    1979 Where were you?

    I bought my first Jet Ski in 1979, a 440.
    My first sponsor was also MB Products
    This is a pic I took for an ad he took out in JETSKIER magazine. The original IJSBA publication back in the that time everyone was riding on thier knees...
    My first ride was at Golden Shores near the Queen Mary in Long Beach, shortly thereafter I was out the day a 9 year old boy was decapitated by trying to jump the wakes of a boat, only he didn't realize the boat was towing a water skier and hit the line, I think his brother was about 16 years old. It was a popular place to ride in those days, including Blythe, Snug Harbor, the races at the Dunes in Newport, San Pedro Cabrillo Beach and a few others.

    We used to ride out at the ponds near Palm Springs and down in the river in Oceanside, lots of places to ride, all shut down now...gone forever.
