Nineteen-year-old Felipe de Jesus Amezcua of San Leandro, crashed his motorcycle around 4:18 p.m., according to a state parks spokesperson. By 4:50 p.m., responders stopped performing CPR.
The accident is under investigation, but officials say it is unrelated a truck jumping competition that packed the dunes the day before. Pismo Beach Huckfest drew 2,000 cars to the beach on Saturday.
At least two deaths occurred on the Oceano Dunes in 2011, one of which also resulted from a solo motorcycle accident.
