About

The GFL Series is a national, all ages and skills series in both street and bowl benefiting the Grind for Life Organization, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that assists cancer patients with travel expenses.

This series leads to the Annual Awards and final stop at The Boardr HQ in Tampa where top skaters in each category are recognized. That stop is worth double points in the Season Rankings.
