Videos: Plenty of Action From 2016’s Pismo Spring Break Freeride


Screen Shot 2016-03-29 at 10.10.46 PM

While we patiently wait for our own unique coverage from this year’s Spring Break Pismo Freeride to come in, we just spotted two great videos, one being put together by the crew at Cali_JetSkis who were on hand to capture the action both in the surf as well as on the beach. The annual freeride event traces its roots back to freeride hero Joe Kenny and is a strong tradition among West Coast surf riders (and beyond).

Held this past March 11th through the 13th, freeriders from across state lines poured into the Southern California surf spot – one of the remaining few beach locations that allow jet skis to access the beach by water, as typically most of California requires more than three football field’s worth of yardage between the sand and the ski.

For 2016, the surf riding was just as strong as the talent on the water, and for the second video below, you’ll find a very long (33 minutes!) video cut together with a ton of aerial footage of the biggest PWC gatherings in in sunny Southern California. Again, there’s quite a bit of footage, so unless you’ve got a boss who never comes by to check on your TPS reports, you might want to hold off on watching the second video until you get home (or take a long bathroom break).
