Upcoming Event: DNA Midwest Footwear Show

midwest_show

This looks like a cool event to go to if you get the chance. There is going to be a grip of pros (as listed above) and if you’re a sneaker/art head you’re going to be in for a good time. The CAC always puts on good exhibits and has featured skateboarding a time or two before, one event even had The Hot Chocolate Tour playing on a couple of the TV’s and it had artwork,boards,and photography done by pros, photographers and the like.
I don’t think I’m going to get a chance to make it to it but if any of you do, feel free to email me pictures at OhioSkateUniv@gmail.com
The details are on the flier but if you need more information click more for links that can help you out if you need it.

A Brief Lecture

DC Shoes/Rob Dyrdek Skate Plaza in Kettering, OH

June 21st, 2009 was the 6th annual Go Skateboarding Day. This skateboarding holiday was created to urge skaters to put aside everything and take a day off to do nothing but skate and hang out. As skateboarding continues to grow, so does the holiday, as well as the number of people involved. Skate companies have begun to get involved over the years alongside skate shops, parks and organizations. Together, these groups have created contests, demos, fund raisers, park openings, etc. Skaters enjoy the chance to get out and skate and are overjoyed at a chance to be apart of an event that companies or teams they look up to, get involved with. Not only does this bring the skate community closer together, but the day also brings outsiders closer to our element. Parents and passer-bys get just as excited as the kids do when they see a pro fly through a park, or as someone makes an appearance to talk to and mingle with the skaters. How many skaters are out just impresses some people and they find themselves having to at least take a second look. This young holiday is growing to stand as a beacon for what the skateboarding community stands for, community. To find out more about this holiday click this link.
