The Del Mar-Solana Beach Optimist Club sponsored a community youth mountain boarding program for the “Straight From the Heart, Inc.” foster families at the lower San Dieguito Park on July 22. The event featured free, safe, mountain boarding lessons for the children.  All of the necessary equipment was provided by Brad Beren, Optimist Club member, and owner of Boostamonte Mountain Boarding.

The children and families in attendance had a great afternoon, and it was fun watching the children maneuver their mountain boards down the hill after their lessons with much pride and satisfaction of their accomplishment.  Water and nutrition bars were also provided by the Optimist Club.  More youth mountain boarding events are planned in the future.  For information, contact Boostamonte Mountain Boarding at 858-382-0355. For more information regarding the Del Mar-Solana Beach Optimist Club, contact David Eller, club president, at 858-755-2222.
