Toronto Board Meet 2011- More Popular than Jesus in the City!

On Saturday, September 9th, I attended the 2011 Toronto Boardmeet. The Boardmeet is an absolutely massive congregation of longboarders.

The total attendance was more than double what it was last year. From the counts I’ve heard, this years numbers topped 900 longboarders! That’s over double last year’s showing of over 400.

The route began at St. Clair and Yonge at David Belfour Park. View Toronto Boardmeet Route 2011 in google maps for the exact route we took!

As always, I’ve uploaded large pics and scaled them down. Feel free to right click to view the pics bigger and in more detail!

Down we go!

May have exaggerated the lighting on this one for added epicness.

Over 900 longboarders stopped traffic along Bloor St.

Tons of girls at this years meet. Could I grab your number real quick?

Longboarding is an all-ages sport!

Longboarding down University Avenue. Sorry Cars! (Longboarders please note and appreciate the insincerity in that apology)

Phew, finally made it to Nathan Phillips Square. Time for a head count!

This may take a while. Line up. All of you.

... I said ALL OF YOU!!!!!

Time to mess up King Street's day!

Time to live it up in Kensington! Lovin' the longboard circle around the kiddie pool!

Thanks to everyone who came out to show their support for this awesome pass-time of ours. And a special thanks to the organizers, because without them, this wouldn’t be possible!
