Oceano Dunes SVRA has just closed all camping from Pole 4 to pole 6! Please donate to Friends of Oceano Dunes so they can keep fighting these closures! As part of the closure, there will likely be a reduction of total camping spots available, so be sure to make reservations now!

Grab your ski's, some spare spark plugs and a 10mm socket....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 on the beach.

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 most likely be Mile Marker 4 in the Oceano Dunes SVRA (http://www.ohv.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=1207). There have been some recent closures that may affect this. 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. The recent closures will likely reduce the number of passes available, so reserve early!

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.
