Happy International Go Skateboarding Day
Last week we celebrated ocean-dwellers with International Surfing Day, so it’s only fit that we turn out attention to the concrete-jungle this week to celebrate International Go Skateboarding Day.
This year marks the 15th annual Go Skateboarding Day (GSD), and much like years past, the goal is to get skaters of all ages and talents out skating, whether it’s at an organized GSD event or just around town.
We’re paying homage by reliving a recent session with Chris Cole and Sean Malto in LA above, but we encourage you to get your GSD on by heading to the skatepark, bombing that hill you’ve been eyeing, or visiting the local skate shop to upgrade your gear. However you choose to celebrate, just be sure to capitalize on GSD lining up with summer solstice, and send it until the sun goes down.
Join the conversation on social media by using #GoSkateboardingDay and #GoProSkate—don’t forget to capture some follow-cam using a GoPro. Check out the GoPro Skate Team taking on Greece for a little more inspiration. And if that still doesn’t get you, watch some bangers from our favorite filmers @chrisrayfilms and @drpurpleteeth.
