Los Angeles Manager
The Chill LA site was established in 2000, five years after Chill’s inception in Burlington. Since our kickoff season, Chill LA has served over 1,200 underserved youth across Los Angeles. After 13 successful years of running a winter program, Chill LA developed year-round initiatives! Summer 2014 marked the start of our annual surf program, and we’re now expanding our opportunities to include skateboarding, too.
Location: Skatelab in Simi Valley
We hosted our first full six-week skate program in fall 2015. A successful program featured private lessons for our teens provided by Skatelab, and a pre-skate “classroom” area to delve into our weekly life lessons. All boards have been generously donated to us from Board Rescue.
In 2014, we held our first-ever LA Girls’ Skate Day at Exposure 2014 in Encinitas. Exposure is a nonprofit dedicated to providing female skaters an avenue to succeed and financially supporting survivors of domestic abuse.
All skate programs are provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.
Location: Will Rogers Beach, Pacific Palisades, CA
We have partnered with Boarding House Mentors to host our summer surf programs. We surf for six weeks in June and July with each teen in a private, one-on-one lesson. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.
Location: Mountain High, CA
Program participants ride as a group to and from the mountain each day from our gear space in Fontana. The teens meet here before program to gear up–we provide snow jackets, snow pants, boards, bindings, boots, helmets, and gloves to all of our teens to ensure safety on the mountain.
