An Interview With
Whats your most memorable experience riding?
Mark:
installing my new LPW big bore motor with only 2 hours of sleep to get it done in time to make it to the event in Santa Barbra,
CA. I picked up a fellow traveling rider Stacey Wells on the way to the event around 11pm at night. She got us there alive the last hour of
the trip. I had to pull over and let her drive so I could sleep for the last hour. When we arrived It was about 12 30 am with a full moon,
clear skies, about 70 degrees and 1-2 foot surf. By this time people were just getting warmed up with a few man sodas and were stoked
so see we arrived. The private beach had no electricity so visibility around the beach was very clear with the full moon. I decided to break
in my new motor on my Superjet at 1am for my first ever midnight Motosurf. I was heavily out of shape and not used to my new power

My most memorable experience has to have been the beginning of my trip to Liquid Militias team weekend 2010. I had just finished
plant in my ski but still had an
unforgettable and gnarly surf ride from
1-3 am. Ronny Mac and Kyla of Liquid
Militia tied a Glow stick to my
Handlepole and my life jacket but it
wasnt quite visible in pictures.
I remember Ronny Mac laughing
saying he could only see a little green
dot zipping left and right in the water
then go up in the air in a corkscrew
fashion and come back down.
That was one of the coolest things
I have ever had the opportunity to do.
NAME: Mark Gomez
Age 21
WHERE are you from?
MARK: Fullerton, CA
WHEN did you first ride a ski?
Age 9 I rode my Dads
1986 Kawasaki JS 550.
WHAT do you ride?
Currently I ride a
Kommander Industries Powered 2004 Yamaha Superjet.
WHERE is your fav riding spot?
Oceanside, CA with the O-side crew
HOW long have you been riding?
12 years total 6 years avidly in the surf
WHAT is your favorite jet ski movie?
MARK:
MARK:
MARK:
MARK:
MARK: I was raised on the 1980s VHS movie Jet Dreams. At
the time it was a film that set a new standard in the world of stand up
jet skiing with some racing, killer freestyle, and the grass roots of
freeriding. Shot with some of the best riders all on Kawasaki 550s
now considered legends to me such as Scott Hollywood Watkins,
Chris The Flyin Fish Fischetti, Haulin Harry Goatcher, and last
but not least Larry The Ripper Rippenkroeger. I would pull out
my dads bench press in front of the TV and stand on it with
a broom stick for a handlepole and rip with them on TV. This
movie to this day is my all time favorite movie.
Wetracer Magazine Page 5
HOW DID YOU GET INTO COMPETING?
Mark: As I began to excel more and more with sponsorships and my riding abilities. Ross Champion was
always in not only my own but other young riders ears about going out to compete. It was never much of
a decision for me it just became something I subconsciously knew I needed to do. It seemed like the key
to progressing as a rider to have a major goal to strive to be the best rider out there. The competitive part
of Freeride can be a bit stressful but at the same time it really gives you the drive to push past personal
doubts and excel at something you really believe in.
WHO ARE YOUR SPONSORS?
Mark: All of my sponsors are not only companies who make great products and support me with their time,
products, and or energy. They are good friends of mine who are positive people full of integrity, have pride
in what it is they offer, are honest, and most of all sincerely believe in what I have to offer not only as a rider
but as a person. That is why I am proud to represent my friends and sponsors:
Liquid Militia--- Kommander Industries---Performance Fiberglass---Cold Fusion---WORX
LegDrag Watercraft---Pacific Motorsports---PacSeal HydraulicsAC RacingTuff StandsWatCon--
with Larry Rippenkroeger letting him know how it all went. Because of my new found Screen Actors Guild (SAG) eligibility, I was able to be put in contact with Clay Cullen who was
looking to cast some young high school looking jet skiers for the movie I Am Number Four. 4 weeks later I was picked up by a private town car and on a direct first-class flight to
Miami, FL. When I arrived I had my own Rental car which I drove with actor and stuntman Jon Braver to the filming location in Islamorada, Fl. The next day I met the crew of for our
scene including the main actors stunt double, Eric Malone. We were flown in a week early to practice
and coordinate riding for the movie crew who was wrapping up the last of the movie that was shot in
Pittsburg. Work was awful, I had to wake up in my own 2 bedroom beach view room at the Hampton Inn,
