Moving to Australia for 3 months to work at the Jet Stunt Extreme Show 2013

With Jon Cooke and other riders at Jet Stunt Extreme 2012

 

Just a few days ago I received a call from Jon (Wire) Cooke who owns and operates the live PWC stunt show “Jet Stunt Extreme” at Sea World, Australia. A new performer there got injured and they are down a man in the peak of their summer season. I have accepted a 3 month contract to work there to help fill in for their downed rider. I leave Tuesday, January 29th and will be returning home around the beginning of May.  I have been spending the last 4 days since then confirming details of this job, and franticly preparing my extended absence at my current day job Pacific Motorsports. Interviewing and hiring someone to best replace my position there in my extended absence.

I Jet stunt Extreme Show area Sunset performed the Super jet role which I am going to be working as, during my visit last year. It is by far one of the most fun experiences I have ever had during a live show, as far as how much is involved with stand up jet skis. This job is really a dream job for any stand up jet ski enthusiast, and place of that job in beautiful surfers paradise Australia. Which has me nearly foaming out the mouth I’m that excited. As you could imagine, I have quite a bit to do before I depart over seas for 3 months in 2 days. Fortunately, this time away will give me a chance to finally be able to catch up with my website, to be able to bring you guys and my sponsors up to date with all of my recent events and adventures.

2013 Daytona Freeride Article

2013 Surf & Style Champion Mark Gomez

 

Last weekend I flew to Daytona Beach Florida for my 5th year attending the annual Daytona Beach Freeride. The event was hosted at a new hotel venue the Grand seas resort. With the support of Kommander Industries, I was able to get my Trinity Matrix freeride hull to the event this year.

I was able to ride some killer and expensive freestyle skis at the flat water friday event.

Saturday I competed in the Moto Option sponsored “Surf & Style” event. Which was a contest only judged on 3 minutes of a riders pure surfing ability. I ended up taking first place in that contest next to some other great surf riders!

There is so much that went on that weekend, if you would like to hear/ read all about it then check out my full feature article about my trip at watercraftperformance.com
