Daily Dose: Toronto Board Meeting
This past Saturday, September the 8th was this year’s Toronto Board meeting. What is this board meeting about you may ask? Not unlike Kollaboration, it is an annual event in which a group of people that share a passion for what they do, come together and display their love for their lifestyle. Now what is it they do you may be wondering? Roughly a thousand people (mostly from Ontario) ride long boards through the streets of Toronto dressed up in dress shirts and ties (get it? Board Meeting). Long boards if you haven’t seen them around are essentially long skateboards. The biggest functional difference is that they’re much more effective for getting around. Especially in the downtown area, long boards have become much more common and have been growing in popularity. Last year there were just over 900 long boarders but this year, despite the rain, a total of 1003 people made it out.
On that note, if you like seeing talented people battle it out, come out to the show because it’s going to happen rain or shine this Saturday September 15th!