drive 2 miles down the friendly island of Islamorada to the private harbor we used to launch equipment.
Then the worst part was having to ride stand ups in 80 degree water with clear tropical skies and warm weather.
Dont get me wrong, It was perfect except for the fact there was no surf. Then it would have been absolutely
a perfect scenario. At the end of the first week, main actor Alex Pettyfer arrived with the films director
DJ Caruso, who directed successful films such as Eagle Eye and Disturbia. The first day of filming was an
exhausting 14 hour day of floating riding, a lot more floating then a little bit more riding. On the second day,
we had another 12 hour day filming the beach scene where we rode our skis onto the beach and then shot the
night time beach party scene where I got some face time flirting with a pretty lady next to the main actor in
front of a camp fire. On what was supposed to be the last day the studio had some trouble with the camera
attached to the helicopter that was supposed to film most of our jet ski scenes. That bad luck turned into
great luck for Eric and I for an extended weeks stay in paradise. With the extra time I made my way up that
weekend to visit my friends In West Palm Beach, FL. I had the opportunity to get personal freestyle lessons
from Eric Malone with his 880cc EME Q8 SKY. The best part about the trip which absolutely blew my mind
was when I decided to accept the invite from Hollywood Scott Watkins brother Mark to go snorkeling. When
I arrived at the house he was at I thought nothing of it until I looked behind me in the boat at his waterfront
house. Before I could say anything Mark Watkins caught onto my puzzled look, smiled while saying,
youre a Jet Dreams fan, right? I replied of course, but dont tell me is that..? He smiled and said,
yep, this is the Jet Dreams house. If you tie this into that being the movie I was raised on and most of all
how I got the commercial with Larry, words cannot explain how much that meant to me.
It brought such an incredible sense of awe and respect to where my life had taken me, standing at the house
where I never thought I would.
The next few days we wrapped up the helicopter shoot following behind Eric Malone in the water and
watching him almost back flip into the helicopter above. It was a great experience for the both of us
and hopefully has a positive effect for our sport. I cant thank Larry Rippenkroeger and Clay Cullen enough
for such an incredible experience. Non the less all of the people who support me and my travels!
RECENTLY YOU WERE IN A NEW FEATURE FILM CALLED "I AM 4"
TELL US ABOUT IT AND HOW YOU LANDED THE GIG.
Mark: Immediately after I finished the Adidas commercial in LA, I was on my way home on the phone
MARK
TELL ME ABOUT THE COMMERCIAL
YOU WERE IN AND WHAT IS ACTOR KEN JEONG LIKE.
Mark: Big thanks right off the bat to my childhood Idol, Larry Rippenkroeger for keeping me in mind
after almost getting picked to be the sock monkey in the last Super bowl Kia car commercial.
He put me in the sights of stunt cordinator Shawn Graham for the commercial job. The commercial
was a national Adidas commercial to promote the Chicago Bulls Derek Roses new shoe. I was called
in to be the Jet Ski and lady pyramid stunt double for the hilarious Asian actor from the movie
The Hangover, Ken Jeong. First I was put into my ridiculously cool golden tracksuit with a really
bad wig to look like the man himself. Waiting my turn to shoot, I hung out with some beautiful and
rather gifted chested women in gold bikinis before It was my turn to stand above a 2 foot platform in
front of a huge green screen.
I was standing as if I was balancing on top of some girls shoulders while screaming, Freaky Like
My Lady Pyramid! I had no idea or background as to why I was screaming sucha random phrase.
I couldnt have cared less because in my head I was screaming, Im getting paid! I was then taken
over to practice in the absolutely tiny swimming pool that would soon become the Caviar pool
I would ride in. My stunt vehicle was Clay Cullens stock gold painted reed motor Kawasaki 550sx.
I was put into a similar costume but the bathing suit version with the same ridiculous wig. All I could
do with stock steering in a 3 ft deep pool was ride fast while dragging a leg which was the only way I
was able to turn in such a small area. It was a super fun shoot over all however. I ended up seeing
Ken as he was walking by but only long enough to exchange a friendly hand gesture greeting
as he walked by on his way to another scene.
In The Movies! In The Movies!

