You're invited to take part in the 7th Annual Skate the Coast [Los Angeles], an 18-mile longboarding marathon that promotes an active lifestyle while raising awareness and funds for B4BC's education and prevention programs.  Come out and longboard, bike, or skate for Boarding for Breast Cancer on October 5th!   

The series attracts skaters young and old and of all abilities to push for the cause!

Please help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 for the B4BC's outreach and prevention programs.  Here's how you can get on board:




>> 7:00-10:00pm Register at this celebratory kick-off event and meet fellow riders at Watermans Safe House for Surfers with pro athletes, raffles, music, food and more (22 Pier Ave., Hermosa Beach, CA 90254)



8:00AM Shuttle pick-up at Veterans Park (by Redondo Beach Pier)

>>Post skate celebration and fundraiser hosted by Wahoo’s Fish Taco (free food for participants, music, raffles, prizes for fundraisers, and more!)


Top 2 fundraisers win a GoPro Hero 3* and skateboards, prizes and more!

*Must fundraise at least $500 to win a GoPro Hero 3



Please note: All participants are required to sign waivers.  If you are under 18, you must have signatures from a parent or legal guardian and wear a helmet.  Helmets are MANDATORY for everyone under 18 years old.



SKATE, BIKE, RIDE for those you love!

Have the time of your life and join the growing community of riders committed to the cause!  Some of those who will be Skating the Coast [SoCal] will be dedicating their ride to a friend or loved one.  Others just love to shred the love.  Whatever your reason, it's guaranteed that your first time won't be your last.  It's that awesome.

To participate, ALL RIDERS must fundraise a minimum of $50* (and fill out a waiver!). 

Just by asking 3 friends/family members to pledge $1/mile, or asking for a $10 donation from 5 people, you are already past this goal.  Or - you can pay the amount yourself but it's more fun to share your journey with others!!  You’ll be surprised by how willing people are to help you shred the love.

All participants will receive:

  • Sponsor goodie bag and (2) raffle tickets for Friday Kick-Off Party (must be present to win)
  • Commemorative "Skate the River/Lake/Coast" series shirt
  • If you reach the $50 goal, we will provide you with a waiver at the registration party or email it to you before the event 

*If you participated in Skate the Lake your registration fee for Skate the Coast will be reduced to $25 per event.  Please contact Liza Tagliati at for details.

About B4BC's Skate the Willamette River, Skate the Coast & Skate the Lake


B4BC is proud to announce the addition of Skate the Willamette River in Portland to it's skate series.  Skate the Coast, now in its 7th year, is a one-of-a-kind longboard-a-thon that runs along an 18-mile portion of the Southern California Coastline from the Santa Monica Pier to the Redondo Beach Pier. Its sister event Skate the Lake, now in its 9th year, covers a 28-mile stretch in beautiful Lake Tahoe. The series attracts skaters young and old and of all abilities to push for prevention!

Since its inception these events have collectively had over 1,000 participants, fundraised over $130,000, and gained media coverage from national and local media. Funds raised support B4BC’s education and prevention and support programs, as well as local area non-profits including the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center, the Cancer Support Community of Redondo Beach and we are excited to add to the list a local Portland beneficiary that will be chosen this year.
