October 15th, 2013. #RIDEMORE is an open invitation for all riders to join in and enjoy the ride in every possible way. Why? Because every day can’t be a bluebird powder day. Some days you can’t even get to the mountain. Some days the best riding is in your hometown. #RIDEMORE is about finding alternative ways to ride wherever you are. To find different terrain, to step outside the ordinary, and most of all – be creative.

#RIDEMORE kicks off on October 15th with the release of O’Neill’s latest film set in Montreal. Featuring team riders Seb Toots, David Wise, Max Parrott, Frederik Evensen, Erica Langman and Veronique Picard – watch as they turn the Canadian city into a freestyle playground – jibbing every imaginable hit. Throughout the season, the creativity continues and our pros will be sharing images and videos on the #RIDEMORE Tumblr page – throwing down the gauntlet that challenges you to think & ride outside the box.

Most importantly, we want to help YOU #RIDEMORE. Why? Because over 60 years ago, Jack O’Neill invented the wetsuit and gave birth to an industry out of a San Francisco garage – just because he wanted to surf longer. We’re here for the same reason we’ve always been here: to enable the world to ride more.

Here’s how you can join the ride…

#RIDEMORE
Every week, we’ll be giving away prizes of outerwear, accessories and headphones – all you need to do is upload and share images or videos that inspire you to #RIDEMORE on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or our Tumblr page…

#FOLLOW THE LEADER
Once a week, one of our pros will post a new trick, tagged with #RIDEMORE and the trick name, e.g. #RIDEMORE#5050. Recreate and share your take on the trick – it doesn’t have to be on snow – and our favorite entries (based on creativity, not craziness) will win prizes and massive kudos.
