Ride Nature is a 501(c) 3 non-profit action sports missions organization that was founded in June of 2010 with the purpose of bringing the Truth of Jesus Christ to the world through action sports outreach and evangelism. With a focus on action sports international missions we are working alongside international ministries and organizations so that through mission trips, outreach events, and evangelism the Truth of Christ is not only being shared, but also followed up with discipleship!
While recent studies have shown there are an estimated 27 million surfers and 77 million skaters worldwide! Here in the United States there are more children skateboarding than there are playing little league baseball, and in countries around the world like Nicaragua and Costa Rica, surfing and skating are quickly surpassing even sports as popular as soccer! The action sports community is growing faster than ever, not only in the U.S. but all over the world! While there are many amazing organizations reaching out to the youth here in the States, there are very few that are reaching out to the youth internationally.
While the ultimate purpose of our organization remains focused on sharing the message of Jesus Christ we are also working on providing every child worldwide the opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement that actions sports has to offer. With 80% of the world’s population living in poverty most children around the world will never have the opportunity to surf or skate, let alone own a skateboard or surfboard. It is our mission is to give children everywhere the opportunity to not only surf or skate but the gift of a FREE surfboard or skateboard. Through the gift of a free surfboard or skateboard to a child who didn’t work for it, deserve it, or earn it, we are able to share with them the message of Christ and the gift that we have all been given that we too didn’t work for, earn, or deserve.
As we work to continue impacting the world through action sports outreach and evangelism we are desperately seeking the support of others. In fact, without the support of others the majority of the work we do would be impossible. So how can YOU get involved? Join us on a trip. Volunteer. Become a monthly sponsor.
