I traveled to Lake Havasu city to meet up with my race family, KMG Racing. With a fresh new graphic wrap our Kommander Industries powered 1200 SXR was ready to rock and roll for my Amateur ski open motos. With a 7th place first moto finish followed by a hard driving 2nd moto with a 1st place finish put me in 3rd place over all in the world in my class! I also got on the line for Vintage 550 race class. I put up a strong fight to get the lead in the 1st moto when my brothers engine decided to stop working doing down the line for the 3rd lap which put an end to my vintage racing for the year. During the entire weekend I was in the WORX Racing Components booth representing the brand signing posters and selling my Gomer Bomb Floating sunglasses. I also supported young Brazilian rider David Prado by loading him my Matrix freeride ski to compete in Amateur freestyle. At the end of the weekend I got to enjoy Monday at body beach, riding all of the industries best built flat water skis. Especially one ski that set my sights for my 2014 choice of ski.. Thank you to all of my family, friends, and my Sponsors who have supported me all year. 2014 Sponsorship and plans TBA soon..

A week after my return from Grayland, I loaded up my Matrix and brother’s 550 and I drove down to the final local race of the season at Lake Perris, CA. This was an exciting event after burning up my brothers entire 550 exhaust system due to a clogged cooling restrictor jet, I was able to get it all back together with the help of a bunch of friends on site. A loose clamp popped off during the 1st 550 moto lap 2 while i was in 1st place. To maintain the lead I threw off the hood and finished the last 3 laps of the race to keep my lead and finish 1st! My Amatuer ski Open motos went a little more smooth motor wise thanks to KMG Racing finishing out 3rd overall. I also competed in freestyle and came out first! One of my busiest and most fun race days so far.
On my way up north to a stunt job in Calgary, Canada. I made a mission to drive up a little early to compete at the UWP/IJSBA national tour stop race in Sparks, NV. Thanks to Brian Edwards and the crew at Bullet Racing, I was able to race Amateur ski open on a full blown 1200 Bullet V2 Kawasaki SXR hull. I ended up racing myself in Vintage 550, and I also rode with Daniel Martin and Jace Forrest in Freestyle on my Matrix. An eventful weekend seeing lots of industry friends and leaving with top 3 position titles in all of my classes! Next stop, Canada!
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!
