The History Of Go Skateboarding Day

Held on June 21 every year, Go Skateboarding Day is the official holiday of skateboarding. It started on June 21, 2003 with a few simple skate sessions and BBQs in skateboarding’s unofficial capital, southern California, as an excuse for skateboarders to make skateboarding their top priority for one full day. It was also meant to be a day for skateboarders to have fun, raise awareness about the issues we face, show the world what skateboarding is really all about, reclaim their culture and define skateboarding as the rebellious, creative celebration of independence it continues to be. In the years since that first celebration, the holiday continues to grow, but the mission remains the same: Have fun, go skateboarding!

Go Skateboarding Day was founded by the International Association of Skateboard Companies, who wanted to give pro and amateur skaters the chance to drop everything and get on a skateboard. Today, skateboard retailers, manufacturers, skate parks, distributors, organizations and individuals hold skateboarding events to celebrate the holiday. Skateboarders around the world create their own events and traditions to celebrate skateboarding. You should, too!

yes because it's awful and no nerd would even think of trying to join a cheerleading team. Also, it has teams and makes you pant if you aren't physically fit.
