Ride. Inspire. Lead.

Ride: Boardsports are more than the sports themselves. They’re a way of life; of seeing the world through a lens of creativity, innovation, healthy risk taking, and agility. When we ride sideways our perspective changes: we adapt to the obstacles around us; we are challenged physically, mentally, and emotionally; we become stronger, more resilient, and more confident – on and off the board. We take ACTION.

Inspire: Riding that first wave, learning how to ollie, carving a turn in fresh powder. Support, encouragement, connection with peers and adults. That is inspiration. At Chill, we gain inspiration from being in the elements, from new experiences and profound challenges, from one another, and from ourselves. This is the fuel for our fire.

Lead: We’re a community of riders. We ride together, we grow together, and we lead together. As a young person, it can be hard to find your voice, and sometimes even harder to share that voice. At Chill we create a positive, safe, supportive space that encourages youth to explore their own personal values, to stand up for what they believe in, to be part of an inclusive community, and to be the best version of themselves. This is who Chill youth are. This is what leaders are made of.
