National Go Skateboarding Day takes place on June 21st every year and it’s the day for Skateboarders across the globe to celebrate what they’re passionate about most. It all started in 2004 and has been an ongoing holiday where skaters across the world drop everything and just focus on what they love skateboarding.
Team Pain Skate Parks just recently completed a restoration of the 12 year old Orlando Skate Park. Adding a few new obstacles, fresh paint, and a compete revamp of the big bowl in the back end of the park. Complete with brand new tedder stone pool coping and tile, not to mention the strenuous task of demoing the previous hip and reconstructing a brand new hip that opens up the bowl and allows for more flow and lines. Check out the recap above to see some of Orlando’s best tearing up their newly renovated skate park.
Here is just a little taste of how big Jacksonville, Florida did Go Skateboarding Day 2012. As you can see, thousands of people descended upon Hemming Plaza in downtown Jacksonville for shredding, music, an art show, a chopper show, an antique car show, and good times! Hemming Plaza is one of those places; seems like every city has one; where there are a bunch of good spots, but is a huge bust…tickets, boards being confiscated, etc. Well, this year, for Go Skateboarding Day, the city of Jacksonville, with the help of all of the sponsors, decided to allow Hemming Plaza to be skated, while also benefiting the Kona School. This is an edit of the Autoline Preowned Street Best Trick Contest. Full coverage of the entire event is coming soon!
