The Tim Brauch Foundation provides outreach programs in action sports. Each of these programs offers a value-based leadership curriculum that enhances the participants experience by promoting self-respect, meeting challenges with perseverance, independence, creativity and integrity, all while participating in an outdoor sport camp environment and therefore supporting an active lifestyle.
There are two annual skateboard contests that serve as the primary fundraisers to support the Foundation. These contests include Northern California�s largest professional bowl contest and an amateur street/park contest. A The Tim Brauch Professional Bowl Riders contest draws thousands of spectators and showcases the world�s top professional skateboarders. It also allows the opportunity for up and coming amateurs to showcase their talents, by allowing top ams to participate along with the pro�s in the main event.
Our amateur street/park contest serves as a springboard for up and coming athletes. Past winners have included now top professional skaters Emmanuel Guzman, Raven Tershy, and Nyjah Huston.
Woodward West is a premier skateboard camp located in Stallion Springs, CA situated in the Tehachapi Mountains. Skaters have upwards of 2 hours a day of personal training from staff. They move into 9 hours a day to work on all things they have learned with skaters at their general level. They compete in contests and have other fun ways to improve their skills. Basically, they skate all day in parks that feature quarter pipes and rails to the Mega Ramp. Hanging out with Pro's and industry people in addition to the training is a recipe for success.
