So majority of true skaters know that June 21st is “Go Skateboard Day”, hopefully they know it’s the first day of summer as well. There will be a ton of events around the province of British Columbia, and of course the usual mass of people meeting up at the Vancouver Skate Plaza in the early afternoon to roam the downtown streets together in a mega-posse hitting up random spots and competing for sweet prizes.
We’ll see you there.
West 49 does things a little differently by setting up small venues at local skate parks to give all those unfortunate kids that couldn’t make it downtown a chance to score some gear too. They will be coming to a park near you.
See below for where and what time –