lovely filming crew!

ACCOMPLISHMENTS SUCH AS EVENTS YOU COMPETED IN AND FINISHES:
In October of 2008 I received the Joe Kenny Rookie of the year Award in Pismo Beach, CA.
My first event was the 2009 Blowsion Surf Slam presented by WORX in Pacific City, Oregon.
It was there where I won my first title as the Amateur Freeride Champion.
In May 2010 I proceeded to hop on my friend Pete Zerniks limited Kawasaki 800 SXR and
Race at the APBA tour stop in Parker AZ. It was there that I placed 3rd Overall both rounds in
Novice Ski Limited Class. As well as borrowing my friends superjet and taking the round 2 first
place trophy for Flat water freestyle with an energetic fist pumping old school routine
that stole the show.
In September I returned to the compete at the 2010 Blowsion SurfSlam in Pacific City,
Oregon coming in 5th Place in Pro Freeride class that time.
In October I competed at the 2010 World Finals in Lake Havasu, Arizona in Amateur Freestyle
and got murdered placing 9th.
INJURIES RIDING?
Mark: So far I have been only have had one injury while riding.
However this injury has been a son of a bitch because it is a
recurring injury for me. In June 2009 I sprained my ankle landing a
Re entry in a bad ankle which set me back over a month and a half
with daily physical therapy. That injury was fine until it came back
during a bad landing while riding in Ventura, CA 2 weeks after I
won my first amateur title in Oregon. This injury then came back
and bit me hard during my last pro heat this year at Surf Slam
against pro rider Marc Sickerling. Right off the bat I went to do
a huge one handed point back barrel roll and came down hard on
that bad back foot and the ankle popped for the third time. They
say ankle sprains happen 3 times before it goes away and I hope
that is true because a sprained ankle in freeriding sucks!
WHERE DO YOU SEE THE FUTURE OF THE SPORT?
Mark: Coming from an optimistic freerider, I think its on its
way up. The sport of freeride has so much to offer. A surf contest
is always different with the conditions and individual talents of
the riders making due with those conditions. I think the riders and
companies involved in the freeride industry are good people all
looking to promote and excel the sport we love. If I didnt wake up
each morning and believe any differently I wouldnt be around.
I can expect everyone to think the same way but all I know is that
I was raised to chase and excel that in which I believe in.
WHAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH:
Mark: The sky is the limit but I aim to take on the IFWA Freeride World Title when the time is right and I have the support to travel overseas and do so. Between then I aim to create
myself to be The Tripple Threat I am in the process of putting together a team of sponsors that will help me in different aspects of riding. I aim to be competitive in Close coarse
racing, Flat water freestyle, and most importantly Freeriding. I will do my best to be at every event I can with the help of my good friends and sponsors. Speaking of such I hope to
attract larger corporate financial sponsors by being the most marketable and exposed rider out there. I also am looking to progress in a career of stunt work. By this time I may or
may not be working for the Waterworld live stunt show at Universal Studios Hollywood, CA.

WHO DO YOU LOOK UP TO AS FAR AS OTHER RIDERS?
Mark: Three riders that I am lucky to consider good friends, have truly inspired me. First off was Randy Laine also known as "The Mayor of Oceanside" Randy has always given me
the straight up feedback I needed to progress with my surf riding. Not only by talking to me but by practicing what he preached out in the water by riding. Mostly it was the history
I have learned and still am learning about the sport that builds my respect for what I do and what I represent. The other rider is my good friend John Howe who I almost consider
a father figure in freeride. John Howe is a local rider in Oceanside who has never traveled to compete, but he is in his upper 40's and still rides up to 2-4 times a week. He has always
been there to ride with me on many off days. He provides feedback to improve my riding as well as provide tons of local surf break knowledge. Most of all John gives me that
perspective of the true passion of freeride when you don't compete and just ride because you love the sport. Last but not least one of the most inspirational rider I ride with is
Ross Champion. Knowing just a little about Ross before he became
incredible successful with his travels and world titles really built my
respect for him. Ross has always led by example not only as a rider but
as a person with his humble personality, sheer drive to ride the best he can
for himself and sponsors while pushing the absolute limits. Without those
guys I would not be the person or the rider I am today, and I cannot thank
them enough
for that.

MARK
ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY ABOUT YOURSELF, THE SPORT?? ANYTHING..
Mark: I am really excited to be apart of such a great sport with so many enthusiast that all want
to see better days for the sport we love. When everyone comes together at an event it may not
always be perfect but none the less it keeps moving and people have a good time. I have had
some of the best times with my new friends in the freeride community, most of those friends
I am closer with than the friends I have at home. Maybe it is because of the connection we all
share with what we love to do but none the less I have no regrets sacrificing the security of
spending all of my time and money at school searching for a career path. Despite the financial
crunch of spending almost all of my money on Freeriding I am living, and because it is always
such a crunch to get the next event makes me appreciate it so much more. I know Jet skiing
isnt quite easy to make into a life career but seeing riders/ entrepreneurs such as Rick Roy,
Eric Malone, Chris Macclugage, and many other riders generate income through products or
services that keeps them involved with the sport. That business helps to support their travels
and progress for not only themselves but other riders trying to come up. As I step down from
my soapbox all I am trying to share is my vision for possibilities. Life is full of possibilities
and its all about keeping them alive and chasing that in what you believe in.
ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO TELL OTHER RIDERS GETTING INTO THE SPORT?
Mark: Take what you have and challenge yourself to ride the best you can with it. You do not need a large motor to do great things.
Instead of trying to do the biggest flat water backflip, focus on the small challenges that make a rider truly rounded. Pick up an
old freestyle movie or watch some youtube freestyle videos from back in the day. Try to emulate those old tricks. Dont belittle
those tricks because you may not see them anymore. You will be surprised how tough most of those tricks may be. What I am
trying to say is constantly Challenge yourself the best you can with what you have. When you have mastered those challenges and
absolutely need a new part or modification to advance then do so. By blowing all of your time and money out of the water on parts
and modifications before you are ready will do more damage then good. It is too often that I see riders with their skis out of the
water waiting to be able to afford a new part that keeps them out of the water instead of just fixing what they have and enjoying
riding and getting better with what you have. Just have as much fun as you can with what you have so you ultimately appreciate
your talent and abilities when it comes time to step up to the next machine to learn newer tricks.

