YouRiding: right place, right time
Surfing is the grandfather of all action sports, with the first surfers documented in the 1700's on Hawai'i and Polynesian Islands. Now surfing is one the largest sports in the world with a massive uprising from the excitement of big wave surfing to Kelly Slater's (11x world champion) wave pool technology allowing the masses to surf anywhere in the world, whether they're by the ocean or landlocked. YouRiding's ambition is to captivate the international surf community looking for fun experiences tied to the sport of surfing.
