Go Skateboarding Day is an annual one-day celebration of skateboarding, held on 21st June (and this year on the 22nd June also), with the aim of promoting the sport and encouraging skaters to drop everything else and get outside. Originally conceived in 2004, with a few simple skate sessions and barbecues held in skateboarding’s unofficial capital, Southern California.
