Go Skate Day Tomorrow in Hemming Plaza
Oh snap, tomorrow is going to be INSANE! So many people are talking about/stoked on Go Skate Day tomorrow afternoon at Hemming Plaza in Downtown Jacksonville that we're expecting a critical mass! Never before has it been legal to skate at this prime location, it's going to be extra gnarly!
The best part about it is that the event is for a most righteous cause, the Kona School. This private institute of awesomeness makes me wish I was 15 years younger. It's like a rock n roll high school / junior high for action sports! Check out this interview I did with sponsor PB&J's Keith Marks for the new Dig Downtown Jax blog to learn more about what Go Skate Day is going to do for Downtown.
As an added bonus, BURRO will be announcing our new project in cooperation with Volcom! They have donated some of their old bannes, tent tops and billboards from which we will be making limited edition tote bags. A portion of the proceeds will be going to benefit the Kona School in some form or fashion. We'll also have some products on display and for sale so come snag a t-shirt, wallet, hip bag, messenger or place a custom order!
As an even extra added bonus, all 21+ skaters are welcome to drop by Burro Bar after the event for one free pint of Sweetwater 420. All you gotta do is show Melisande your board (but don't forget to tip)! Then stick around for Ars Phoenix, Os Ovni and Shylights!
