    Default Go Skateboarding Day

    Yeah, yeah, it was yesterday, but what did you all do?

    One of my mates organized a jam at this crap park that's being refurbished, lots of people showed up which means that we might get more from the local council. Rad.
    I was a judge for the bowl and best trick comps, saw plenty of good friends, did some straight pressure flips, a Howard flip and smiled a lot.
    Got my first Isle board too, a Jensen, yes.

    We are currently filming a video for Welcome Skate Store. We just went searching for new spots outside of Leeds city centre. Got loads of footage and drank some beer. Was exactly the same as any other day off from work haha. Was fucking rad though. Same again today!

    Yesterday I cycled 65km to make a start on working off all the unhealthy food I ate over the course of my 'birthday week' and didn't even look at my skateboard. Today I'm off skating and I'm gonna try get summat on film, probably won't happen but it'll be a blast anyway as I'll be with rad people at a park I haven't been to for about three years. Looking forward to it!

    Gonna watch me some Dan Drehobl then get my shred on.

    didn't even know it was go skateboarding day tbh but I did go skating. had the park to myself apart from a bunch of kids throwing bottles filled with water up and down the quarter pipes and in the bowl. sounds a bit like a harmony korine film reading that back. gummo vibes.

    i went to the cinema, then drank beers on the beach. i also walked through the skatepark without my board to make the kids there think about what they were buying into. it all looked so forced, like they were desperate to have fun. fuck GSD, it's just a big corporate scam for the skate companies. i can go skate anyday i want, why should i be made to go and have fun with everyone on a specific day?

    for real though, went to the level for the rad little day that the local shop put on. everyone skated together and killed it, music, bbqs, laughs and a few jams in the bowl and the street section, prizes and throwouts. sick day

    That's how I've always viewed it really - essentially nothing more than a catalyst to get people together for jams, sessions or whatever. There seemed to be quite a lot of sessions/jams going on in a bunch of different places, and presumably that wouldn't have all happened had there not been that kind of rallying point. I know jams do go on at other times of the year too, but bearing in mind how fun they (usually) are, is it really a bad thing that there's another reason for someone to put one on?

    I'm with you on that but I have come to terms with reality and can only be stoked on jams and events considering that I skate on my own most of the time.
    This event wasn't even GSD, it was just a jam we organized in order to raise funds for new obstacles at this shitty park.
    Anyway, skate whenever you want, unless you are Alex Olson.

    Glad you liked that picture. My chick is from this area, and here are a few pics she took around there:

    I just went up the local knowing it was going to be a solo session. Luckily though, happened to run into a Bristol invasion. Met 3 fellow forum heads and ended up having a mad session. Rad day! And when/if they read this, I didn't bugger off without saying anything, just went to the shop but by the time I got back you had scarpered.
