June 21, 2007: No school. No work. Nothing but skateboarding. Today is our day. Join in the grind heard around the world!
There are plenty of Go Skateboarding Day events happening all over the place. Go to your local skate shop and see what’s going on, or visit Go Skateboarding Day. If nothing is happening in your area, get everyone together and start your own event!
Suggestions: Choose a place for everyone to meet. Skate across town, hitting all the spots along the way. Hold a best trick contest or play a game of SKATE. End up at your local skate shop or skatepark and have a barbeque! Use your imagination. The possibilities are endless!

Connie sewers of fine art and literature take note! The second issue of The Larb has finally been thrown up, and boy is it full of visual mayhem. Take this issue’s cover, for example. Notice the fine line and detail that convey the famously prim and proper elegance of skateboarding. It's downright dainty! Just kidding. Actually, I'd like to frame a copy of this cover and hang it up in Martha Stewart’s kitchen just to remind her that there’s a real world out there. Out of all the depictions of vomiting throughout skateboarding's history--Rob Roskopp's Slimeballs ad, Matt Allen's first Birdhouse ad, etc.--this is my new favorite.--Post King
Enter right now on the contest page for a chance to win one free pair of Emerica Transist shoes designed by Ed Templeton and a one-of-a-kind skateboard deck hand-painted by Ed. Why does the photo not show the artwork on the deck? Because Ed is on tour right now and hasn't painted it yet. We'll post a new photo soon. Contest ends on July 13, 2007.
