Don’t Miss The One Day King of Daytona Beach Event


You’d think that January would be reasonably quiet when it comes to jet skiing, right? Nope. If you’re not already prepping for the Mark Hahn Memorial 300 enduro, then you’re likely readying for any number of boat shows happening near you. Or, if you’re anything like us, you’re getting ready for the annual Daytona Freeride presented by Thrust Innovations. Considered by many as the event to eclipse the IJSBA World Finals in attendance, the Daytona Freeride has one more trick up its sleeve for 2015:

New for 2015 is Aquamoto Global Racing League race divisions. The format is simple: one day of three division racing consisting of five classes. Each division will differ in laps and scored separately. Division 1 will consist of a single moto of 10-12 laps and two classes: 800cc and GP standups. Division 2 will have 8-to-10 laps and include 550/650cc vintage standups and Open-class X2s. The final Division 3 will have 12-14 laps and welcome Open Sport class riders.

Of course, most of you will be waiting to see some of the world’s best freeriders take to the surf, and there’s nothing to worry about. You can rest assured that this year’s Daytona Freeride will be one of the best, but in between all of the aerial action, you can sink your teeth into some awesome Aquamoto closed course racing in the surf between heats – just like racing was meant to be!
