WaveDaze 2016 was another superfun Freeride event put on by the Wavejunkies and with Krash Industries holding the 2nd annual EastCoast Nationals. The attendees converge on Virginia Beach from all over the country and world to experience the good vibes and ride surf all weekend.

Mother Nature brought a mixed bag of sun, surf, low temps, wind, rain and even snow on Saturday during my ride in the comp. That didn’t stop us from getting out there and doing what we love to do! This year the raffle/giveaways/trophy presentation was held in the hotel conference room instead of poolside, but everyone was stoked to be warm after the day on the windy beach.

I was stoked to take home 1st place in the master class in the contest. My goal is help anyone I can, keep progressing, and have fun in the surf with all my fellow freerides who love his sport as much as I do. It’s not about winning or loosing it’s about having a good time and pumping up other riders to progress.

They all want it

The Liquid Militia gear was a crowd favorite among all the cool prizes flying around.  It was great to see the Freeride family and spend time with old friends and make new ones too! Can’t get enough of these good times!!

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.

Made it


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.

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

Daytona Freeride 2015- Brandon Lawlor

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!
