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”
