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!

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Thanks to the boys of QFWA. I was able to slide over in the morning before work to participate in the 2013 QFWA Freeride event just across the street from Sea World at the Spit. Bigger thanks to my mate Luke Rotolone who let me smash on his Matrix and Joe Handford who let me rail his superjet. I had a lot of fun throwing down with the OZ freeriders. Thanks again to everyone at the QFWA  including club organizer Dan Moloney for letting me have a go out there!

Argentina bound in February 2012

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

I am excited to announce that I will be traveling to Villa Gesell, Argentina February 1st-8th with fellow pro freerider and friend Zack Bright! We have been invited by our friends Pablo Wolf and  Daniel Harry Puddu. Pablo is an outstanding freerider, racer, and also head organizer for most events in Argentina, who is able to arrange such outstanding sponsorship to allow them to invite international riders like Zack and I over every year. The last 2 years they have brought riders such as Ross Champion, Pierre Maixent, Jerry Jones, and Mike Serlin, this is a huge honor to be invited. Harry Puddu is the creator of Jetskilaplata.com.ar and is a travel agent who has coordinated and arranged all of our flights and accommodations. Harry interviewed me for Jet ski la Plata online which was my first online international interview back in 2009 (click here to see the interview).I recently had the opportunity to meet Harry in person when he came  to Oceanside to ride with us last summer.

Zack and I will be Pro Invited Freeriders apart of Argentina’s biggest motosurf race and freeride event of the year, February 4th-5th. Zack will be bringing his girlfriend Kristen, and I will be bringing my girlfriend Bianca who’s entire family is from Argentina. Bianca will be huge support for me breaking through the language barrier I currently have until I become fluent in Spanish. The people of Argentina are going over the top keeping us at a 5 star hotel with all accommodations paid for. My friends Rodry Duran of Rad Jetski, Mai Adams, Leonardo Gomez, and Luis Hernan Corti have all been working hard over the last few months to prepare an awesome Freeride Superjet for me to ride at the event. The sheer generosity and excitement through freeride in Argentina absolutely blows my mind, and I’m not even there yet! It is safe to say I am over the top excited to take off on the 1st of February to see and ride with my new found friends in Argentina. I will briefly update my experience on my website but this entire trip will be covered in an article I will write for the February/March issue of Pro Rider Magazine.
