With the annual-event book to capapcity, the rider-entry list spans far-and-wide with international entries from the USA, Europe, Asia and South America.
“Social freeride events like the Yamaha Rip ‘n Ride is the ideal platform for riders to learn and showcase their unique talents in a fun, safe and controlled environment,” said Iain MacLeod, National Sales Co-ordinator for Yamaha WaveRunner. “In addition to the hotly-contested competition, the team operate rider development workshops, which allows the riders to mix it with the pros and learn some new tricks.”
As the main-event of the freeride calendar, the Yamaha Rip ‘n Ride has grown in size year-after-year, quadrupling in competitors and attendance since its conception in 2008. For 2015, the Yamaha RNR8 is destined to be the biggest Freeride event to date.
