Rolling Into the History

Our journey begins way back in 2004 when the International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC) thought it would be a radical idea to give skateboarders their day in the sun. And thus, National Go Skate Day was born. Noted as the Christmas for skateboarders, this day has gained momentum over the years, with an impressive peak of 2117 online mentions on June 21, 2017. That's a lot of love for skateboards indeed!

Where the Sidewalk Ends is Where the Fun Begins

Every year on June 21, skateboarders from all walks of life, gather at parks and streets to celebrate this unique blend of sport and art. From pro skaters to newbies, everyone is free to feel the thrill of the wind in their hair as they coast down streets and railings. And if you trip and fall? Well, that's just part of the fun.

Not Just a Fly-By Event

Once just a day, this event has evolved more into a movement promoting the health benefits and communal spirit of skateboarding. Cheers and laughter echo in skate parks as young and old alike share the common thrill of defying gravity, even if it's just momentarily. It's not just the tricks up the skateboarders' sleeves that are extraordinary, it's the camaraderie and collective enthusiasm that sets this day apart.