LAST WORDS FOR THE ARTICLE:
Mark: I just want to take the time to thank absolutely everyone who supports my travels and
progress in this sport. From being the kid on a 550 with a dream of doing something big, to
being a competitive professional rider. I cant explain how much I appreciate when people
pull me aside at events and say how they have seen what I have been doing and explain some
way they were stoked and it helped them to do something. That is so rewarding because I still
feel to this day there are bigger people in this sport that make the difference. As proud as I am
to represent companies as a rider, I walk around events just as stoked to be there and see
everyone else there, like it was the first time I showed up to that event as the kid with a 550.
What I am ultimately trying to say is that it still surprises the hell out of me when people
know who I am at events and take the time to say introduce themselves. I really enjoy meeting
people and hearing what they want to do in the sport, and being able to give back some helpful
advice or feedback. It is super rewarding to be able to give something back to people who are
stoked about the sport. I want to thank all of you guys so much for your support in making
my personal dreams and goals come true. I only hope I can give back as much as everyone has
supported me with, if not more. Without readers like you out there riding and participating at
events none of us riders would have anything to look forward to. From the bottom of my heart
thank you so much everyone! Mark Gomez

The 2 Annual Peruvian Freeride Championships sanctioned by the IJSBA, took place at Bujama Playa, located
th
about 90 kilometers south of Lima, on January 29 . The weather and water conditions were near perfect, with
temperatures hovering in the mid 80's and a nice ground swell coming in from the west, providing the couple of
thousand onlookers with a great show. There were several sponsors in attendance beside Yamaha, the "Official
personal watercraft from the event, including Burn Energy Drink, Powerade, Hawiian Tropic, Schick, and my
personal favorite.Pilsen Beer! The event was very well coordinated and the presentation set up was First Class
with riders' quarters, a huge announcing tower, awards podium, courtside banners, sponsor tents, and DJ Money
was spinning all of the right tunes!
At the riders meeting, the President of the IFWA, Tchello Brandao, explained to the five eager participants how the
show was going to be run and what the judges were looking for from the competitors. Fifty percent of a
Freeriders score is based on surfing ability and the other fifty percent was based on their trick presentation.
From that the judges would give better scores to the riders that got the most amplitude, style, and degree of
difficulty while performing their individual freerides. Originally, the judges were going to take the top two from the
first qualifying round directly to the semi-final; however, after one of the IROC/Stock Yamaha's busted three motor
mounts, we changed the format to a moto style of scoring. Each rider had three six minute runs and their scores
were tallied with the rider with the most points winning the Overall Championship.
The first rider out on the water was Zack Bright, a trick master from California! Things would not go well for Zack in
the first round because the first time he went out because his boat was out of gas! Bright, in obvious dismay came
back for a refill, and went back out with a clouded mind and had an average run. Bruno Jacob, of Brazil, was the winner of round number one with Leandro Pateira, also of
Brazil, having a good first round, seeding him in second with two rounds to go. The second round was dominated by the young upstart Bright who had some huge
re-entries, and two Madonna flips (one-handed/one-footed), which brought the crowd to attention! Bright advanced into second after two rounds, knocking Leandro into
third and Jared Aljouney of the USA, and Mariano Riva of Argentina into fourth and fifth respectively. During the final round, the stage was set for a knock down drag out
feud between Jacob and Bright. Both riders had great runs, which led to the podium announcement that only a couple of tenths of a point separated the top two after the
jet spray had cleared! Chief Judge, Tchello, made the announcement
that the winner was Bruno Jacob, with Bright finishing in a solid
second and Leandro Pateira rounding out the podium! The festive
weekend was capped off by everyone in attendance at the big party
at Asia Blvd! Special thanks to the IJSBA
Managing Director - Scott Frazier,
Promoter - Anibal Aliaga, Race Director - Miguel Gonzales,
Judge - Pruden and our hosts Georgio, Ceasar, and Chistopher!
Great job on the event and can't wait to do it againJanuary 2012!

