K-Coast Surf Shop to host annual Go Skate Day, June 21

(June 21, 2013) K-Coast Surf Shop is scheduled to host its annual Go Skate Day today, Friday, with appearances by professional skateboarders and giveaways, among other activities.

The event will kick off at the 35th Street store with an autograph signing with professional skateboarder Theotis Beasley from 11 a.m. until noon. Tom Schaar, another professional skateboarder, will also be signing autographs at 7 p.m. K-Coast Assistant Manager Garrett Fooks said this is the first time the Mountain Dew sponsored athletes have visited the shop.

Fooks said there will be giveaways throughout the day including a drawing for an Element skateboard. Skate demonstrations will take place at 6 p.m. on Element ramps and rails. Fooks said a deejay will play music during the event.

Element, Dew Tour, Stance Socks and Go Skateboarding Day are sponsors of the event. Go Skateboarding Day was founded in 2003 by the International Association of  Skateboard Companies, as an official annual holiday on June 21 to promote the sport.

Fooks said the event will take place rain or shine and is free for children and adults. Approximately 60 people usually attend the event now in its third year. For more information call the K-Coast Surf Shop at 410-524-8500.
