The International Association of Skateboard Companies originally created the holiday to promote the sport in a time where “No Skateboarding” signs were popping up across the nation. It’s rumored that the idea was based off the actions of local skateboarders changing the signs to read “Go Skateboarding.”
Be sure to get outside and get active this weekend and hop on a board if you have one. You don’t have to be a skateboarder to enjoy exhilaration and spirit that make the sport great.
