John Belton, Redondo Beach, California.  PWCOFFSHORE Club Member since 2007 

Primary Craft:  2014 Kawasaki ULTRA 310X     John is a seasoned veteran of offshore riding and offshore racing.  Belton is the most experienced rider selected to be assocoated PWCOFFSHORE.  John has been riding personal watercraft for 30 years.  Most of that riding has been in the ocean off the coast of Los Angeles, California.  Nick named "The Master" by his peers, John has earned the respect of those peers from hundreds of rides and countless hours spent on the ocean.  Simply put, John is a tremendous wealth of information for offshore riding and racing related topics.  Very few people know the Long Beach to Catalina channel as well as John.  As much as John likes to ride hard and aggressively, safety has always been a paramount concern for both himself and his friends on the water.  John also enjoys casual summer riding in the general Colorado River Valley area.

Kevin Shaw

Kevin Shaw has been a powersports and automotive journalist for over a decade, whose love for things that go too fast led him to launching The Watercraft Journal, the PWC industry’s most-read magazine reaching nearly 100,000 readers in its first year of publication. Almost always found with stained hands and dirt under his fingernails, Kevin has an eye for the technical while keeping a eye out for beautiful photography and a great story. Although, the first to admit he’s no polished competitor, Kevin has been known to throw his hat into the ring and step up to the starting line. His short stint in racing has earned him a handful of podium finishes,
