2017 Blowsion Surf Slam is upon us and so is Jake Bright

Jake Bright will be competing in Pro Freeride this year at the 2017 Blowsion Surf Slam after missing a few years prior. He’s ready to send it.

It’s that time of year again and I’ll be making my way up to Pacific city Oregon for the Blowsion Surf Slam one of the most anticipated international jetski freeride contest of the year. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been able to participate due to injuries and other reasons so I’m pretty pumped up about it! I’ll be competing in the Pro freeride contest as well as the Hydro-turf Big Air Showdown! It’s been a little bit since I’ve had the chance to compete in a IFWA contests and I am excited to get out there and shake it up, I’m looking forward to giving the boys on tour a run for their money.

Now if we rewind to Daytona Beach Florida back in January and the big air showdown where It came down to Tommy Scaccianoce (2015 Surf slam big air champ) and I for the top spot and he ended up edging me out after photo review! Tom is insane and was going massive that whole weekend so he deserved it but for real after just missing the win I’m deff gunning for that big air win! I’m just gonna send it!



Anyway I plan on going out there and giving it my all, and have a blast! I’m really loving my Krash Industries predator and when I ride it I really feel like i’m one with it, and I believe that shows in my riding, I’m landing all my tricks super smooth and a lot of the tricks are starting to feel like second nature! I’ve also been spending more time working on my surf riding lately so hopefully we have some good waves and I can try and tuck into some barrels and drag shoulder across some faces!

 I’ve done a lot of growing and maturing  personally in the last few years and I believe that shows in my riding as well. If I could describe it I would say i’m more calculated which translates to a smoother more consistent flow in my riding. I’ve gotten better at reading waves and knowing how to attack the next set of them, I kind of look at a set of waves like a rhythm section and I’m trying to keep a good flow going though it!. So I’m doing my best to utilize every set to its full potential and make the most of each wave in the set. This is so crucial in a 5 min heat because you may only get one set of waves in the whole round.
Qualifying is Friday then its head to head battles all and Sunday with awards on the beach immediately after the riding is over. If your in the area or if you’ve got the opportunity to make it out this weekend come out and support an awesome event and a bunch of rad freeriders! Hope to see you all on the beach!
Cheers, Jake

Cali to Virginia Beach for WaveDaze 2017 | Jake Bright

Wavedaze 2017 is in the books! This year was a lot of fun and it was so good to see so many familiar faces and make some new friends as well. This year brought people from around the country, even a few from other countries like Canada and Australia and for the first time in a few years I was representing for the whole west coast!

To kick my trip if I caught a red-eye from San Diego on Thursday night and showed up to the Norfolk airport Friday morning where I got picked up by my buddy Landon and rolled on the beach shortly after!

Friday had the best waves I saw for the weekend so after I sticker-ed up the Salty Investments ski with decals I got from LM Printshop I jumped right in and rode! Then we wrapped up on the beach and I went back to the hotel where I bunked up with Chris Grace and his pops the legend Joe Grace!

Da place to be

I had a great time on the water goofing around launching straight airs and dicing it up with the NY boys Tommy Scaccianoce, James Juvet and my mates from OZ Mick Anthony and Keaton Watts! Friday Krash Industries also made a big announcement!

Jake Bright, fresh decals ready to rip!


The spot to be Peabody’s

Each night we went out our dinners and parties were hosted at the newly renovated Peabodies nightclub and we had a shuttle service from the hotel to the club which is always a good time!

Saturday we had some better weather than the day before but the surf went flat on us and the contest was called off but that didn’t stop everyone from getting out on the water and having a good time anyway! After we all got off the water we kicked off the raffle which is hands down one of the best in the business, just to mention a few of the items for raffle were Liquid Militia clothing, Jet Renu cleaning products, Hydroturf gifts, Dasa intake manifold, etc and they even raffled of a brand new blue billet handle pole from KAVINCI! Saturday night was the grand reopening of Peabodies after the renovations so they had a live band come into play and the entire club was open which I thought was pretty rad and a huge improvement for them.

Sunday the weather was real nice and sunny and warm but still not much for waves so a big boat was paid to come through and throw a wake which was big enough for riders to launch off of! That night we had a nice meal at this Italian joint we go to every year and then everyone hung out at the hotel and mingled for the rest of the night! it was a bummer that Shawnski couldn’t make it out!

The crew | Just about to part ways.

Monday I slept in and then woke up and got breakfast with the boys! After that I said my goodbyes to everyone still leftover and then helped Dan the event organizer get all his stuff packed up and packed out. After that Dan and I met up with our buddy Landon and we headed to the shooting range where I got to look at and even shoot numerous different guns that are totally illegal back in Cali!

The best part was when I shot the gnarliest handgun I’ve ever shot the Desert Eagle 50 caliber handgun for the first time and it kicked like a horse!! After that Dan hooked me up with a ride to the airport and I began my journey back to SoCal!


Does this gun make me look like a bad ass?

Jake and Dan | Till next time!

I just want to send a special thanks to Krash Industries for getting me to the event and making sure I had a ski to ride! Salty investments for letting me barrow your ski! Jerimiah Donges for hauling the ski to and from the event! The Graces for always treating me like family and letting me stay with them! Dan, Jen and Landon for making sure I’m taken care of every time I come out! And to all my east coast friends and everyone who came out for the event and helped make it a good time for me and everyone involved! I feel super lucky to be part of such a rad sport and a part of the freeride fam who is always looking out for one another whether you know each other or not!

Hope to see you on the beach at the next one, cheers!
