Shaka Ride for the cause

Shaka Statue

To celebrate the 10th edition of Ride for the Cause, the association wishes to pay tribute to the community involvement that has been the strength and success of the event over the years. R4tC wants to leave a lasting impression with a strong symbol: the Shaka statue!

The shaka, or hang loose, is a typical sign of unity within the surfing culture, used as a greeting, meaning both “hello” and “goodbye” by surfers the world over. Comparable to the hawaiian and polynesian aloha, meanings peace, love, compassion (and other related feelings), the Shaka symbolises a state of mind characteristic of openness and friendship within a community.
The actions of Ride for the Cause thrive on the spirit and values of Shaka and Aloha : care and respect for others, warm welcome and benevolence, all in a constant search for harmony within beautiful, powerful yet fragile nature. Since 2009, hundreds of volunteers and thousands of visitors gathered around these values. They helped Ride for the Cause raise money for two NGOs active in the fields of education and environment. Ride for the Cause, it’s mostly a community of passionnate people that has grown over time.
The event with strong altruistic resonance has proved over time that everyone can commit to his next, even on a small way. The future of the planet and of humanity depends on this type of commitment.
