Cape Fear Slalom Racing, the City of Winston-Salem, NC and the ISSA are proud to host
the top professional and amateur slalom competitors as they battle for the World title!

The What
World Slalom Skateboarding Championships
ISSA Status: Major

The When
October 18-20, 2019 (Friday/Saturday/Sunday)

The Where

Hobby Park, 2301 W. Clemmonsville Rd,
Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Public / Spectators

The public is welcome to come out and spend the day watching some great racing beginning Friday and continuing through the weekend.
It's free - just BYO - chairs, shade, food/drink as the venue is a county park and there are no services or stores within walking distance.
As a county park, alcohol is prohibited.
Spectator parking and public bathrooms are located at the shelter in the middle of the park.


The soapbox hill on which we run the giant slalom is STEEP and FAST with good length, sloping off and transitioning
to a flat zone before rising up again into an uphill run off. Giant on this hill is a challenge for any skill level.
Foot braking is not necessary.

The track is 19 feet wide, good for dual-lane tight and hybrid. Giant is run as a single lane.
The run-out hill at the other end is not as steep as the main hill.
Right next to the hill is a BIG shelter with charcoal grills and probably enough tables to seat 100 people. Bathrooms are located at the back of the shelter.

SHADE!!!
See all those dark areas stretching across the road? That’s called shade.
Most race locations are unfamiliar with it.
Plus, the same forest providing the shade is also an excellent wind break.
Last year’s race saw wind gusts in the 25+mph range. We never saw a cone move all day.
Anyway, that's Hobby Park. To sum up, it's a PERFECT location for slalom skateboarding. Hope to see ya’ll this October!
This event is sanctioned by the ISSA (International Slalom Skateboard Association)
Major status official world ranking - making this the highest ranked slalom event of 2019!

We are also looking for camping options, although this is not guaranteed. Your first choice should be getting a room.
Rates are good for up to 4 people per room, which helps those on a lesser budget.
Weather this time of year ranges from the 70’s during the day to 30’s at night.
*Hotels in this area fill up fast on weekends with college football games, furniture marts and fall foliage tourists.
We are blessed to have a block by 3 area hotels this early. Please make reservations as soon as you can! All of the
hotels are new or renovated and about a 15 minute drive to all of the race venues. Plus, these hotels are close to
the downtown area for those interested in exploring the nightlife scene.
