If you're a New Yorker I've got you covered, Check out the flyer below for the biggest Go Skateboarding Day celebration in nyc with even more sponsors and giveaways.
Each year in New York City, 5boro Skateboards organizes and runs what is arguably the largest Go Skateboarding Day event in the world – with this year’s event slated to be bigger and better than ever before.
Led by Steve Rodriguez, NYC’s 2011 Go Skateboarding Day is made possible through generous support from Presenting Sponsors Maloof Money Cup and 5boro Skateboards, Supporting Sponsors Vans, Volcom, Red Bull and CCS, and non-profit community partner, the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn.
“With help from our dedicated sponsors we were really able to step it up this year to make it more of a city-wide happening with events in three of New York City’s five boroughs,” says Steve Rodriguez. “We’ll start off at Maloof Cup Park in Queens, hit the LES Skatepark in Manhattan, and end the day in Brooklyn at McCarren Park. Hopefully next year we can get Staten Island and the Bronx involved as well, and give the New York City Marathon a run for its money!”
Several thousand local skaters are expected to participate in this year’s festivities, with special appearances by a variety of top pros and ams from 5boro, Vans, Volcom, Red Bull and CCS. Throughout the day live music will be provided by Red Bull’s acclaimed DJ squad, a massive product toss will take place, and several “Best Trick” contests will be held with $5,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs. Plus, for the first time ever, a special edition NYC Go Skateboarding Day ‘zine will be distributed free to participants.
