The 2015 Daytona Freeride has come and gone. We want to give a shout out to one of our dealers Watercraft Superstore who was selling the heck out of our LM tee’s all weekend. And props to Nick for hosting this awesome event, and all our team riders who attended and conquered here is what they had to say about the event.
Daytona Freeride 2015- Jake Bright
Well Daytona Freeride 2015 is in the books and man what an epic trip! My trip started out with towing our Krash and Burn trailer full of skis and supplies for the trip from the west coast. We headed out of sunny California and drove 40 hours straight, only stopping for gas along the way, through snow storms and all until finally we made it to La Playa resort the host hotel of this years Thrust Innovations Daytona Freeride.

My new Krash Industries Predator which was custom built and painted by Blowsion debuted this at the freeride and Wow, this boat is literally outa this world! With Gold glitter paint, deep purples and oranges accented by custom decals with crazy cosmic like graphics all set off with bright neon green sections and highlights! It all came together for a truly one of a kind paint job that I am honored to have on my ski. I was totally blown away when I feasted my eyes on my new surf weapon for the first time! Of course Blowsion completely surpassed my expectation on this build, every nut and bolt has been meticulously assembled and I couldn’t be any more stoked! I took it straight out and started airing it out and had nothing but a bilge line come loose, amazing build quality.
Jake Bright’s New FRESH Blowsion Paint
On this Predator I’m running the new Blowsion handle pole, with their revolutionary over the pivot steering system which is a must have. I went with a bigger power plant and jet pump, now running a Dasa 1000cc and a 148mm Skat track magnum pump. And of course it has all the Cold fusion parts and accessories you have to have for a solid surf ski.
I had a blast in Daytona riding and sharing waves with friends from all over the US and even a bunch of international riders! This year there was 100 more skis registered to ride and the beach was PACKED!! So many good riders out there, people were flying off waves and slashing apart lips left and right! Such a fun time for everyone on the water! Looking forward to doing it again next year! Cheers

Every year this event gets bigger and better. I had such a great time seeing and hanging out with all my freeride family. We had good size surf all weekend, with Sunday being the best weather and cleanest surf. What a great start to the season. Stay tuned for big things to come this year.

Daytona Freeride 2015- Jeff Bolte
Here are some more pics from the 2015 Daytona Freeride. We had a smooth trip down thru the night on Saturday and were met with decent surf and some sunshine Sunday morning. It was time to get the Freeride Preride underway! We got our 1st surfride in of the year and it was fun!t was great to start the year seeing teammates and friends on the beach and at the new host hotel, the LaPlaya. The 10th fl bar was a great meeting place and the king of the beach aquamoto race and surf and style awards were held up there too. I was honored to be in charge of getting the LM team rider care packs to them and the raffle items to Nick, all the boys and I were stoked as well as the lucky raffle winners too! Sunday had the best weather, the surf was clean and the sun was shining brightly. A great end to another Daytona Freeride. Can’t wait to see my Freeride family again at WaveDaze in April!
