Go Skateboarding Day 2012

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 to go skateboarding. OK, most skateboarders do this every day of their lives, but this is just one more reason to bail your Job, tv, computer and go skateboarding!

Ya, we know it follows International Surfing Day, but why not throw a back-to-back blitzkrieg of boarding right when school gets out. Skaters hit the pavement in over 200 cities worldwide and Cops don’t stand a chance at stopping us.

Here’s footage from last year’s event in San Diego.

Our favorite gathering goes down in Mission Beach, Ca where the Sector Nine boys throw an annual “Poker Run.” Hundreds of Nine-Ballers of all ages race down the boardwalk collecting poker cards from various checkpoints. The best hands of 5-card-stud take home free skates and sweaty wads of cash. If your in the area, come to the South Mission Jetty between 12-2pm. Only the first 100 skaters will get to play, but anyone can join the skate parade.
