About Chill LA

 

 

Chill LA was established in 2000, five years after Chill’s inception in Burlington. Since our kickoff season, Chill LA has served more than 1,200  youth across Los Angeles. Today, Chill LA offers a surf program and a skateboard program. 

Through these programs, we teach important life lessons like Respect, Patience, Persistence, Courage, Responsibility, and Pride.

Chill works with youth from low-income communities, juvenile justice, mental health, drug treatment, transitional housing, foster care, and after-school programs to overcome challenges they are facing in their everyday lives.

Skate 

We hosted our first full six-week skate program in the fall of 2015. Our program features private lessons for our teens provided  by Skatelab, and a pre-skate “classroom” area to delve into our weekly life lessons. All boards were generously donated to us from Board Rescue. This year, we are proud to announce that we've added an afternoon session as well, doubling the youth enrolled in our skate program! 

 

Surf

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.
