Go Skate Day 2018 Recap

Last Thursday, June 21st was international Go Skate Day, one of our favorite days of the year. We had about 50 skaters participate in a cruise from the shop to the lighthouse in Canal Park with a few stops along the way. Thanks to all who came out to celebrate with us and a special shout out to Kyle Patterson for shooting these photos.
 En route to our first pit stop where Evan Hughes won himself a set of wheels for slaying the barriers at the overpass.
Team rider Kyle Walczak with a healthy dose of POP. The high ollie contest ended in a tie but Carter not only ollied, he kickflipped 16 decks to win the long jump... That stunt earned him a set of bearings. The kid knows how to ride his skateboard.
We saw a lot of familiar faces and a few new ones. Skateboarding's ability to bring people together is awesome.
 Evan Hughes was firing all night.
 Father-son duo Eric and Ollie were out stacking clips!
We took our annual photo at the lighthouse before heading to Lake Avenue Restaurant and Bar for some much needed food and beverages. Thank you skateboarding!