WELL IT TOOK 4 YEARS,
BUT WE FINALLY GOT IT
FIGURED OUT.
by Ross Champion
This was by far and away the best trip to Brazil I have ever had in my
four years of coming here, and that includes the previous two years
when I left with World Titles. That is not to say this year's Jet Waves
event was not a stressful one for me. It was, and I will get to that part,
but the rest of the trip was just incredible. Having my Argentinean friends
there is just amazing. I could not have asked for a better support system, and
being with those guys is like being with family. Maxi and Pauli from Jetmotion
built amazing boats for me and Pierre this year, and busted their asses all weekend
to make sure everything was as good as it could be for us. And to finish off the trip,
I spent a great last day and night with some truly wonderful people
who have become amazing friends over the years.
Oh yeah...and there was a pretty good
contest too! A couple of years ago,
a representative from Yamaha Japan came
to meet with Harry and some of the other guys
from the Jet Ski La Plata group in Argentina to find
out why there are more Super Jets sold in Argentina
than any other country in the world. The result of that trip
was a special "White Edition" Super Jet for Argentina
in 2009 (and Australia might have gotten it this year.)
Well, I got the great honor of having Maxi at Jetmotion
build me an absolutely amazing freeride boat for this
contest based around a brand new White Edition boat.
I am constantly blown away at the power he is able to
get out of a 701. And I am very impressed with
the small wave capability of this stock hull/limited
701 motor package finished off with lots of
Blowsion goodies. It really was pretty amazing.
I got to Florianopolis late on Thursday afternoon,
and was greeted by one of my favorite people in
the world -- Carlos Mora. After spending a
little time with Carlos and some of the guys at
Tchello's shop, Pro Nautica, we headed up the
BR-101 to Picarras and the rest of the crew
Friday morning I woke up and pulled open the
window shade on my hotel room to check the
surf and saw Maxi, Mariano Rivas, and a bunch
of the Argentinean guys down there hard at work
on three amazing looking skis! Aside from mine,
Maxi had also built a boat for the Argentinean
National Champion Mariano Rivas. He designed
and built a new slightly shorter hull based on a
super jet, but moved the motor forward
to maintain a good weight bias in the
boat. Then, laid it up with a carbon/-
kevlar weave, and the hull looks
amazing. I only rode the boat for a
little bit, but I was really amazed at the
way the boat handled. They did quite a
bit of testing to get the boat balanced
after shortening the hull, and it really
shows. I would rather ride that hull
than a stock hull any day. Maxi also
built a boat for Pierre again this year...
basically the same as last year's boat.

kevlar in certain areas) repli of an

Great looking boat as well.
Great looking boat as well.
This White Edition boat was set up almost identical to the American flag boat Maxi built me to ride
for our show in Villa Giselle earlier this year, except that boat was built using one of Jetmotion's
carbon/kevlar hulls. The whole steering system was about 4 inches farther forward with the steering
system he used...that just didn't work for me. So, an old school long UMI steering system/turn
plate/bar combo put me back to a workable position. The other issue was that I never really got
comfortable in the footholds, even though Maxi wound up putting like 6 more layers of turf in there by
the time all was said and done. If I had arrived a day or so earlier, we could have resolved everything
in plenty of time. As it was, we were fixing and testing until the end of the day on Saturday, and there
were still a few things I would have liked to improve handling wise. But we were basically out of
time. Pierre, as always, was super impressive right out of the gate. He did have one day on the boat by
the time I got there, but even still I have never seen anyone adapt so quickly to different equipment.
Where I need to take my time and figure out exactly what the boat is going to do before I'm
comfortable even getting the stupid thing upside down, Pierre is already at 95% and going for it.

Mariano Rivas, who has been riding the new hull for a couple of months now, looked really
comfortable as well. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mariano. He is, by far, the best
freerider in Argentina, a former Pro racer, and has been riding for 20 years! Alessander Lenzi
surprised me more than anyone else on Saturday. He has done a lot of development work on his hull
this past year, and has clearly spent a lot of time in the surf. His hull literally is the size of a surfboard,
but he is incredibly stable on it. He was doing tight turns right in the pocket and hitting sections harder
than anyone else. It was very clear to me, early on, that he was going to be the guy to beat from the
start. Xan Sampiao was the very first guy I saw do a double roll at the first US IFWA event in
Oceanside back in 2005, which was also my first event. We have been friends since that day, and it
was great to see him with his new sponsor VAZ helmets. He has had some really serious injuries the
past few years, and it is great to see him riding hard and really well. I think we will be seeing much
more of him in the very near future.

th
Max Barrero came in as the only guy with a realistic chance of keeping Pierre from his 4 World Title.
There were only three points between Max and Pierre. So basically, whoever finished in front of the
other would win the series championship. Romain Stampers has come to compete in Brazil so often
that he keeps a boat there, and although he did not make it, Max made sure it got it's yearly amount of
French abuse and fiberglass work. Calling this ski ugly would be a compliment...but with Macoco's
expert tuning skills, I'm sure they were getting everything they could out of that little 701. And Max
was riding very well as always.
Tiago Geintens is, in my opinion, the next guy coming up to take over the freeride scene. He is a very
versatile rider/racer/freerider, and he has great boat handling skills as a result. Tiago just looks
professional when he rides...but he had a problem. The problem was that he had no boat. So team
Argentina adopted Tiago, and I put him on my boat. But that didn't turn out exactly great for him.

