Go Skateboarding Day was originally formed to celebrate skateboarding by taking a day and devoting it to riding. Local riders would change all the 'no skateboarding' signs to ' go skateboarding' signs by defacing them with markers, paint or whatever they could get their hands on. The International Association of Skate Companies decided to legitimize the event and turn it into a national holiday. It was decided that Go Skateboarding Day would be celebrated every June 21st.
