June 21st is Go Skateboarding Day. Began in 2004 by the International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC), Go Skateboarding Day is a day for anyone and everyone to take a break from everything, get together with family and friends and go skateboarding. Go Skateboarding Day is set for June 21st because it happens to be the first full day of summer.
This was neat to find out:
~A fact that has arisen from history of skateboarding is that skateboarding has actually considered to have developed from surfing, and was initially known as sidewalk surfing, with the first skateboard being introduced in the year 1950.
~Skateboarding originated in California, and the first skateboard had handles so that it could be easily maneuvered by its users. The maximum number of skateboarders belong to California.
~Before the ramp for skateboarding was invented, skateboarders used to practice in empty swimming pools and drainage ditches. It was later that they began to build the ramp, which led to the development of the half pipe that forms the core of skateboarding at more advanced levels.
~Among all the sports in the world, skateboarding has made its mark among the top ten most popular sports.
So grab your skateboard and head out to wherever it is that you like to skate. Grab some friends if you want and throw a party! You can also check in with your local skateboard shop to see what events are planned, or plan your own. The point is to enjoy skateboarding!
