While Nike SB had P-Rod and crew taking over LA on Go Skateboarding Day, they also had a solid crew in New York City for the same weekend featuring Eric Koston, Stefan Janoski, Ishod Wair, Alex Olson, Brian Anderson and Bobby Worrest. We were there as co-sponsors, along with CCS, to cover the weekend of skating and festivities. #GoSkateboardingDay started at the LES skatepark for a long ollie contest, best trick and Nike SB demo. Then everyone skated over the Williamsburg bridge to the temporary Nike SB pop up park to watch another demo on some very interesting obstacles like a basketball hoop incorporated into a miniramp and street course that was a giant Zen garden. Creative, fun stuff and the kids got to skate it all day Sunday to themselves before it was taken down. Thanks to all those that came out and supported a great event and thanks to NIke SB and CCS for helping putting on such a great weekend. See you again next year.
