It’s coming up in less than a month!
For one day, skateboarders will take over the world! Imagine 20 million-plus skateboarders all riding at the same time! That will be the scene on the first day of Summer, June 21...also known as Go Skateboarding Day. Above all else, it’s a day for skateboarders to forget about school, work or other responsibilities and just skate. It’s also an opportunity for those who’ve never been on a skateboard to grab a friend and join in.
The first annual Go Skateboarding Day last June caught on quicker than anyone imagined. Skateboarders held events throughout the Americas, Europe, Australia and Japan. Some of those events included backyard jams, skatepark sessions and impromptu street missions.
Last year was just the beginning of the grind heard around the world. This year, Go Skateboarding Day is going to be even bigger and more exciting, so go to your local skate shop to find out about events in your area, or visit IASC.
Now’s the time for number eight in our ongoing series of Emerica Blab interviews in which you, the ever-loyal Kids, get to ask your favorite Emerica team rider that burning question you’ve always wanted to know.
This month’s subject is Emerica pro Bryan Herman—true skateboarder to the core. Without further ado, get your bad self into the Blabs section and ask away. Before you ask anything, however, be sure to read Herm’s bio and interview first! Also, please keep your questions short and to the point.
The Last Blast!
