Finish that rocker, tighten those limiting straps and check those tow loops ....it's time to hit the surf!

The Pismo Freeride is a laid back get together for us jet skier's to ride the surf all day and party by the campfire all night (ya right, we'll all be wrenching). So throw your 550's, Rickter's and SJ's on the trailer and join us at Pole 4.

If you've never heard of the Pismo Freeride, watch this video to get an idea of what it is. If you have heard of the Pismo Freeride, watch this video to get amped up for another ride!

Now the details:

The ride location will be Mile Marker 4 in the Oceano Dunes SVRA (http://www.ohv.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=1207). It is $5 a day for a day use pass, or $10 a night for camping. I highly recommend making a camping reservation using the new Reserve California website. They do limit the number of vehicle in the park, a camping reservation guarantees you access.

You will be driving on the beach and possibly through a small creek to get to the ride spot so 4x4 vehicles are highly encouraged but not required. If you choose not to bring a 4x4 vehicle, stick to the wet, hard packed sand when possible. Those of you with large trailers, heavy trucks and RV's be prepared to air down your tires. Plywood for under the tires is helpful to have on hand. Don't worry, plenty of us will have straps, shovels and trucks on hand to get everyone on and off the beach.

Of course, Quads, ATV's, UTV's and the like are welcome. If you have these as well as skis, try to set up your area on the dune side of the camp. Remember, this is a state park so all state laws are in effect. You must have registration, flag and helmets. Have fun, but be smart. You will get a DUI if you have too much fun and not enough smarts.

What do you and your ski need to ride?
You will need current registration, wetsuit, helmet, Coast Guard Approved life vest, lanyard kill switch and a tow loop. An electric bilge is highly recommended.

Lastly, this is not an official event. Ride at your own risk

Pretty standard today, a few assholes buy property next to the dunes knowing full well there will be traffic and dust but then sue the State because they want it to stop so they and their guests can have the beach to themselves. So the State eventually does the studies and rolls over instead of doing the right thing and telling them to F-Off, it has been here for 50 years so get over it.

I was just announced by the California Coastal Commission that "for now" the dunes can stay open for OHV recreation but that the State Parks needs to make changes next year.

So for now the October Freeride is a go!

We got a 1 year reprieve, so the battle is far from over. I recommend all stay close to open access organizations like Friends of Oceano Dunes, and provide them the assistance and support they need to continue to fight for the public's right to land and beach acess.
