20141215_defeis_windells_003Our travel program is a critical aspect of our athletic training programs.  Through travel we believe our students are able to find a specialized passion/focus within their sport, learn about themselves and their inner strength, bond with and create deep connections with their peers and our staff, and discover a passion for adventure with a sense of personal confidence in new environments.  Travel Open’s your eyes to all the possibilities this world can offer you.  Why watch it on the web when you can see it with your own eyes, shrelp it with your own edges and wheels, and live it with your friends?  Start building a life filled with real experiences and amazing people at the Academy!

Snowboard and Ski Program:

The Academy’s Snowboard and Ski students travel to exciting, world renowned destinations to participate in competitions, explore new terrain, cities, cultures, and gaining life experience. We make sure that our athletes get the chance to train at the industry leading terrain parks each year.  It’s critical that you get exposed to and develop comfort in a variety of terrain parks ensuring that you can fully tap your potential in any environment.  Last travel season students traveled to Colorado, Utah, California, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Vermont, Whistler, France, New Zealand, and more.

Skateboard Program:

The Academy’s Skateboard students have the opportunity to travel to explore public and private skate parks all over the United States. They attend skate events like the Street League in Portland, Oregon; the Dew Tour in San Francisco, California; and the Damn Am in Los Angeles, California. Each month our skaters visit a new prominent skate spot or park.  We make sure that you get to skate the places that have helped some of the best skaters in the world make their mark. Last year students traveled to skate parks and secret street spots in Colorado, Arizona, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, Texas and more.
