Ride the Wave 2021


Make a Difference PMQ will host the inaugural Ride the Wave Festival at Town Beach Port Macquarie from Friday 18th June to Sunday 20th June 2021

The festival aims to be a premier surfing and skateboarding event held in regional NSW featuring live music, a film and photography contest, battle of the band contest, market stalls, food vendors and a family fun zone! 

Make A Difference (M.A.D) is a not for profit charitable organisation responsible for raising funds to bring the Orange Sky Laundry Van to the Hastings region. Since then we have raised enough money to purchase a food and coffee van to help feed the disadvantaged and less fortunate in our community. 

Ride the Wave is a charity event with all funds raised across the festival going towards completing the fit out of the MAD food van.

We are excited to team with Surfing NSW and Port Macquarie Hastings council to bring this newest fundraising initiative to the Port Macquarie Community.
