Video: When Krash Army Stormed The Beaches of Daytona Freeride


Let’s begin by acknowledging that this video is from the 2016 Blowsion Freeride – not this most recent one that happened a couple of weeks ago. But with Daytona on our minds, we wanted to turn back the clock and revisit one of our favorite bits of video footage from the first days when Krash Industries introduced their RTP (Ready to Perform) series of 50 CAL, Reaper and Predator skis.

The video does a great job capturing the spirit of the Daytona Freeride as well as the stoke shared by Krash Industries’ owner Nick Barton, as well as then-Krash Army riders Zack and Jake Bright, and Chris Grace. The RTP lineup has only gotten better, and priced at a super-entry level $12,000 regardless of hull/deck or color, they’re the perfect segue into the world of freeride and just jet skiing in general.

Here’s the original caption for the video when it went live in 2016, “Videographer Dan Mizicko gets behind the scenes at this past Daytona Beach Freeride 2016 and truly encapsulates the camaraderie and lifestyle among members of the Jet Ski community. Closely following Krash Industries owner Nick Barton, professional team riders Zack Bright, Jake Bright and Chris Grace, as well as team mechanics Joe Grace and Jonathan Denham, you really get a sense of how much it means to be a member of the Krash Army.”
