There is progression in developing skills to ride the Brush Ramp. While achievable and fun for all those keen to ride, the skills, fitness and tricks take time to develop.
We have a dedicated team of Pro Riders who have each developed different styles of riding. We have implemented a good foundation and infrastructure creating the competition element.
Each BrushBoarding facility will stimulate its own local network of riders, in turn generating competent and skilled riders, allowing them to compete in local, national and international competitions through our strategic network. The best local riders will be sponsored by us and given incentives to attend BrushBoarding events worldwide.
This network has high value to the riders, the facility and the brand partners associated to our global sporting infrastructure.
