June 21, 2008 – Go Skateboarding Day

There’s no denying the fact that the sport of snowboarding would not be what it is today if skateboarding had never been invented. The tricks, the style, the attitude and the feeling of surfing the snow have all been heavily influenced by skating (and, of course, surfing before that).

So what better way to honour our sport’s roots than by grabbing a skateboard on June 21, shredding some concrete and joining the thousands (millions?) of other people around the world who will be celebrating Go Skateboarding Day.
