Video: 9th Annual Yamaha Cronulla Rip ‘N Ride Surf Freestyle Recap


Late last October, The Watercraft Journal published a complete report and photo gallery from the 9th annual Rip ‘N Ride on Cronulla Beach, Sydney, Australia. One of the continent’s most anticipated freestyle surf (ie. freeride) events has made incredible aerial antics, amazing tricks and frankly, some pretty gorgeous people common place year after year. Add to it the returning title sponsorship from Yamaha Motor Australia, who offered up a brand-new SuperJet to the grand prize winner, and what you’ve got is an awesome event.

While our photo galley came from one of the industry’s best photographers, Andrew “Skip” Donovan, we are always wowed by the video footage captured at this event, and last October’s was no different. From the talents of Andrew Cooney, this past official video of the Yamaha Cronulla Rip ‘N Ride 9 is truly something to behold. It’s a great way to start your week and will definitely make you want to attend this year’s Rip ‘N Ride X (or “ten” for those lacking in the Roman Numeral dept.).

And as Rip ‘N Ride itself wrote, “Big Thank You to all our sponsors, staff, riders and spectators. Look forward to seeing you all at RNRX this coming October.” Enjoy the video below:
