In 2009, Go Skateboarding Day not only grew in events and the number of skateboarders- it was also a year of incredible happenings!
In Afghanistan, Skateistan celebrated the freedom of skateboarding on the rough streets of Kabul and in the local skatepark ( which is actually a defunct water fountain).
In Vancouver, Emericans skated the streets with the likes of Leo Romero, Ed Templeton, and Andrew Reynolds. But in 2010 they're coming to YOUR CITY (maybe).
The guys from Element were all over the globe with their flat bar-b-que special sauce. And the wrap up photos are enough to make you wanna eat a dog and go shred the bar-b right now.
NYC had a rain out- but still had thousands of skateboarders turn up to skate and get freebies from Tech Deck and others.
The art by Steve Caballero was raw and fun and made a lot of people happy with the free T-shirts they won. So the final wrap up is pretty late, but we've been busy skateboarding and bottom line- we came, we saw, we skated.
