US Nationals will have top competitors vying for national titles, cash and prizes through exciting head-to-head hybrid, a highly technical tight slalom and a fast giant slalom — all at a gnarly steep hill venue situated in the slalom racing hotbed of the 1970’s! The La Costa Open was first held in 1975 and with the many races that followed – is the longest running skateboard race in the world. Continuing the La Costa legacy – the 2016 US National Slalom Championships will once again bring these legendary roots together with the modern era race scene. The event is sanctioned by the ISSA (International Slalom Skateboard Association) with a Major status official world ranking – making this the top-ranked event in the entire North American hemisphere this season!
