Details: Ride Nature is a 501(c)3 non-profit action sports mission’s organization that was founded in June of 2010 and is based in Naples, FL. With a mission statement to “Impact the world through action sports outreach and evangelism” it’s amazing to see the global impact that Ride Nature is truly having. The focus and vision for the organization is to both; Launch new ministries based internationally that will reach out to the youth through action sports outreach; and Also to come alongside existing ministries to provide them with the needed wisdom, assistance, and resources to use action sports as an effective tool to share the Gospel of Christ. Through surf, skate, wakeboard, and snowboard outreach and evangelism, short-term mission trips, and new ministry plants individuals worldwide are hearing the Gospel of Christ and are being given opportunities to get plugged in for long-term discipleship.

Over the past two years we have been working in multiple countries throughout Central and South America including; Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, and Peru. We have also helped to send teams and materials to Egypt and Ethiopia and have built and established 2 international skateparks, one in Guatemala and one in Panama. In 2013 we are currently planning to launch new ministries in India and Africa, to build a third international skatepark in Costa Rica, and are in the process of releasing a full-length evangelistic film that will be used worldwide to share the Gospel of Christ. It truly is a blessing to see the Lord working through Ride Nature and using it all for his Kingdom and glory!
