Ride4water begins as Ryan Delamater rides his bicycle from the scenic wilds of the Canadian backwoods to the tropical highlands of South America. Going through a divorce and totally depressed he sets out on this bicycle ride to heal and try to find his way. As he rides he learns that people don't have clean water in a little village in El Salvador and starts taking surf trips there with his friends to help. They forge lifelong friendships with Mapache, Tiola, Papo, Gato, Doreen & Francisco.

They decide to install an Ocean Based Clean Water Platform that will distribute 10,000 Gallons of clean drinking water a day from the Ocean. This is enough water for 2000 people a day in Palmarcito and the surrounding areas. This system helps start a local church where people eat papusas, surf, skate, drink coffee ,have a lot of clean water to drink & help #spreadtheshred.
