"Imagine a game where the goal is to learn everything about the sport [of bodyboarding] and where the player gets to experience actual waves, riders, equipment and become part of a true community,” CEO of YouRiding, Mike Jegat, suggested in a recent release.

That game is The Journey, a free-to-play bodyboarding video game made by riders for riders.

The premise of new game is to travel the world in search of perfect waves and to become the best rider along the way.

Players have the chance to learn about pros such as Mike Stewart and Pierre-Louis Costes and to customize each rider with products offered from action sports industry brands.

Surf the great Teahupoo, Pipeline, The Wedge or one of more than 300 waves that offer real-life game physics that match what the player would likely encounter if they traveled to these far-flung destinations.

The Journey is available for download on iPhones, iPads and Android devices.
