Video: Rickter Riders on Tour USA


Way back in March, we announced that Rick Roy and his Rickter RRP team would be documenting their “World Tour,” and showing their exploits in a series of YouTube videos. The RRP team, consisting of Mark Gomez, Pierre Maixent, Brandon Lawlor, Taylor Curtis, Brodie Copp and Abraham “Ho” Hochstrasser, first kicked off their exploits at the first round of the IFWA Freeride World Tour in Australia.

As you could expect, The Watercraft Journal was on hand to provide full coverage of the AJSP OZ Surf Slam. Equally, the RRP team swept the crowd and rose to the top. From there, the team bounced on to Portugal, France, England and USA. This last stop to the States brought the team to the conclusion of the IFWA 2015 tour, the 2015 Blowsion Surf Slam as well as last video of the Rickter tour.


Now, if you’re already read The Watercraft Journal’s coverage from this year’s Blowsion Surf Slam (since we’re the only ones to have published anything from it), you would have already known that Rickter Riders Mark Gomez and Abraham Hochstrasser came away with the title and second place finish from the 2015 IFWA World Freeride championship.

This final video not only recaps the Blowsion Surf Slam (congratulating winners Jordan Fielder, James Juvet, Thomas Scaccianoce, Sean Star, Edgar Quezada and Nicholas Collins), but also takes us to three different locations along the Pacific Coast, namely Pacific City, Oregon; Santa Cruz, Steamer Lane and Lake Nacimiento in Paso Robles, California.
