Emerica Celebrates Go Skate Day in LA!

June 21, is international "Go Skateboarding Day" and to celebrate Emerica will host its seventh annual Wild in the Streets initiative for the first time in downtown Los Angeles.

Wild in the Streets was developed as a community event to raise awareness for skateboarding and its positive impact on today’s youth, and has drawn thousands of skateboarders, young and old, to events in New York, Vancouver, Montreal, Madrid, London, and Tampa.

Emerica professional team skaters including Andrew Reynolds, Brandon Westgate, Leo Romero, Ed Templeton, Kevin Long, and others will join thousands of skateboarders and follow a five-mile route through the heart of downtown Los Angeles.

Wild in the Streets benefits Boards for Bros, a non-profit developed by a group of skateboarders in Tampa, Florida, who collect and refurbish skateboards so they can be redistributed back into communities across the country for children who cannot afford their own. Boards for Bros works to show that skateboarding can help children learn discipline, respect, and perseverance that will assist them throughout their entire lives, while having fun and exercising.
