TRIP SCHEDULE

Listed are our upcoming 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.

 

MOROCCO

JUNE 2-12

Trip Overview // The first portion of the trip we will be in Dar Bouazza, Morocco. Over ten years ago a family decided to move to a place they didn’t know much about other than that there was surf. Built from the ground up they started Kai Surf with a shaping bay right in the middle of it all. They employ and teach local Moroccans how to start with a block of foam and end with handcrafted surfboards. Gently handed down from family to family they’ve become active, valued, and trusted members of the community over time. We’ll be helping out at a two-day surf event with a local orphanage in the area. For the second portion of the trip we will take a long bus ride down the coast of Morocco and land in Taghazout. We’ll be teaming up with the skate park managers. In 2018 the Make Life Skate Life skatepark in Taghazout opened and has been a safe place for skaters in the community to skate for free. Ali is the man in charge and we will be hosting a few contest in the park as well as helping with a few projects. We’ll be finishing up the trip with some free time wandering around Taghazout and Agadir, we’ll explore the Medina, local food, and all of the traditional Moroccan architecture. This is a trip that you don’t want to miss out on.  

Trip Cost: $850 in country + flight (Round Trip into Casablanca)

COLOMBIA

JUNE 17-23

Trip Overview // If you are looking to "skate and serve" this is 100% the trip that you need to be on with us in 2019! Every year on June 21st, cities around the globe gather together to celebrate their love for skateboarding. This day is known as “International Go Skate Day”. We’ve been to some of the biggest cities in the world and definitely many that have a love for skateboarding but we’ve yet to discover a city with a passion so deep for skateboarding as Medellin, Colombia!

This will be our 3rd time to return to Medellin, but only our second year to help host the Go Skate Day activities in Medellin. After last year, the events went so well that we've been asked to return and help host them again. During our time in Medellin, we will be visiting multiple skateparks, hosting contests, giving away boards, and sharing the Gospel along the way.

Trip Cost: $850 in country + Flight (Round trip to Medellin)

COSTA RICA

JULY 1 - 9

Trip Overview // Costa Rica is one of our favorite places to travel as an organization. Costa is such a beautiful country, tons of opportunities for surf and skate outreach, and a massive need for ministry. With strong contacts with leaders all over the country, we’ve led over a dozen trips to Costa Rica and have hosted outreach events in numerous cities. Our objective with every trip we lead to Costa is to encourage the leaders, minister to the action sports community through outreach events and evangelism, and train up the next generation to leaders in the action sports community.

If you're looking for an opportunity to serve the Lord while surfing and skating, this trip is the perfect chance to combine your love for Christ and action sports. During our time in Guanacaste, we will be visiting multiple skateparks and beaches hosting contests, giving away boards, and sharing the Gospel along the way.

Join us as we travel to the Guanacaste Region of Costa Rica, the land of “Pura Vida”!

PUERTO RICO

AUGUST 1 -7

So close, yet like another world….Puerto Rico! For those in Florida, it’s a short flight and cheap trip. No passports are needed for this trip since Puerto Rico is a part of the U.S. which also helps keep the costs down. PR is full of action sports enthusiasts, world class surf, incredible street skate spots, lots of fun skateparks, yet still a ton of need, especially since they took on so much damage from the Hurricane in 2017. We would love to have you join us this upcoming summer as we return to Puerto Rico. There will be lots of surfing and skating, but also some intentional time to talk about life, God, the Bible, and what it really looks like to be a follower of Jesus. We’ll be teaming up with our mission partners there in Country and hosting some surf camps, skate outreach, and visiting multiple skateparks all centered around sharing the Gospel. On our free day we’ll do some hiking, cliff jumping, and some swimming under a massive waterfall.

Trip Cost: $650 in country + flight to San Juan

PANAMA

In 2012 we first traveled to Panama where we linked arms with several other ministries to build the first ever indoor skatepark in Panama, Canal Skate. We’ll be leading several trips back to Panama in 2019 and would love to have you join us! We will be rebuilding the skatepark, doing some renovations to that and helping to host some skate events in Panama City, Paraiso, and some surrounding communities. In a partnership with Rio Missions, we’ll also be doing some work projects with some local churches and help to assist in the ministry taking place in Panama.

We will engage in skatepark outreach with some competitions and beach clean ups on the Sea of Galilee. Price includes housing, dinner and all transportation in country.
