Introduced by IASC (International Association of Skateboarding Companies), Go Skateboarding Day is a day for skateboarders to forget about school or work and just skate, and for those who have never been on a skateboard, to grab a friend and join in. On the first Go Skateboarding Day last year, skateboarders held events throughout the Americas, Europe, Australia and Japan. Some of those events included backyard jams, skatepark sessions and impromptu street missions. See you there!