Bruno Jacob is ever improving and also one of the young guys to keep a close eye on for the future for
sure. This event was probably a little difficult for him because he was on an unfamiliar boat, but you
would not know it by watching him. As I'm writing this, it strikes me that at this point in my life and
our sport that we are an incredibly close international community. Consider for a second that I came
from the US for an event in Brazil, with a French teammate, and our whole crew and boats were from
Argentina. That is pretty incredible. The past 4 years have given me an amazing education and
perspective on people and different cultures. The days leading up to the contest saw 10-14 foot surf at
some of the better breaks in the area. By Friday the top places were still 8-10 feet and the contest site
had some solid 6+ foot sets. I only rode for probably 5-10 minuets on Friday and figured it was going
to be more or less hopeless until I got the steering back a little farther.

Saturday morning surf was a little bumpy, much smaller than Friday, and it was a little rainy. Sets were
probably 2-3 feet at best early on. But we had new parts on the boat and it made all the difference in
the world. And, as if on cue, as soon as the contest began the tide started filling in, swell picked up and
th
the wind died. By the time the 1/8 finals rolled around we had some really fun and clean surf in
the 3ft+ range, and my heat was a blast! I got the chance to get pretty comfortable on the ski and even
push a little. Brazil is a special place At the riders meeting on Saturday morning there were some very
specific instructions given about the parties that night.

