Wavedaze 2010 Wrap-up

Wavedaze 2010 Wrap-up

Freeriders put aside thoughts of the Economy and Politics in October for a successful Wavedaze event in Virginia Beach, Virginiahosted by the Virginia Beach Wavejunkies.  Freeriders and rec-riders from all over the country came together to ride and raise some cash for local charities. 2010 was a huge success, raising $1600 for Vigilant Watch (supports local police and rescue personnel facing hardships), $500 for the Virginia Beach Volunteer Water Rescue Squad, $1000 for the AWA, and drew 129 registered skis from 16 states and Canada.

Flatwater Friday at First Landing State Park gave riders time for plenty of tuning to get geared up for the weekend of surf. Freeriders caught up with each other, and partied into the evening at Chix’s Café.

The ride area opened on the oceanfront for a full weekend of Moto-surf.  Good surf greeted riders on Saturday, allowing many to push the envelope of big air and inverts!  Multiple riders conquered the back flip, while others attempted nearly impossible feats yet lived to tell about it.  The Poker Run and Tower Endurance Challenge were cancelled due to safety concerns. Saturday night offered more fellowship and generous sponsors allowed for a huge charity raffle with hundreds of prizes. More partying ensued at Diesel Rock and Country Bar.

A nor’easter rolled in Sunday and brought near washout conditions.  Yet several riders braved the blistering conditions to ride proving yet again that freerider’s are a hearty group.
