He is the Godfather of Freeride, a man who brought a whole nation of freerider's together and then extended that connection to New Zealand, Tahiti, The USA, Italy and Brazil. He continues to share the freeride spirit, with France next on the cards for a Rip n Ride style event.
As other events spun off around the country Butch was there to help for nothing but his love of the sport and to ensure they went ahead, confirming the industry would have a bright future.

It also increases event costs, stops new riders and limits the sport. so get onto it.
TAKE THE TIME TO DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS.
