First Superflip and Variations Pulled off in Oceanside Video & Photos

Friday, April 4th, 2014

mgindianairThanks 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.mgcanflip
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!

Mark Gomez riding Lucas Vasconcelos 1000cc Superfreak Freestyle JetSki

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

For my trip to Daytona Beach this year I had an extended trip to go up and down the Florida coast to visit all of the east coast watercraft companies and riders. Lucas Vasconcelos drove down to West Palm Beach, FL to pick me up and take me to up to Orlando where he and a bunch of other riders live. He took me to a local lake just 3 minutes from his house where he let me take his 1000cc 55lb Superfreak hull out for a spin. This was my first time really riding a ski with this much power and holy crap was it fun! Thanks Lucas!
