VICFA Committee
Rip'N Ride 9 OCTOBER 21st-22nd. We have moved the event back a month in the aim of attaining warmer weather with longer daylight hours (daylight savings) more media coverage and hopes of a more prominent location.
Entries will go online Monday 6th June 9pm AEST and will be capped once again @100. Previous years have sold out in under 7 minutes. If you are an International rider and you are super keen to be apart of RNR9 please email me ASAP at info@ozfreeride.com as we are limiting those spots to 20 riders. Major sponsors will be able to reserve & nominate a number of their team riders depending on their sponsorship packages for pre entry. On Monday June 6th at precisely 9pm AEST entry forms for all CURRENT REGISTERED MEMBERS of NSWFA, QFWA, VICFA, SCJSC and also including States and Countries who do not have a freeride club or association ( i.e.:- TAS, SA, WA, NZ etc ) can enter. Please contact your state freeride association if you have any queries about your membership status. At 9.30pm this entry form will be removed and replaced with a non member entry form for any positions that remain. Please remember, we are not in this to make money. If it wasn't for the clubs and their members that promote our sport, events like this would not be possible and our intention is to support the people that support us.For all the Rookies out there who are reading this and thinking I don't have the skills or riding ability to enter this event, think again.... the Rip'N Ride originated from a BBQ on the beach to get all levels of riders to socialise and learn from each other in a relaxed social atmosphere. Apart from more entrants, better location, increased spectators and a fantastic pool of sponsors with some of the best prizes up for grabs.... nothing has changed. We encourage the newest of riders to join us for a weekend of action and interaction from all aspects of free riding.Entry fee will be $250.00 AUD, so in the mean time,...
Sunshine Coast Freeride
Featuring: The King of Freeride
6th -7th May, 2016
Alexandra Headlands Beach

This is a Freeride event, to develop, encourage and strengthen the sport within the community. Sunshine Coast Freeride will also incorporate a competition element called ‘KING OF FREERIDE’!
‘King of Freeride’ takes a fresh approach to Freeride events and levels out the playing field for all participants; from rookies to Professionals. The idea behind the format is to enable a new rider to the industry the ability to receive recognition, while at the same time, competing against highly skilled riders, with the chance of ultimately taking home a major prize and being crowned king!

Believe it or not, we are now just under 5 weeks away till the Yamaha NZ Festival of Freeride 4 kicks off big time at Karioitahi Beach. It’s coming round fast. Entires have been flooding in and sponsors are clambering to be involved. It is going to be an absolute smash hit!!

In breaking news this week we are pumped to announce that Mark Gomez, 2015 IFWA World Champion, will be in attendance at the FoF. Thanks to the generosity of a few the champ will be tearing up the mighty west coast surf with you all. Watch out!!

Marks’ riding is next level and extremely energetic, a absolute pleasure to watch. To win the IFWA World Tour, let alone on his rookie year in that competition, is a testament to his ability and passion for the sport. Everyone will have the chance to get out there and ride with him, get a few tips along the way, and after all of that you can join in a bit of banter with him over a beer or two at the pub.

Bring on the Yamaha NZ Festival of Freeride 4!!

p.s. Entries are open for another week so if you haven’t entered better get onto it. Link above in the menu.
Hello Surf Slam Family,

Normally I am writing to say pack your bags, earn some brownie points and book some holidays for the upcoming Surf Slam Oz but it is with regret, disappointment and great sadness that the 2016 Surf Slam Oz will not be proceeding.

The 2015 Surf Slam saw success beyond the management’s dreams and expectations bringing 100 plus riders and the first round of the IFWA World Tour to Alexandra Beach on the Sunshine Coast.

The feedback we have had from the competitors, spectators and the sponsors has been nothing but positive and we were looking forward to repeating that again in 2017.

Unfortunately, there have been some circumstances that cannot be overcome to make the Surf Slam work this year. This is primarily a result of Alex and Maroochydore Surf Clubs booking permits for a solid 2 – 3 months for their 2016 surf carnival. They are expecting 25000 + people so we didn’t get any consideration to share the beach.

Plans are in place for 2017 to bring the event back to Alexandra Headland and to be bigger and better than we have done before!!

The support you have all given to the event especially on occasions of short notice is much appreciated. It has been a pleasure to organize the event and to see the growth of the sport and level of the riders increase over the last 4 years, as the event from a small BBQ to a World Class event. Who knows what we achieve in the future!!

Please keep an eye on the Sunshine Coast Jet Sport website, www.scjsc.com for any upcoming rides and events.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
