Today is not only the first official day of summer, it is also GO SKATEBOARDING DAY! So…get your work done, roll up those sleeves and grab your stick. Its time to roll. To celebrate this glorious day, the Go Skateboarding Foundation, tapped legendary skateboard artist and former art director for Santa Cruz Skateboards, Jim Phillips Sr., to create artwork for the official GSD poster. All proceeds from sales of the poster are used to help send kids to skatecamp on a scholarship by the Go Skateboarding Foundation. Pretty tight.
There are tons of events happening around the world, on every coast, in every city. Here are a few of our favorites. Transworld Skateboarding will also be premiering its new video, Not Another TransWorld Video, worldwide today, so make sure to hit up your local shop for a front row seat. – Jeanine Pesce
