Get Ready. We’re Headed to a City Near You!
We are kicking off our first-ever City Summer Tour, starting with a BBQ to celebrate Go Skateboarding Day, right in our own backyard! If you want to meet some of the Boosted team, connect with other riders, take a test ride, or just hang out, please join us on June 21st from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at our Mountain View HQ. Check out all the details on our Facebook page here.
But that’s just the start. Over the next four weeks, our team will be in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York (with a quick stop in Boston) hosting a series of demo events and group rides. Come to a demo event to test ride a board and pick up some riding tips from our knowledgeable events team. If you are looking to connect with riders in your city, join one of our legendary group rides. There’s no experience required, although beginners are highly encouraged to come to a demo event first to get some pointers and an opportunity to practice. No board? No problem! We’ll have a limited number of boards available for riders who want to join us, but do not yet own a board. Boards will be available on a first come, first served basis, so please RSVP to the specific Facebook event and leave a comment indicating that you will need a board.
Visit our new city page for a full rundown of events in your area. Be sure to check out our new city videos to get a sense of what it’s really like to ride a Boosted board in the city.
Show Us Your City
We want to see where you ride and what’s so unique about your city, even if you live outside of SF, LA, Chicago, or New York! Take a hyperlapse of you on a Boosted board in your city. Post it to Instagram, and if we feature your video we’ll send you a Boosted t-shirt! Extra points for iconic landmarks and double extra points for hidden gems that you can only experience on a board.
Post it to Instagram, and if we feature your video we’ll send you a Boosted t-shirt!
