Just in case you need a good excuse to get away from doing some work around the house or going to that wedding for that relative you barely even remember, next weekend is “Go Skateboarding Day.” No joke. And, thanks to Nike SB‘s help, this year it’s going to be a huge event in NYC, which the Swoosh has decided to dub “Skate Safari.” All the big names in the area are helping to hype up the event, including Van’s DQM New York, who will be slowly leaking information about the activities cued up over the next week. The event, held on June 22 and 23 from 9am-7pm, will be open to all skaters around NYC looking for an all-things-skating experience, including visits from big names in the game, local vendors, and your deck-driven neighbors. If you want to secure a spot ahead of time, visit DQM from 12pm – 4pm on Sunday, June 16, because admission on site will be limited. Oh, and there’s a waiver. That means things could get interesting.
