With only two months until the event, everyone is getting excited. My phone has been a buzz regarding accommodation, entry, the new site and sponsorship.
I have sent the sponsorship proposal out this week with a very positive response. If I have missed you or your business please let me know and I will be happy to include you on the list. We are hoping to list the sponsors from the 17th of March which will allow us to give maximum exposure to those that have come board.
It is with great excitment and releif that I can now announce that Simon Lecompte and his team will be joining us as the saftey crew. As an event organiser, when planning this year's event, my first priority was rider safety. Simon's team provides uncomprised safety so his commitment makes me feel confident in planning the event.
We have had a reply regarding the accommodation from the Break Free Alexandra Beach and Mandolin resorts. I have attached a PDF with instructions and the promo code...
Massive Props goes out to Ozfreeride member Fitty for donating a bunch of clothes to one of our mates in the Blue Mountains. Sean lost everything last year and insurance has been a real battle for him. At least now he looks like a freerider while he overcomes the aftermath.
Also a mention to Hakan and Ovey for their offers. He had no car left for a Wetseat!!
Just got word off local council and dates are looking almost certain to be September 18-20. Entries will go online in April and will be capped @100. Last year RNR6 sold out in 33 minutes and it would be fair to say that record will be broken. If you are an international rider and you are super keen to be apart of RNR7 please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Major sponsors will be able to reserve & nominate a number of their team riders depending on their sponsorship packages for pre entry. Riders that have entered in all previous six Rip'N Rides are guaranteed entry and free of charge. Im sure you know who you are and thanks again for your ongoing loyalty.
It is with great sadness two of our Freeride family members have been dealt a tragic loss today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tezza, Beau and extended family at the loss of their wife and mother, Deb.
As a community we know how much Deb supported her boys in the sport we love and hope that we in turn can support the Woodwards in their time of need.
May she rest with the angels.
There have been many calls, emails and texts about what is happening on the Sunshine Coast and if the Surf Slam will return in 2014.
The answer is YES and we have been waiting until the Huck n Hold and QWFA Showdown were finished so you could focus on two quality events. Well done to Nick and QFWA on two fantastic events! Everyone is pumped and we are hoping to ride the wave of excitement with our event.
So start packing your bags and earning some brownie points as this year’s event will be huge!!!
Sunshine Coast Jet Sport Club are proud to present the 2014 SURF SLAM. This will consist of a two day event that includes the third round of the Krash Series and Rip'n'Ride....
