The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and thanks to the International Association of Skateboard Companies Go Skateboarding Day is an official annual holiday. In Celebration, Boosted Boards hosted a group ride, starting at 6:30 in Columbus Circle.

Although the technology has not been created to help people understand the applications of the Gopro Fusion, Jordan is breaking through a new kind of shell. It's revolutionary, It's weird, and it's super cool.

 One time I saw Bobby riding down the West Side Highway on a Boosted Plus with a board in the Boosted Backpack, another in his hand, while texting. He claims to be able to handle 5 boards at once while riding. I don't doubt it...

 Melanie is one of two female riders I have seen out there. She rocks!

Girls get out here with us! It's so much fun and you would honestly be surprised as to how much you would learn about the most random tech stuff. I've learned a ton already!

Quick Charge

The Shops at Columbus Circle were strict but fair; Thanks guys!

During this period of charging the larger group broke up into smaller groups and went to various charging locations and eateries. At which point I teamed up with some other Eboard riders.

Our next destination was Kung Fu Tea on Saint Marks. The road ahead, with these boys, pro mode only.
