This year’s Go Skateboarding Day in NYC was a scorcher hitting close to 100° but everyone still made it out in full support. It began at the Maloof skate park in Queens around 12PM where there was an open skate & best trick conte$t. Steve Rodriguez gave away 500 Metro Cards and around 2PM everyone jumped on the Subway making their way towards the Williamsburg bridge and eventually made it to the new Coleman skate park in the LES, NYC where the Nike team was on-site. The park was mobbed but kids crammed in tricks wherever they could. Steve R and the Nike crew officially introduced the new park and ended with a Nike skate demo.
Shut & Vans hosted the official Go Skateboarding Day NYC after-party at Tammany Hall. A free night at the Ace Hotel, NYC was raffled off along with some Shut & Chrome gear. We then ended the night appropriately at Max Fish!
Props to everyone who came out and celebrated Go Skateboarding Day, we look forward to an even better GSD next year. Remember, every day is Go Skateboarding Day… enjoy the pics below.