And rightly so, there
was a complicated schedule.
And rightly so, there
was a complicated schedule.
And rightly so, there was a complicated schedule. After the event was done for the day, the party started at 5 pm at the 6 Degrees Champagne VIP booth located on site, then at 9 pm the freestyl
e show under the lights with the ramp and ring of fire on the river by Lenzi's house, and finally to Bali High for the bikini contest. Yeah, that is pretty much the way things go in Brazil. I would
tell you guys it was all great and amazing, but I was asleep. I had to ride against Lenzi in the morning and I was going to need everything I had and a little luck if I was going to win. Sunday morning
I was pleasantly surprised to see a pretty solid swell and no wind in the morning. Down at the contest site, it was a solid and powerful 4 foot with 5 foot plus sets and no wind at all. This was
great for me because the only chance I was going to have was with some bigger surf. But you know with all the partying that went on the night before, I will give you guys one chance to guess if
the event started anywhere close to 9:30 like it was supposed to.
Lenzi and I have developed a pretty good friendship over they years, and there is certainly a lot of mutual respect between the two of us. It is no secret that bigger surf favors my riding style and
equipment, where smaller surf favors his. The way it was looking, we were both in pretty good shape to have a really solid heat. It was big and clean enough for me to do what I needed to do...but
not big enough where it would give me any real advantage. By the time the event got started at like 11:30, conditions had kind of deteriorated a bit, but the sun was shining and the beach and
stands were packed. The swell was dying and wind was picking up, but it was still very contestable by the time Max and Mariano went to the water. Those guys kicked it off with a great heat,
and I wish I could give you a play by play...but honestly I was way too stressed looking at where I was going to find the waves I needed in my heat. Max pulled it out in the end and kept his Title
hopes alive. Lenzi and I were second to the water. I gave absolutely everything I had, but was a little off my game, and made way too many mistakes. Things were just not flowing, and the one
advantage I have over him is my aerial variations, and I really did not show too many of those. I was pretty happy to get a decent set for a superflip as the heat wound down...but that is no longer
a move that will win heats by itself, nor would I have wanted to win with that ride. Oh, and I took out the nose of the nice White Edition SJ I was riding. I still learn every time I compete. I learn
how I can improve my training and my mental game. It is a funny situation for me when I try to push hard, either it goes really well, and snowballs in that direction or really poorly. This time I
went poorly. We had some highlights, but overall I would have given myself about a 50% on that one. With only "best trick" left, the pressure was pretty much off, and it was time to relax and
enjoy the rest of the event. So I went back to full on fan mode and just watched,
hung out with the boys, and took pictures.
Tiago and Bruno were up next, and after some deliberation Tiago decided to try and continue with my boat, even though there was a pretty good sized opening in the front of the poor thing up under
the bond line. Those guys ha a really good heat, and even though Tiago chose not to flip so as not to risk breaking the boat further, he still pulled off a pretty convincing with a nice
solid run and lots of roll variation.
Unbeknownst to me, Dani of DP Prodciones had Pierre do a little commentary on my run for his video. And they asked me to return the favor during Pierre's heat with Alexander Buneder. I was
having a ton of fun cracking on him until he started having a little trouble. Trouble is certainly relative, and he was having no problem with winning the heat, but he was not on. So I had to turn
a little more positive with the commentary until he got things back on track. We came back after lunch with the semi finals and a bit of a surprise. The first semi was Max and Lenzi. Max put in
a great performance, but he was clearly at a disadvantage where equipment was concerned. Especially when you consider that he normally rides high hp freestyle skis, even in the surf. Lenzi rode
great and was super clean. About half way through his heat he hit flipped of a wave a little too late, and basically rotated 1 totally by accident, but that got him thinking. A little later, he pulled
th
off a very nice and clean double roll, and that was pretty much all she wrote for Max. Max's loss secured Pierre's 4 World Freeride Title. And in typical fashion, there were 30 Argentineans singing
his praises in the pits!
The surprise was that although Tiago was in the semi finals, he was not going to compete. He chose not to ride the white boat, because he was uncomfortable with the idea that he might do m
damage to the nose, (initially he had cracked it in practice, and I just moved the job along a little farther.) so Pierre officially got a pass to the final, and Max was given the final spot on the podium.
Now on to best trick...Conditions were not good. But there was a very incon-
sistent set that would find it's way to the beach once in a while. The rules were
really great for this part of the event. Since surf was so inconsistent, your two
minutes would only start once you did your first jump. You could do as man
as you wanted in your two minutes, but only one would be counted. Max put
on a great show, and capped it off with a nice barrel-roll-re-entry that had him
landing almost on the beach, and then getting washed up as his time ran out.
Mariano Rivas got literally the biggest wave of the competition to start his
time, and I'm pretty sure he was trying to put the ski in to orbit! Just a massive
perfect clean flip, must have been the biggest of the event, and with the high
tide pushing waves up basically on the beach, it was less that 75 feet away from
some of the crowd who then went nuts. I went in the water with the boat set up
for no footed variations...and was just freaking out as I saw probably the
second biggest set of the day coming in as the guys were bringing my boat to
the water. We wound up being probably 30 seconds too late to the water. So I
proceeded to ride up and down the beach for what felt like 5 years (probably
more like 5 minutes) waiting for anything that looked like a set. Finally, I
found a little dribbler that came through and did a quick and dirty super flip to
start my time. Fortunately, I had a better set right before my time was up and
could pull off a quick Indy flip, which I won with. The final with Pierre and
Lenzi was starting to look a lot like last year with crappy conditions, except there
was a little bump that would push through every once in a while in the 2-3 foot
range and sometimes bigger. They both opened really solidly. Pierre was clearly
having a little trouble finding the waves he wanted for good flip variations, but
nonetheless, he spent most of the first few minutes upside down while Lenzi
surfed. Then, as sets started rolling in, Lenzi took it to the air in a big way with
some huge rolls with great variations. Then, he uncorks a double back flip off
about a 4 foot set, and sent himself a solid 20 feet in the air. Pierre saw it from
the back, and said he was just shy of landing it. Another three feet higher, he
would have done it. Crashing didn't seem to faze him though, and the next
move was a super clean double roll, followed up with two barrel-roll-re-entries
on basically back-to-back waves. Pierre tried to answer, and set his ski up for
some no footed flip variations, but the ocean did not cooperate, and the last two
minutes of the heat were basically flat. That was pretty much it. We got some
amazing trophies made by a very famous Florianopolis artist. Lenzi won the
th
event, followed by Pierre, Max and Tiago. Pierre took home his 4 World Title
followed, closely by Max and Tiago in the overall points for the year. There were
lots of shenanigans with the Argentinians that night before they had to leave for
the airport at 1am. The next day, I headed back to Floriano with some friends,
and had an amazing dinner and night with Carlos, his wife Vera, and some people
who, I am confident, will be friends for the rest of my life. I've said this before,
but I will say it again. If you have not been to an IFWA event, you owe it to
yourself to make it. If you ride, come compete. If you don't, come watch. This
is a great group, and I am very fortunate to be a part of it.
Congrats to Pierre, Lenzi, Max, and Tiago. And thanks to everyone who works
so hard to make these events so amazing.

