Go Skateboarding Day NYC 2017

Once again Nike SB put on a great Go Skateboarding Day in the Big Apple. They added some new features to the LES Skatepark and had a skate jam/block party all day. There were a number of best trick contests around the park, free food, shirts, custom griptape artists and more. The Nike SB pros were hanging out and skating with the locals and a good time was had by all. Check the photos and stay tuned for a video coming soon!
