Spot Your Ride with A New Geotag Application

Get the scoop on the best ride and where to find it with Spotyride. Created last year in the South of France by program management expert, Sophie Combettes-Sirech, and Wakeboard’s World Champion Philippe Sirech, Spotyride – short for spot your ride – is a geotag application that serves as a digital community marketplace. It can recommend destinations such as wake parks and schools and identify nearby activities like paddle boarding, water skiing, jet skiing and surfing, plus provide a place for real-time exchange for everyone from novice to professional riders alike. 

A major advantage is that Spotyride gives operators a way to promote their activities that’s as easy as managing a Facebook page,” says media spokesman, Daniel Pilo. “For example, Eric ‘Rico’ Lespagnon, owner of the Miami Wake Academy, can use his personal access code and in one click change the information and upload photos and videos on his Spotyride page. The community can see this immediately.  For an upcoming event, he can write an article through his page and it goes directly to the general blog Spotymag. Within a few days, Lespagnon is able to send direct notifications to inform the community about discounts on any unreserved bookings.”

Available in English on iOS and Android stores, Spotyride can now recommend over 2,000 spots worldwide. www.spotyride.com
