This year’s Board Meeting
Come down to the Bristol Board Meeting – 19/10/2019!
We’ll be raising money for Clic Sargent – Young Lives Against Cancer.
Watch this space for more info soon!
What is the Board Meeting?
Every year (ish), we get as many longboarders together as we can and skate from Bath to Bristol, along the Bath-Bristol Cycle Path.
We do this to raise money for charity. In the past we have worked with Sustrans, the British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support and Clic Sargent.
Over the years we’ve raised tens of thousands of pounds for good causes.
It’s just under 16 miles, and takes a few hours to push or pump – more if you stop for a beer along the way!
We usually do a raffle to help us raise even more cash, giving away prizes from longboard companies from all over the world.
We usually have a stop or two along the way for something extra. Slide jams, Jump ramps, Pump Tracks and Skateparks have all featured.
The Bristol Board Meeting is a great day out, and a great opportunity to meet other longboarders, all whilst raising money for good causes – make sure you get to the next one!
Bristol Board Meeting History
He wanted to get more people into long-distance skating.
We had just moved from Sheffield down to our current hometown of Bristol, and realised that we had the ideal venue on our doorstep.
In 2010 we partnered up with our buddies over in Canada at the huge Toronto Board Meeting via our buddies at Toronto Longboard Shop “Longboard Haven”. There’s also been a Board Meeting in Tokyo, so we’re on three continents now!
