skateboard industry have come together to get involved with GSD. Everyone planned some really epic events to get as many riders as possible to skateboard and celebrate on the first day of summer and also to make this year’s GSD the most memorable year to date," said John Bernards, GSD spokesperson.
