Drop Everything and Drop-in…

801 SkateshopHi there to all the villagers, the blogging world and to anyone reading this post. We hope you all are enjoying summertime and all the joys it brings. Maybe you like to hit the beach, the pool or a spend a little idle time in a hammock with a good book … really anything that breathes in the rhythm of this time of year is perfect.

OR …

Maybe, it’s “carving” out some time … doing a 180 … hitting the deck, and ripping into this season with a pace that takes the “chill” element out of the equation.

June 21st is the first day of summer, and it’s also the 10th anniversary of “Go Skateboarding” Day. It’s a day to drop everything and drop in on places like Ian Tilmann Skatepark in the village, and show the world what skateboarding is all about.

This annual holiday was conceived by the International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC) to promote the sport. And, it began as an excuse for skateboarders to make skateboarding their top priority for that one day.

You can “bank” it that on GSD 2014 this group of athletes will be celebrating the art of skateboarding by blowing off all those obligations and disconnecting from all that social media to honor the IASC’s mission –have fun, go skateboarding.

Haven’t skateboarded before??? Or, maybe you’re just “old school” and need some new equipment???

Well, there’s a place for you. The newly opened 801 Skateshop in the village has everything you need to learn about this sport, and is packed with clothing, sunglasses and other accessories. AND …of course, they are stocked with some high quality skateboards, so why not “airwalk” over and check ’em out. Don’t live in the village??? Well, you can always stalk them on Facebook.

Pictured here is Zak Franklin, owner of 801 Skateshop, with his amazing wall of skateboards.

It’s all about aerials, ollies, grinds, kickflips and spins … it’s all about fun. Show skateboarding some love, y’all!
