Obligatory Go Skateboarding Day Post

June 21 marks the beginning of Summer with the summer solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. The date also marks Go Skateboarding Day which began 10 years ago as the "All City Skate Jam" in New York City. The creation of the NYC event, now one of the largest in the world, is credited to Steve Rodriguez of 5Boro NYC. Today, right now, skaters are hitting the streets, parks, and backyard ramps all over the globe in celebration of our favorite pastime. And today, right now, yours truly, me, the blog guy, is banging out words on the page for you to read while I wait for the rain to pass and the streets to dry so that I too may join in solidarity with skaters all over the globe to celebrate what started as a hobby for some, but has become a lifestyle for us all.
