This is a long post, but worth the read!

Here at SoCal Jet Boats, we strive to bring an experience to this community.  Over the 12 years SoCal Jet Boats has grown from a small forum for a few guys who wanted a place to go where the common interest was Jet Boats... to now being recognized world wide, published in a few issues of SpeedBoat Magazine, designed over 15 shirts which have been shipped all over the world and have had our merchandize sold in retail stores as well as supporting multiple charities and programs!! We are very proud of our accomplishments, but couldnít have done it without all of you.

From the beginning, I have always stressed that the name is just that - a name. It doesnít matter where you are from or what you drive. SoCal Jet Boats is about hanging out and enjoying a commonality between people - performance boating, which includes V-Drives, Outdrives, Outboards, and Jets. Even if you do not have a boat youíre still welcomed!

With the social media always evolving, it makes it easier for all of us to keep in touch and stay up to date which family & friends near or far! When Facebook created ďgroupsĒ, as company we decided to try it out, even though we had concerns and did not want to take away from the forum. Brittney and I, with the help of our moderators, do our best to keep out the riff raff. We donít like drama or disrespect towards anyone. Some people think that the internet is a free-for-all and you can be rude, mean and obnoxious.  We are a group who like to get together, hang out at the river/lake and enjoy spending time with family and friends. 

It has come to our attention that a Facebook group has been formed out of spite.  We have not addressed this situation until now as we feel we should inform you all what is going on.  These individuals who created this group & are a part of said group are slandering and harassing SoCal Jet Boats, myself directly, my family, and our members. They have even gone as far as to put out a Ďrewardí for anyone who knocks me out and gets it on video. They have incited vandalism towards public and private property as well. They have tried to blackmail me, attacking and making threats to my family, friends, and members, and attempting to spread lies they have no proof of, because they are just that - lies. We have a zero tolerance for this behavior. This is not what SoCalJetBoats is about or what we believe in.  We have removed and blocked these individuals from the group as well as anyone who has joined in on the scandal by egging them on.

That being said, if you want to be associated with a group that wishes harm on people, their families, and slander individuals & businesses - please leave. Thats is not what we are about & the entire boating community\industry is watching , no one wants to associate with this behavior.

A lot of you have reached out to Brittney and I through all of this and we are very thankful and appreciative for that! We ask that no one engages or retaliates towards these individuals. Just leave their group and unfriend them. I know the majority of the people in that group  have been added unwillingly and unknowingly. Some of you have told me you have left only to be re-added back into that group unwillingly. If you unfriend them, they canít add you back in.  They just get kicks out of tormenting people. We are not the first for them. They have done this to other individuals and their families in the past. We do not support or condone any of their actions.

We thank everyone for their love, loyalty and support! We look forward to seeing you guys out on the river and sharing beers, having fun and making more awesome memories.
We have a lot of big things planned for upcoming events and a lot of ground to cover for Horsepower Fest!! We are extremely excited about the future and look forward to seeing  you all soon!

Seeing this post on FB tonight made me visit the forum. I realized I miss it. This website introduced me to some of the raddest and most knowledgeable people on the river! Keep up the good work!

Damn I guess not being on Facebook really leaves one in the dark, which I'm totally fine with.
I have always loved this site and the events and really appreciate all of Brad and Brittany hard work. Screw the rest of the world we got it made right here! Lol

I don't have FAGBOOK but my wife does. Nothing but drama on FAGBOOK and the socialist Libral media site owned by Marc Fuckerberg! Bring it back home old school Brad to the SoCal jet boat forum. I Know FAGBOOK was good for the growth of the site but now that everybody  knows about socaljetboats that's loyal will come here if not good riddance! Just my 2 cents.
Love you guys see you soon

Keep up the good work guys! My oldest always loves watching the movies you made since he was 2 years old! This site is great and wife even got me a new SoCal Jet Boats T-shirt for Fatherís Day. Not many jets up here in WI but still proud to represent a stand up boating group. Here is a pic of my boys ready to help me build my Tom Papp Stealth project and my oldest helping with some new pump braces!

Why not just get rid of the Facebook group altogether? Seems like it has brought nothing but grief. Can we vote on it? I liked the feeling of being part of something so small yet felt so big. SCJB.com is awesome!!!
