Adult GSD
“ADULT GO SKATEBOARDING DAY” this Saturday! When GSD was started by “DON BROWN IN 2013″ it was on some sort of of mass critical reckless abandonment and then corporate turned it into “Go Watch Skate Pros’s”…LAME
For the last 3 years in New York City GSD has taken on it’s own identity to help of a few purist. It happens once a year on the summer solstice and its Global. It’s what you make of it and as long as your skateboarding for life/everyday it’s what you want it to be. But please make sure your Skateboard everyday. “It’s not a sport and it’s a way of life… just like walking” …Michael A. Cohen
Happy “GO SKATEBOARDING DAY”

Being part of a passionate movement.

01 April 2014, 01.12 | Posted in skateboard | 1 comment »

Most skateboarders, surfers and snowboarders that I am friends with are extremely passionate and involved in their chosen discipline. Not only are they involved on the board but they are part of the fabric that embodies all aspects of supporting and embracing the longevity of what they are so passionate about. When a member of the community is no longer with us, we as a group, feel a void and replace that void in our own unique and special way. It’s never hard to forget but its always best to make sure others remember, and that others are introduced to what that person achieved for experience to be passed on.

With all this said I am writing about my friend Harold Hunter who so many in the skateboard community knew and loved. I work as a volunteer for the Harold Hunter Foundation and also help promote the organization 24/7. The foundation is a great cause and means a lot to me and my friends he left behind. We host several events a year to help bring awareness to and support for our main goal, which is keeping Harold’s name and legacy alive while sending under-privileged skaters like Harold to amazing skateboard facilities; such opportunities that would have brought Harold through. This week will be my friends’ would-be 40th birthday and we as the skateboard community will be celebrating this joyful event! Friends and colleagues will get together and share memories through photography, video and intimate stories. Please join us in our mission for our friend, Harold Hunter.
