Grind a curb, huck yourself down some stairs or bomb a hill — it doesn’t matter. Just go skate.
Big companies like Girl & Chocolate Skateboards are sponsoring a best-trick contest at the Civic Center’s popular “10 stair” spot. “If you’re a skateboarder, you skate every day, if possible,” says Girl & Chocolate Skateboards sales representative Chad Lewis. “Go Skateboarding Day is a way to unite us.”
So-Gnar and Wahoo’s Fish Taco are teaming up to organize a video-edit contest to mark the day. Get your crew together and make a three-minute video showing how you spent Go Skateboarding Day; turn it in by 8 p.m. at Wahoo’s Uptown, 225 East 20th Street, and you can see it projected on the big screen for a chance to win cash and prizes. Check out so-gnar.com for more information on the contest, and visit your local skate shop for more happenings and meet-ups.
