Durban Go Skateboarding Day 2014

Durban Go Skateboarding Day 2014

The IS skatepark in the military museum on Durban’s beachfront was more than just the central hub of Durban skateboarding to me – it was very close to my heart – a project I was instrumentally involved in, one that turned into our own TF and something that really helped the DBN scene progress. It played its role for a period of time, and then its time was up to make way for the next wave of progression. It’s in honour of that history and heritage that we took the GoSkateDay session to the grounds the skatepark used to occupy – enjoy! – Andrew Morck

Nike SB Go Skateboarding Day 2013 London

The Nike SB team celebrated Go Skateboarding Day in style with a tour of East, South, Central and West London. Taking in spots old and new they stopped off at the Hackney Wick park, Homerton bumps, Elephant & Castle, South Bank and ended with a final session at BaySixty6 off Portobello Road.

Local skaters joined the team en route to get their stoke on and pick up a limited edition GSD tee.

With new team riders Capser Brooker and Joe Gavin in the mix, a solid 10 hours went down in honour of skating.

On Saturday the 22nd of June, the Joburg skate fraternity had their turn to celebrate go skate day with an event at an empty factory in Commissioner Street, downtown Joburg. A chilly morning made for a slow start to the day, but gave the guys a chance to put finishing touches on a skate photography exhibition which included works from Dwayne, Lingo, Werner, Jonathan and Rudi. As the day warmed up, skaters poured in from Soweto, Pretoria, Jhb, Vereeniging, and even GVB and Dave made it all the way from Durban. By lunchtime there were at least 100 guys skating with just as many spectators. Samsung sponsored hotdogs for everyone at the event and after lunch it was time to get to the fun underway with the highest ollie, highest hippie jump and furthest ollie contest, all sponsored by Baseline. Jonathan won the hippie jump with a well over hip high jump and Stuart cleared over 3 meters to win the longest ollie contest. The product toss always makes for good spectator value and this event was no different thanks to donations from Volcom and Vans. The most popular of the obstacles for the day, was the wall ride sponsored by Verb, so we decided to run 2 events, the first was the highest wall ride which was won by Evan who impressed all by getting at least 2m above the top of the ramp and then coming in fakie. The second was a best trick contest on the wall ride, which was won by TK who went wall ride to flat. The final event for the day was the KFD box jam which was won by Mitchell with an impressive front blunt slide to backside flip out. The day was finished off with a performance by Jet Black Camaro. The best part of the day was getting all the inner city kids on boards. Many of these kids had never been on skateboard before and everyone was keen to give them a try and some helpful tips. Everyone was so taken by the enthusiasm of the kids that they donated any extra boards or hardgoods that they could. Verb donated 3 completes to a few of the inner city guys that showed the most potential. Special thanks to Lingo for organising an amazing event as well as the companies that contributed towards the day: Verb, KFD, Revolution, Baseline, Volcom, Vans, Samsung and to all the skaters who came out to make this a great day!
