Hey kiddos! First day of summer, let's go terrorize the town and skate skate skate! In all reality though, this is one of the best ideas ever. Although it technically started in 1997, the first IASC official "Go Skateboarding Day" wasn't until 2004, and went from a small Cali idea to a million skateboarder global phenomenon in two years.

etnies CMO Don Brown planted the original seed with a few industry friends and some bars. Once he joined the board of the IASC he took the idea to the big leagues. He looks strangely familiar to this fellow skating the 405 on Go Skateboarding Day on June 21, 2008.
