It’s International Go Skateboarding Day!

We’re back at last. Sorry for the lack of updates, I went on vacation and didn’t have time (or internet actually) to post. The good news is we’re back, so you can expect a flurry of new updates headed your way soon.

Enough with that though because today is International Go Skateboarding Day! The event is a worldwide effort to get skaters out into the streets and skateparks to shred and spread the stoke. Since today is also the longest day of the year, you’ll have plenty of time to get out and shred. The event takes place annually and has been growing steadily every year, making it better and better.There are events going on all over the world, especially here on the East Coast, head on over to the event finder to find out what’s going on near you.

If you’re in Southern New England (specifically CT) the Northern Skate Alliance has organized some pretty good sessions that look to be rather promising.
