Go Skateboarding Day 2015 @ Orlando Skate Park


Filmed & Edited by Gio Fournier

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.

2011 King of Crete @ OSP

Saturday, November 19th, was the Vitamin Water King of Crete at OSP in Orlando, FL. Everybody was killing it…East Coasters & West Coasters…Groms from 11 years old all the way up to Masters in their late 40’s and one that is even 50. It was a perfect day for some concrete shredding and in the end it was Mike Peterson, Sergie Ventura, Alex Sorgente, and Nick Wallace all taking first place in their respective divisions. To end the day off, everybody headed down the road to Skatebar for a couple of cold ones and the premiere of Lifeblood Skateboards’ first full-length video We Must Bleed.  Make sure to check out all of the final results and photographs below. Also, be sure to check out all of the video footage here. Looking forward to doing it again next year!
