Ride the Wave is a Surf, Skate and Music Festival held annually in the picturesque coastal regional town of Port Macquarie, NSW. Ride the Sound Wave is a Music festival event held within Ride the Wave. Our plan is to expand the event from a 3-day event to a six-day to be a bigger and better event scheduled for 17-19 June & 24-26 June 2022.

The festival is designed to support and strengthen youth culture and regional tourism by driving greater visitation to our regional town. The festival includes a Surfing and Skateboard competition across a six-day format that will now expand from 120 competitors in 2021 to over 300 competitors in 2022
