Inspire Adventurous Living

Adventurous living is heading outdoors in pursuit of those feelings and moments that make us come alive.

About Us

Riparide is a community website for adventure stories and rentals. A place people can rent out their adventure stuff (log cabins, kombi campers, mountain bike tours, surfboards etc) to others wanting to embark on adventures. People can also post their adventure stories with links to rentals, giving others the ability to book stuff through authentic & inspiring stories.

Inspire Adventurous Living

We are all born adventurers. As kids we explore parks, we climb trees, play with rocks and have an imagination that runs wild. But as we grow, the pressure of modern living slowly grinds away at our adventurous spirit. Years of school, parent's expectations, screen time, hectic lifestyles and society's demands will eventually get you to behave in a prudent way.

We have made it our purpose at Riparide to inspire adventurous living in everyone, to help people connect with their spirit of adventure and bring back that child-like sense of wonder and exploration.

Adventurous living at its simplest, is heading outdoors in search of activities that excite, challenge and centre us. Whether it's paddling out for an early morning surf, embarking on a solo hike, dropping into a metre of powder or drifting down rivers, it’s about pursuing those feelings and moments that make us come alive.

If Riparide can help people experience a more authentic and fulfilled life, connect with friends and family and grow a respect for nature's playground, then we’ve done our job.
