Australian based start-up, Rad Season, is solving the problem faced by thrill-seekers the world over — finding festivals and events dedicated to their adventure of choice, as well as streamlining the organisation that comes with attending.
Rad Season brings together unique action sports and adventure events from across the globe. The free website allows users to search by location, date, and type of action and adventure sport to not only find events, but the closest accommodation and most convenient travel to and from the event.
Users can also engage with other like-minded people who are going to the event, review the event, and become part of the raddest community on earth.
Of the concept, founder Oli Russell-Cowan said:
The concept came about when I was trekking around Latin America. I found it difficult to find cool events and festivals going on that were a bit different and had an element of adventure and general radness to them. I knew that there was always something rad worth going to somewhere in the world, but there was no single platform bringing them together for like-minded people.
Planning adrenaline-based trips used to be a challenge as action sport and adventure travel information was very fragmented. But Rad Season eliminates the click-work by integrating all these elements and making the planning process seamless.
Even if you’re not planning on attending an event, the website is well worth a visit as it helps you discover new events and communities to enhance your love of the sport.
