Wavedaze 2014 Wrap-up

Apr 2014 16 borrowed from Prorider… RonnyMac Report: Wavedaze 2014 With Gallery Once again, the ONLY magazine to actually be there… Pro Rider landed in Virginia Beach to cover Wavedaze for the second year in a row. This event has become one of the most popular freerides of the year due to great rider turnout and the hard work of Dan Swartz and the Wavedaze crew.

Wavedaze 2011 2.0 Wrap-up

October 7-9, 2011 Wavedaze 2011 was a great event because of the sponsors and riders that promote the sport everyday.  Free ride events like Wavedaze would not be possible without the support of our sponsors.  The true spirit of Wavedaze came out shortly after the October event.  Wavedaze was able to initiate a donation drive with $2000 to the Kevin Bruins Family Education fund.  Sadly Kevin, a fellow free rider, lost his life while enjoying the sport he loved.  With the generous support of the free ride community, X-H20 and many others, we have raised over $8000 so far....

Others joined us on a leisurely cruse up the coast escorted by friendly dolphins and a bit of history at the Cape Henry lighthouse. Freeriders stayed close to the beach and ripped the few waves that came our way. The parties continued...
