There are approximately 12 million skateboarders in the world which help to make up a 5 billion dollar industry. Today is a celebration of that. Today is go Skateboarding Day. Skateboarders around the world will celebrate the creativity, spirit and passion of the sport by blowing off all other obligations to go skateboarding together. Which, by the way, is what most skateboarders do on a daily basis, I personally used to ditch class all the time to go skate with my boys. Go Skateboarding Day originated from all the “No Skateboarding” signs cities would put up everywhere which would be changed to “Go” instead of “No.” Check out this short video someone put together of what it was like last year in Los Angeles and make some time in your day to get out for a push around town.
