Not many people gets a chance to feel what it’s like to be on fire in a controlled environment. After several attempts to do a stunt on fire that was worthy of a video, we only had enough fire retardant gel for more one stunt. Luckily Daniel managed to pull this off on the first attempt. It’s probably the most intense thing we have ever done and now it’s time to start searching for the next challenge.
Thanks to everyone who helped out with any aspect of our fire stunts. We are especially thankful to Gabe and all his friends who are featured in the BTS video here:

Special thanks to Ryan Thomas for being awesome and helping JoyRidersTV work through the edits in some of the footage!
The JoyRiders crew decided to do it all in one day. That’s right, surfing at the beach in San Diego, snowboarding in the mountains at Big Bear Mountain and riding dune buggies in the desert at Superstition Mountain. And if that wasn’t enough they finished it off with some skateboarding at night back in San Diego. The whole day was documented so they could share their story of one of the most amazing days of their lives.
While we are getting food at the drive through, a “giant gorilla” comes out from the woods, grabs the food and trashes it, which scares the employees and even the manager. Luckily the employees and manager at Taco Bell are super awesome and replaced the order for us. After convincing the manager that two tacos of the tacos were still good we got 5 tacos for the price of 3. It was a good day.
This is what you get when you have 14 dudes and $500 worth of fireworks.
Fireworks used: roman candles, mortars, saturn missiles, barrage fire candle
The JoyRiders Fireworks Battle is meant to be a game of dodgeball with roman candles. After the motor explodes the battle begins with both teams, red and blue, scrambling towards the center to to grab their fireworks and then rushing back to their sides to light the fireworks. There are two tiki torches on each team’s side which are used to light the fireworks and also mark the out of bounds areas. After 8 mins of intense explosions, tons of smoke and lots of loud noises, it was hard to say who won. The red team had less burns and blue team had more burns. Blue team says they won because they were counting points by the number of burns they had on their skin. Let us know who you think won!
We tested out the new GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition at 120fps to create some slow motion surf footage and we were amazed by the new camera. There is no twixtor used here; all the footage was slowed down to 20% in Premiere Pro CS6 creating a 24fps look and feel.
This was mostly shot in San Diego, some footage is from Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz.
The Halloween Surf Jam was hosted October 27th at Crystal Pier, San Diego.payday loans It turned out riding in costume was a lot harder than we thought but nevertheless we had an awesome time! Thanks to everyone who attended!
