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!

Liquid Militia Team Riders At 2010 Blowsion Surf Slam

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

In September I traveled 15 hours the second year in a row for the 2010 Blowsion SurfSlam Motosurf Competition. This was my first year competing in the pro freeride class placing 5th in the end. My good friends and clothing sponsor, Liquid Militia made their way up and put together this video out of all the footage they got there from the event.

2010 Pismo Beach Spring Break Freeride & Rise of the Tide Premiere

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

Uh oh

Fighting through yet again some more motor set backs.  Yet with the help of my good friends and sponsors at Pacific Motorsports I had torn apart my motor due to a piston failure and had my motor rebuilt in 3 days with just enough time to pack and leave for the 2010 Pismo Beach Spring break Freeride. Along the way I picked up my friend and rider Stacey Wells from The airport who flew in from Texas. We both made the 5 hour drive up the California coast hwy meeting Kyla and Ryan of Liquid Militia along with one of the industries most infamous East coast photographer Ronny Mac that they picked up from the airport as well.  The rest of the weekend went off with messy but massive surf. It was great being able to tear it up with all my good friends including Zack Bright, Chris Rosner, Ross Champion, Kris Ingram of Kommander Industries, Tomski, Jon Hall, Jack Sutton, Stanton High, Pete Zernik, Cuong Son, Jared Ajlouny, EJ, Glen Glorioso, Jerry Brandon JFB, and many many more. Local photographer Vanessa McCarthy was super cool to share some of the photos she snapped during the weekend.  I was also stoked that my best friends from home were able to make it out and see what the freeride scene was all about! On Saturday night Liquid Militia hosted the Premier of the new DVD Rise of the Tide by Bryant Lambert of Hypnotic Films. overall it was an extremely fun event everyone had a great time and I look forward to the next freeride to be able to see and ride with all the great people and friends of the Freeride scene.

Until the next event,
