Jeff “Ox” Kargola Paddle Out

Photos by Chris Kinman

To everyone in the motocross community, Jeff “Ox” Kargola was a freestyle and off-road rider. Truth be told, though, he also had a huge passion for surfing, and even paddled out and surfed the famed Waimea Bay in Hawaii with his good friend Sunny Garcia. Rather than move inland where the majority of FMX riders lived, Jeff chose to remain by the beach and spent his off time between riding trips surfing the waves in his hometown of San Clemente. In honor of him, family and friends got together yesterday at the San Clemente pier for a memorial paddle out. The turn out was amazing… Ride In Peace, Ox. You will be greatly missed.
