Wave Riding Vehicles stands for surfing and has been spreading the Aloha throughout the world since 1967. Today, WRV continues to support surfing in all its forms and off shoots. Traditional or competitive it’s all about being on the water.

 WRV Stands UP for SUP and is producing an inaugural ocean SUP competition in Virginia Beach - The WRV DOLPHIN DASH PADDLE BOARD CHALLENGE. The race day is Saturday, May 3rd, 2014, at the Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront on 31st on the boardwalk. 

WRV plans to make DOLPHIN DASH a signature Virginia Beach annual event for years to come!  WWW.WRVDolphinDash.com 

The WRV DOLPHIN DASH events will begin on the beach and enter the ocean heading south toward Rudee Inlet and looping back up the oceanfront.  There will be a 13 mile elite course sponsored by Dakine, a 7.5 mile long course sponsored by Live the Life - Virginia Beach and a Hilton Hop two mile short course. Each event will have a beach finish.  The WRV DOLPHIN DASH is a WPA points-sanctioned event. All three events feature 14', 12'6", Under 12'6' and Prone Paddle Board divisions.  Red Bull is the proud sponsor of the PRONE CLASS events!