CIWA Round # 2 OFFICIAL STANDINGS
The second round of the Cayman Island Watercraft Associations National Tour was held on May 15th at South Sound in Georgetown. The weather was near perfect and the racer
attendance was the largest to date with over 30 racers from the Island. The CIWA venue was set very nice with shaded bleachers, Team Pit Tents, CIWA Raffle and drink sales,
fresh local fish food vending, snow cones, and DJ Dom-U-Nique spinning everyones favorite island music. With everything set up for success, it was time to go racing!
The first race of the day was the very fast Amateur Runabout Class, which boasted nine racers on the starting line. In the first of three motos, Derrick Phillips grabbed the holeshot,
but after a mishap, Darin Mclean from the Tryin-A-Ting Team took the lead and never looked back as he came in front of Andrew Ebanks and his cousin, Nathan McLean. Nathan,
however, would come back in the second and third motos and take the top spot, which earned him the Overall for the weekend, just ahead Darin and Andrew who filled the podium!
The Beginner Race was the largest race of the weekend and it was evident that these Beginners had been attending their team practice sessions! Tonys Toys racer, Jordan
McLaughlin, picked up where he left off in the first round by holeshotting and going wire to wire with wins in the first two motos and even after a disappointing third moto, he still
claimed the win for this round. A couple of surprises in the Beginner Class, one was Kyle Brooks, who finished second in the first moto in only his second event ever and the other
was the VJ Ramgeet, from the Good To Go Team rode very consistent and won the final moto, giving him second place points for the weekend. Paul Rouseau Jr. finished up in
third overall showcasing his closed course skills.
The Novice Class was handled by VJ Ramgeet, who in my opinion was the most improved racer from the last round. His 3-1-1 finish landed him atop the podium in front of Jordan
McLaughlin and Mark Rae-Smith, who finished second and third respectively. It was a tough weekend for Javier Medina and Jared Bush, who were frontrunners in this class;
however they were plagued with mechanical difficulties.
Finally, the Expert ClassRoshod Goff, winner of the first round, came back to take the checkered in the first moto, but had an exhaust issue in the second moto, which gave him
a seventh place finish, leaving the door open for someone else to take the win in this heavily coveted class! That someone just happened to be, Whiteboy Jon Crossen, which
recently won the Thunder Run Race held here in the Cayman Islands. Crossen had a 3-1-1 finish, which gave him and the One to One Team the top spot and Roshod settled for
second. Nathan McLean found his self third at the end of the day after the jet spray had cleared. These top three riders are within twelve points with two more rounds to go, scheduled
for July 3rd and July 24th. The event was sponsored by the Sports Minister of Youth Sports & Culture, Cayman Airways, The Comfort Suites on Seven Mile Beach, AI
Rentals, Reliable Industries, Mr. Renee Hislop, Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital, Cayman Fire Services, Cayman Marine Police, Smoothie King, and Tortuga
Distributing/Monster Energy! We hope to see you at the next event! Mike Young/Race Director

It was with heavy hearts that the Jettribe family received
the news that Kawasaki is no longer making stand-ups.
Kawasaki first started making stand-ups in 1973 when they
came out with the WSAA Jet Ski 400 and the WSAB Jet Ski
400. The 440 was introduced in

1978 and the 550 came
along four years later in 1982. In the mid-1970s the birth of
closed course racing came about with the help of Doug
Silverstein, Steve Stricklin, Brian Bendix, and Larry
Rippenkroeger. Most racers rode modified 440s and 550s.
Throughout the next few decades Kawasaki produced the
650, the 750, and last of all the SX-R 800.


We at Jettribe are a core group of stand up riders and the 550 SX

stand up was
how it started for us. We all even still ride our 750 SX

now. Tony raced in region 1
in Southern California with his 1993 750 stand up and there were about 50 riders
per class. The stand up was the seed that started Jettribe and has changed so

many aspects of our lives.


We will forever miss the stand up.

Many world champs have won titles on our previous hulls racing and freestyle. Lloyd Burlew, Rick Roy, Alexander Lenzi and Jeff Jacobs are just a few names to list.
There are many advantages owning our light weight freeride hull over a OEM hull. First off our hull is much stronger, built with the highest quality resins and
composites available today. All of our hulls are hand built in house by trained professionals that have been working with us for over 20 years.
Each part is thoroughly inspected after construction, and hand cut and
shaped. Using the highest grade composites we are able to build
incredibly light weight hulls compared to stock, up to twenty seven
pounds lighter.
We custom tailor our watercraft to suite the riders needs.
We customize ideal dimensions for riders of all classes. All hulls come
with footholds of your choice, Rickter or Cyclone and Wamiltons scupper
valve installed. Wamiltons Customs is the only PWC aftermarket hull
company that legally produces a hull I.D vin number and title for proper
registration. Our Freeride hull is based off a Yamaha engine platform and
is meant to last. This is the last hull you will ever have to buy, freestyle or
free ride.
