Thanks to my friends Zack Bright Ross Champion and Brock Taylor for the coaching and Chris Rosner for letting me borrow his superflip bars I was able to go out to my surf stomping grounds outside of Oceanside harbor and make it happen.
The concept of the superflip is extremely gnarly. Go for a backflip, kick your feet out as you leave the lip, when fully extended upside down in the air leverage yourself back into the tray using the superflip bars on your wrist to attempt to safely land the trick. There was not much of a way to ease into it other than to simply commit to the trick and go for it.
It for sure helps to know that my 2014 Freeride jet ski I am riding is beyond capable of this and many other gnarly tricks.
I am riding a Rickter FR2 EVO-1 Hull with DASA 1000cc Engine pushed by a Skat-Trak 155 pump assembled by Impros. All put together by TC Freeride. The Superflip Levers I am using are Ross Champion/Cold Fusion superflip bars which are no longer available.
This video and everything I do though out the year is made possible thanks to WORX Racing Components and Hydro-Turf.
Thanks for supporting me!
Riding as part of the Champion Freeride Team: Introducing Champion Timepieces by Cold Fusion & Ross ChampionMonday, February 10th, 2014
3 x world IFWA champion, professional freerider, and my good friend Ross Champion has teamed up with Carl Gramberg of Cold Fusion to create an exciting new business venture called “Champion Timepieces.”
From Ross’s Introductory blog on Championtimepieces.com:
Carl Gramberg and I (Ross Champion) are extremely happy to finally be able to announce Champion Timepieces. Champion Timepieces is a watch company with a vision for building a brand strongly rooted in jet ski culture that will be shared with the world.
We have been working hard the past 13 months on developing the company’s first entry in to the world of watch making the “ Fusion.” We are very proud to be able to announce this venture, along with the Fusion at this year’s Daytona Freeride.
If you are reading this, chances are our first model was made specifically for you. We created the Fusion to be an authentic representation of the culture that so much of our lives revolve around. To do that we use many of the same materials and manufacturing techniques in building the Fusion that have made our world of high performance watercraft what it is today.
My role as part of the Champion Freeride Team
Ross has hand picked 10 Pro Freeriders to represent the brand and lifestyle of Champion Timepieces. I am honored to be considered one of those 10 riders next to other iconic Freeriders and good friends such as Randy Laine, Marc Sickerling, Mike Serlin, Zack Bright, Jake Bright, Darin Andersen, Jake Montadon, Pete McAfee, as well as Ross and Carl themselves. Not only is it an incredible honor to ride apart of a team with such caliber of riders but Ross has been a massive influence on my progress and success over the last few years, I am excited to help Ross make this dream of his grow like he has done for mine.

From Champion Timepieces site:
The Champion Freeride Team is getting together earlier in the month along with Fullgaz’s Ludo Mouveau and Pro Rider’s Ronny Mac for a production that will take us deep in to Mexico in search of perfect empty surf in the most remote Baja back country. In this project sponsored by Blowsion, Champion Timepieces, Cold-Fusion and Burn Industries, we will capture what freeride is about in its most pure form, and all that goes into planning and pulling off a trip off of this magnitude with 9 of the world’s best riders and 3 incredible media guys.
