About Go Skateboarding Day! Insert from GoSkateBoardingDay.org. Each year on June 21st, skaters around the world celebrate the pure exhilaration, creativity, and spirit of our beloved sport by blowing off all our responsibilities and chores in order to go skateboarding. On this holy day, skaters will show their love and support for skateboarding by holding fundraisers, contests, protests and demos. They’ll skate across cities, gather in skate parks, stream into local skate shops, and make pilgrimages to their favorite skate spots, all while taking part in the grind heard ‘round the world.

Venice Ghost Jam was ruled by these 3 hands down rippers! Leandre Sanders, Sean Imes & Haden Mckenna ran the 3 block, double set and the grand finale “the snake run high jump”! These guys made the day for everyone in Venice and I think it was the most exciting contest Venice has ever seen. What a team.
