For Go Skateboarding Day 2022 we enlisted Slam team and family to see what we could gather on a simple trip through the city. Our day was blessed by a heavy crew who were out in full force. Jak Pietryga, Darius Trabalza, Neil Smith, Helena Long, Jeremy Jones, Amanda Perez, Jamie Arghhh, Tom Tanner, Nick Stansfield, Jarrad Carlin, Nick Jensen and Rob Mathieson were our squad on the road. We were also excited to have legendary lensman Wig Worland with us shooting photographs.
Neil Smith meandering through town with a purpose
This mission evoked many memories of countless weekends spent exploring the city having met at the Slam shop first. All of the following images were captured by Wig Worland and our gallery closes with the video shot to accompany them. To view a wealth of other selects from our day out make sure you check the article published by Grey Skate Mag.
We were truly invigorated by how Go Skateboarding Day made us feel this year and we hope it inspires you to go out there and do the same. London is your playground, pick a direction and see what surprises it has in store for you.
