Want to see something crazy? For the dare-devil, thrill-seeking types and the curios, head down to Embarcadero Marina Park by Seaport Village in downtown San Diego to see snowmobile ace Levi Lavallee and FMX legend Robbie Maddison as they attempt to set new long-distance records for jumping over a water gap. The big jump is set to happen at 8:00 p.m. New Year’s Eve. Since this is a fairly early event; there will still be time to take in another New Year’s festivity too!
