Icons like Lanky lead from the front at RAD Shows co-ordinating the day providing mentorship, coaching & pro ride displays.
ENERGY & VIBE

MENTORSHIP FOR STREET YOUTH
DIRT TRAIL JAMS
We totally dig dirt! always jumping at the opportunity to stage Dirt Trail Jams where riders of all ages travel extensive distance to attend. As always we go ‘full hog’ setting up the venue with a festival like atmosphere, with flags, banners, marquees, prizes, event t-shirts, the mega massive RAD Show Stereo & a free BBQ lunch. RAD Shows are 100% FREE for riders & their families to attend, with the event itself always featuring a specifically designed t-shirt, & seen here above is loyal team rider, Ash W, wearing his event t-shirt we titled ‘Charmed Dirt’.
THE REAL DEAL
So many riders just like Aidan H pictured above have evolved achieving huge positive progression in behaviour, attitude & value to the community, over-coming an array of issues. Aidan H has earned this level of success over 4 years living the RAD lifestyle whole-heartedly participating in many, many RAD Shows & events. Aidan H now has a valued full-time job as a Boilermaker of which he simply idolises.
ANTI BULLYING EMPOWERMENT
Success is enabled through the positive, inspired, hyper exciting environment created at each RAD Show, with team riders welcoming others, sharing experiences, covering important issues such as bullying. Working as a team, sharing their absolute focus for riding at their best, riders evolve lifting up thriving & responding to this very unique, specialised environment / situation.
Just ask this guy Jaida V, of whom considers it of the great importance to keep his own skatepark of Lytton in Brisbane drug free & protect fellow riders many of whom are seriously struggling with lack of confidence, depression or physical illness.One of these fellow riders mentored by Jaida V, is Dylan C, who endures the illness of Leukaemia.
MUMS FINDING RELIEF & SUPPORT
RAD achieves mass success with riders eagerly wanting to co-operate, participate & most importantly help mum or dad. In-fact this is a rock solid RAD Creed that the riders simply must abide by for their position on RAD. Mum’s relish this new-found positivity & co-operation from their children, with many of these mum’s having become some of our most valued volunteers.
CREDIBILITY & SAFETY
RAD Shows & Development Days always feature a respected RAD Lady Management Team responsible for first aid, rider ‘sign-in’, book keeping & overall event management ensuring ultimate credibility, safety & a swearing free environment overseen by established lady business leaders & community representatives. All RAD personnel carry current Blue Cards.
