Go Skateboarding Day event locations and Pro Skaters who will attend.
(PRWEB) June 15, 2010 -- The 8th annual Go Skateboarding Day (GSD), celebrated annually on June 21st is on Monday this year, so the skateboard industry, pro skaters, and skaters around the world are celebrating all weekend long.
GSD unites the global skateboard family to have fun, raise money and awareness for needy skateparks, promote local skate shops, and raise money for local charities and community needs. Founded by the International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC) and with strong support from pro skaters, GSD is a holiday that encourages everyone to drop what they are doing, have fun, and go skateboarding!
GSD grows exponentially each year and this year is set to be the largest celebration of the sport yet. Stand-out events this year include:
West coast skaters can head over to the Venice Beach Skatepark between 1:00pm-4:00pm to ring in the holiday. Participants will enjoy cash for tricks, pro autograph signing, and giveaways. Attendees will also have the opportunity to skate with pro skaters Ryan Decenzo, Mark Appleyard, Chris Haslam, James Craig, Cooper Wilt, Louis Lopez, Joey Brezinski, and Jake Duncombe.
San Diego, CA offers two events on GSD. Sector 9 skaters and friends will be skating from Crown Point Park in San Diego to the South Mission Jetty at 10am on Monday; Wahoo’s will be providing complimentary food for skaters. Tum Yeto is having an all day skate jam and BBQ on Monday at Embarcadero Marina Park.
New York City never fails to support GSD and this year is no exception. KR3W riders Chad Muska and Lizard King will be joining skaters in the NYC area at the L.E.S. Skatepark under the Manhattan Bridge on Monday at 3pm.
