Skate Skateboarding Ollie Jump Sun Ledge Pier New York City Ishod

Go Skateboarding Day NYC 2013 “Nike SB Safari Demo”

Not only did Go Skateboarding Day NYC 2013 bring out local skateboarders by the thousands, The Nike SB team was also literally “on deck” for an exclusive dockside demo at their groundbreaking Skate Safari park and barge. The unique skatepark is a physical mashup of infamous New York City skate spots like the Brooklyn Banks, OG Seaport benches, and Pyramid Ledges, compiled together to give riders a true “safari tour” of Big Apple skateboard history.

After a day’s itinerary of skating, appearances, and meetups, Nike SB riders Gino Iannucci, Ishod Wair, Paul Rodriguez, Alex Olson, Stefan Janoski, Wieger Weningen, Shane O’ Neill, and Clark Hassler arrived at Pier 88 (W. 47th Street) in high spirits. Skateboarders ambitious and energetic enough to make it out to the waterside location (after all the day’s riding) were granted Safari-side access from the pier to watch their favorite pros and ams put on all the way until sundown–an awesome reward worthy of topping off any skateboard holiday!
