Offshore and Endurance Racing Community Mourns Loss of Aaron Cress, March 29, 2020

 "The tragic and premature loss of Aaron Cress is being grieved not only by team, it is being felt by the entire offshore and endurance racing and riding community.  It’s a result of Aaron’s friendly and generous nature that made everyone he interacted with feel special. Aaron was a loyal friend, an avid supporter of our endeavor to revitalize offshore racing in the United States. Aaron had a huge impact, substantially more than people will ever know. I will be forever grateful for his friendship, collaboration and support. He was friendly, selfless, unassuming and had a giving soul. I will miss him dearly.”  Click the find out more below  for the photo gallery tribute to Aaron Cress

Who we are

PWCOFFSHORE is a group of global racers and riders (currently Uruguay and the United States), that have been been passionate offshore racers and riders for over twenty years.   Our PWCoffshore Team athletes have years of experience in endurance racing and offshore PWC riding. A few have also completed marathons and other crossover sports. We are not limited to a finite group of riders;  we solicit feedback from all offshore US National and International riders and consolidate their feedback on this site. Have you differentiated yourself in offshore or endurance riding? If so, then we want your tips, input and feedback! Collectively our knowledge and experience will continue to inspire others and invest in the future of offshore and endurance riding. Please join us on this adventure! Our original group of pioneering riders have challenged the Pacific Ocean waters year round in variable weather and water conditions. These collective experiences have made our group of aggressive offshore riders extremely effective endurance and offshore pilots. We have made hundreds of successful, fast and safe runs to Santa Catalina Island and back to the mainland due to our focused training and practices. Mark Gerner of PWCOFFSHORE has completed the Long Beach to Catalina run in excess of 1000 times. John Belton (now retired and in the hall of fame), 2000 round trips. Each transit is approximately 57 miles roundtrip into open Pacific waters in one of the most dangerous channel crossings in the world. Our team trains year round in Uruguay and the United States.  Our personal apparel is proven through grueling trials, we understand function and reliability better than any other type of riders. We are highly tuned into the unique characteristics of our Personal Watercraft hull configurations, pump set ups and horsepower capabilities, matched with WOT applications! (Wide Open Throttle). Our team has tuned their offshore race boats for intense conditions, and we run our boats in the harshest ocean waters. This approach to extreme PWC riding enables us to focus on successful outings and a strong competitive presence. The equipment we use is the fastest and most reliable PWC's and accessories currently on the market, we depend upon our gear. We operate in the harshest ocean conditions requiring a completely different approach to maintenance, racing and endurance riding & offshore racing. If our riding methodology and gear makes it in this environment, it will likely do well in standard riding conditions. Welcome to our site! We want to hear from you!
