ABOUT RIDE NATURE

Ride Nature is a 501(c)3 non-profit action sports missions organization dedicated to impacting the world through action sports outreach, evangelism, and discipleship.

Founded in 2009, our mission and goal is to reach youth on a global basis with the Truth of Jesus Christ while working to equip and empower leadership to utilize action sports as an effective tool for ministry. Since 2009 we have been blessed to lead nearly 20 action sports focused mission trips to multiple countries around the world, given away over 500 boards, and recently produced a full length film titled, “PURPOSE”.

Recently USA TODAY announced that in the United States there are more children between the ages of 7-18 SKATEBOARDING than there are playing little league baseball. In many countries around the world the action sports culture and industry is rapidly exploding and quickly becoming more popular than sports even as widespread as soccer. The surf/skate industry is one of the biggest influences on youth not only in the U.S., but worldwide. At Ride Nature, our goal is to utilize this influence as an effective tool to point youth to Jesus Christ.
