Informal Jet Ski freeride planned for this weekend prompts outcry from some
A conflict between personal watercraft (PWC) users, commonly called Jet Skis, and other beachgoers including surfers heated up this week when the disagreement was aired in front of county supervisors on Tuesday and a day later nearly half of those who planned to attend a PWC gathering this weekend canceled their trips.
