GO SKATEBOARDING DAY, HELD SINCE 2004 ON JUNE 21: IS THE OFFICIAL SKATE HOLIDAY
Founded by the International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC), “Go Skateboarding Day” gives passionate skateboarders as well as those who are simply inspired by this event, the opportunity to drop everything and get on a skateboard.
This holiday was conceived as the day for skateboarders to have fun, to raise awareness about the issues we face; to show the world what skateboarding is really all about, to reclaim its culture, and to define skateboarding as the rebellious, creative celebration of independence it continues to be.
On 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. 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: have fun and go skateboarding!
