2018 MISSION TRIPS

Listed below are our 2018 international mission trips. We would love to invite you to join us on one of these trips as we travel to impact the world through action sports outreach, evangelism, and discipleship. Through each of these trips our mission and goal is to come alongside our international partners to assist them in the work the Lord is doing both in their community and the regular and consistent outreach they are leading. Through work projects, outreach events, contests, and events, our hope is to introduce as many individuals to the Good News of Jesus Christ through these trips and plug them into a local church body for continued discipleship. If you are interested in having Ride Nature lead you, your school or youth group on a mission trip please email us at trips@ridenature.com.

This will be the 1st of 10 trips filmed for a new film project we’re working on in 2018 titled “To the ENDS”. Part of the objective with this trip will be to film with the leaders, recording their stories and testimonies, and share the impact for what is happening in the Philippines.

This will be our 3rd trip to the Philippines and we will be working with several leaders there that we have become very close with. Some of the cities that we will be spending time in and hosting events include, Davao City, Mati, Manila, and Naga. This trip will be very fast paced, we’ll be moving around and traveling a lot, and doing a lot in a short amount of time. Because the Philippines are so spread out and we have so many strong connections with the leaders there, we always want to make the most of our time in this country by visiting as many of these leaders as we can. We will be flying into Manila, jumping on another flight to Davao, driving to Mati, driving back to Davao, flying back to Manila, taking a bus to Naga, bus back to Manila and then flying home. A travel pillow is highly recommended and you might want to bring a few extra dollars for some energy drinks.

This country truly is one of the most amazing places that we’ve been and the people are incredible. We’ll be skimboarding, skating, surfing, and wakeboarding. You’ll be on two different islands and get to see lots of this amazing country.
Trip Cost: $650 + Flight (This will include all wakeboarding, board rentals, food, lodging, and transportation on the ground)
Leaving from Miami // Landing in Manila, Flying to Davao, back to Manila and then home. (Please contact us before booking any flights on your own.)

Japan // January 29th-February 6th

While we have spent a little time in Tokyo via several layovers to Asia, this will be our first time leading a group of individuals into Japan. This will also be stop 2 for our “To the ENDS” film project. Not only will this be our first time leading a group into Japan but it will also be our first time doing some snowboarding outreach on a mission trip. We’ll be traveling to spend time with a leader that we’ve been talking to and emailing with for close to 4 years now and excited to see what doors open up for us to partner longterm in Japan. We’ll be landing in Tokyo and then heading to Hokkaido. We’ll spend several days there, we’ll be snowboarding in Nesako for 3 days, traveling back down to Tokyo and then our last day will be spent in Shiba. Because this is our first trip to Japan, it will be a bit of a “pioneer” mission trip as we will be exploring longterm opportunities for partnerships. We’ll be doing leadership training and a lot of encouraging the leaders who are on the ground serving. It’s a quick trip but with lots of adventure packed into a few days!
Trip Cost: $650 + Flight (This will include all snowboarding, lift tickets, food, lodging, and transportation on the ground)
