Go Skateboarding Day 2012 PHOTOS

Go Skateboarding Day is every day for the most of us, but on June 21st, it’s celebrated to the entire world! For our part, we celebrated #GSD2012 at our very own Headquarters in Mira Loma, CA!

Big thanks to everybody that came and all the brands for the support of skateboarding!
Major thanks to Monster for the new park set-up which included a vert wall, handrail, four block, and hubba.
Thanks to Vans & Volcom for holding it down on the best trick contest!
Congrats to Daniel Espinoza who won this year’s best trick with a bigger flip front board to fakie on the Monster rail!

(Stay tuned for footage. For now, check out the photos!)

Go Skate Day at The Active Park Pics and Video

June 21st marked National Go Skateboarding Day, lots of sun and lots of fun. Active Ride Shop opened their new private park, The Active Park, to the public for one day only and Vans threw down a $500 best trick contest. SpeerCo tossed in a helpful heaping on $20 hammers to make things exciting! After many of failed shady attempts to sneek into the event, our boy Forest finally got in and managed to land a tre flip 50-50 on the big rail and a back 360 flip over the pyramid for the win! Skaters enjoyed the Red Bull Manny Mania street course, Vans free BBQ, tons of free drinks from Jarritos and Red Bull, fun vendor booths from Active Ride Shop, Ambiguous, Analog, Baker/Deathwish, JSLV, Crooks & Castles, Element, Heel Bruise, Huff, Jarritos, Kayo, LRG, Mighty Healthy, Rogue Status, Skatedogs, SpeerCo the ramp builders, Stussy, Supra, Krew, Syndrome Dist, Us Versus Them, Vans and XGames. The Active Park made possible by SpeerCo the ramp builders, Jarritos (the bombest Mexican soda around!) and Tec Color Craft (producers of amazing skate stickers since forever!).

Big thanks to the brands, the skaters and staff for making this amazing!! See ya next year!!
