The Watercraft Journal is Looking to Hire a Freestyle/Freeride Editor


Are you an aging hipster becoming more and more dissatisfied with the aura of your neighborhood espresso bar? Or are you a shiftless millennial frustrated with the progress of your manuscript? No? Good. ‘Cause we don’t want ya. The Watercraft Journal is looking to pay you upwards to $1,000 a month just for writing about your favorite sport. No, not lacrosse. Jet skiing. And more specifically, freeride and freestyle. All you gotta do is put in an extra hour or two a day worth of work, and bam! It’s that easy.

Because The Watercraft Journal continues its aggressive industry-leading daily (Monday-through-Friday) publishing schedule, and we need as much help as we can get to continue to entertain and inform our ever-growing readership, we’re excited to announce that we’re hiring! We’re looking for self-motivated, dedicated enthusiasts looking to work with the single most popular PWC magazine in North America to help provide a focused spotlight on our sport’s best freeride/freestyle riders, manufacturers and events! Here are the details below:

Freeride/Freestyle Editor
Shaw Group Media, the publisher of The Watercraft Journal ( is looking a self-motivated, energetic person to hire as Freestyle/Freeride Editor. The F/F Editor must have strong ties to this segment of the personal watercraft (PWC) industry, be familiar with proper terminology, technology and persons/companies therein. The F/F Editor should be the “expert” in this subject, and be able to field questions as they come in.

The F/F Editor doesn’t necessarily need to attend each and every event, but personal attendance is strongly encouraged. Likewise, the F/F Editor should be personally responsible for providing most F/F-specific news and coverage, but doesn’t need to be the sole contributor to The Watercraft Journal’s F/F coverage. The F/F Editor will work closely with the rest of the Editorial and Sales teams to develop new feature content and welcome in F/F-specific potential advertisers.

Riding ability, photographic talent or writing experience is appreciated and encouraged, but not necessarily mandatory.

The Freeride/Freestyle Editor position is a 1099 subcontractor position and will be paid twice a month per a predetermined scale for each written article. There will be a 90-day trial period for every applicant to evaluate work ethic, determination and commitment to providing superior, reliable freeride/freestyle PWC content for The Watercraft Journal audience.

All serious inquires are to email introductory “cover letter” and resume to
