GoldCoast Unveils The Beacon Cruiser Inspired By San Diego Surf Spot

Inspired by a surf spot on in Leucadia, North County San Diego, The Beacon Cruiser was created by GoldCoast with the surfer, skater, and traveler in mind. Read more about the brand’s creative spin on the cruiser board:

December 6, 2012 (Salt Lake City, Utah and Encinitas, Calif.) - The Beacons surf spot of San Diego inspired the design and function of GoldCoast's new cruiser board, The Beacon. Beacons surf spot is located in the city of Leucadia just north of Encinitas. The graphic was inspired and created in search of the perfect spot. Whether it's your perfect skate or surf spot, The Beacon will guide you there with its functional design and soft cruiser wheels 

"The board was created with both the traveler and skater in mind - it's small enough to travel with and I love the way it rides," says Dustin Ortiz, art director for GoldCoast. 

The 26" long by 7.875" wide board with a 13.25 wheelbase is constructed of 5-ply bamboo/maple hybrid, genuine GoldCoast A7 ball bearings, 129mm Century trucks and finished off with 60mm, 78a Cherry Bomb wheels. The Beacon's wider and longer tail has the ability to cruise with plenty of pop to ollie in the streets, skateparks or wherever else your travels take you.

GoldCoast's entire line is now available for sale around the world. Connect with the brand on Twitter and Instagram @skategoldcoast and Facebook at
