Go Skateboarding Day

   Today is the International Skateboarding Day or Go Skateboarding Day, an annual holiday conceived by the International Association of Skateboard Companies, to promote skateboarding, thank you Wikipedia ;) 

   Since I first start writing this blog, I learn so many things, in order to share with you quality information, and this "Go Skateboarding Day" in such a thing. One week had passed and I'm enjoying so much to write SurfLocus...

   I don't have so much time to blog today, but I felt that was really important to share this date with you. Skateboarding is a lot of fun and for me it was very important because it "push" me to Surf. Nowadays I'm still skating, but I don't put so much effort on that, as Surfing is my great passion. Nonetheless, I really enjoy to skate from time to time, when the ocean is "flat" ;) 

  Let me show you some YouTube videos about surfing. The first is a skate freestyle of the Dew Tour 2012, the second is about a skate Legend, Rodney Mullen that created a lot of skate tricks, the last is a Red Bull Skating Movie.

    Skating can be a great way to improve your surfing skills, let me show you this video:

   There is a great movie, with both connections with Surf and Skate that you should watch, Lords of Dogtown.

  Unfortunately, I don't have much time to share with you more, but I will certainly cover skating again in SurfLocus. I leave you with a couple skateboarding photos. Have Fun!!
