YouRiding's The Journey: a surfing game with 300 real surf spots

YouRiding has been developing online action sports games since 2007. The first bodyboarding games were a huge success, so the company extended its portfolio to surfing, free skiing, and snowboarding.

Now, YouRiding is hitting the mobile device world with new titles.

Simulating waves in digital interfaces has never been an easy task, but the results achieved so far can be considered enjoyable. Far from perfect, but fun.

"The Journey" is a smartphone/tablet surfing game featuring 300 real surf spots and realistic tricks and maneuvers. Players are invited to pick their favorite surfers and customize a series of options.

The free-to-play game allows you to select products and gear (wetsuits, boardshorts, boards) from real surf industry brands such as Quiksilver, Volcom, Rip Curl, Firewire, Channel Islands, Globe, etc.

If you're a beginner surfer or novice gamer, you can learn how to pull airs and get barreled in the virtual surf school.

Experience the wave characteristics of Teahupoo, Pipeline, Trestles, Mundaka, Jeffreys Bay, and Cloudbreak, and pay attention to the tips shared by famous local riders.

The goal of the game is to unlock all waves by completing the challenges in all 26 world regions.

You can perform cutbacks, top turns, roundhouse cutbacks, tube rides, tail slides, big airs, and tail slides.

"The Journey" allows you to compete against your friends.

The surfing game is available in four languages - English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese - and can be downloaded to iOS and Android devices.
