It’s our favorite time of year again: Ride 4 the Cause! Taking place on Aug 26-27 in Montreux, Switzerland, Ride 4 the Cause is an amazing two day Stand Up Paddle charity event which benefits local and international NGOs, WAVES for Development (that’s us!) and The Summit Foundation. It has evolved over the years to include live DJs, a skate area, slack lining, yoga, a Kids Corner, sunset Jam Sessions and creative SUP feats… Oh and don’t forget the great food, drinks, prizes and amazing sponsors! We are so proud and grateful to be including in this incredible event. If you are in the Montreux area later this month, we encourage you to participate by registering here#StayWild #RideOn

If you’re new to the Ride 4 the Cause event, it was started back in 2009 by ours truly, Sylvain Gaeng, initiator of WAVES and Swiss surfer.  Since then, the event has raised over 103’000 Swiss Francs for NGOS focused on education, campaigns to reduce the environmental impact of human activities, and the use of sports as a vector of development.

The 2016 event was a great success with more than 5000+ people who’ve enjoyed various activities at the waterfront in Montreux. Summer sun, good jams, paddling, and partying was around all weekend long…

We encourage everyone to attend the event on August 26-27, 2017 in Switzerland or to consider donating to help keep the mission alive that benefits initiatives and organizations like ours at WAVES.
