AUGUSTA, Ga.---Dozens of skateboarders came to Skate City Skate Park to celebrate National Go Skateboarding Day. There were beginners as well as those who had been skating for years.

"It's tough to get into it, but once you get into it it starts coming quicker. It's really good exercise for you. It's a good workout basically. It's a fun exercise," said Danny Zwartz, who is Skate City manager.

To celebrate the day the indoor skate park put together a best trick competition and raffled off a couple of boards.

Bo Mitchell who is on HBO's Eastbound and Down was also there participating. Mitchell is from Aiken.
