Our purpose is to see the youth growing and learning from the more experienced Surfers and Skateboarders in the world but what makes this situation better than any other program is that collectively Beau and Shane who are professionals in their own discipline are passing on this information to the youth.
Rider Convergence is about the coming together of two great friends, two professionals, two sports that compliment each other and experience from two Professionals that truly care about progression and experience.
Rider Convergence doesn’t try to imitate nor do we pretend to be like any other company, we create our own path and show each Rider an experience un like any other, come join us.
