Across the world, skaters of all ages are heading out to shred parks and local community spaces in celebration of Go Skateboarding Day. Each year, on June 21, skate groups everywhere come together to promote the sport they love.
The crew at Holystoked Collective has been working non-stop to boost skateboarding in India by celebrating in four cities this year – Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and Pune. Their Go Skateboarding Day 2017 initiative is partnered by Vans, Oxelo by Decathlon, Uboardindia and Red Bull.
In Bangalore, skaters are meeting at MG Road metro station bright and early at 9am for an hour of ripping the streets before heading towards Cunningham road for the best trick contest at 11am. This is followed by a jam behind Vidhana Soudha and then the mani pad contest at 2pm. Indiranagar is the next stop at around 4pm. The much-awaited premier of the VANS Holy Detour video.
Plenty of surprises are promised until the gig winds up at 11pm.
So get your boards and head out!
