Has anyone ever been to pismo? Are paddles really necessary? I ask because my buddies and I have set up a trip out there and some of my buddies are refusing to buy paddles. Well they be alright or should I force them to get them?

yes you should force them into buying them.....the softest sand is near the beach right above the wet stuff......or just watch and laugh as they struggle constantally with getting stuck

I think I will just watch and laugh. Thats what they get for not buying what they need. Oh I am heading up there the 28th and the 29th if any one wants to meet up over there.

I ride there about 3 times a month. Just air down to 2 psi. So much better with paddles. Take it slow until you get to know the area. :rockon:

Tell your friends this:

All of the dunes drop off going away for the Ocean. That means be very careful when heading out from the Ocean into the dunes. Its all dropoffs.... Its alot of fun coming back in though ans its endless jumps...

Paddles are highly recomended... its their weekend.. Do they really want to enjoy it? They will be kicking themselves if they dont have paddles the second they are in the sand...

No, you don't need paddles, heck 3/4 of the quads out there are running aired-down stock tires. I've been riding there for years and never needed paddles.

Is Pismo the place to be this weekend? I saw a caravan of 10+ trucks w/ toy haulers headed north on the 101 on Thursday evening(in the L.A. area). A couple of them also had quads in the beds of their trucks, neither were raptors, but the guy at the front of the caravan did have huge Yamaha decals all over his toy hauler.

yeah it was packed this weekend but dam I had a great time first time being out there and might I say well worth the trip. I think camping on the beach was the best part and being able to ride on the beach was just as good. Oh and all the dam hot chicks that were there dam I think I love Pismo.
