Hey everyone! Well I just got my first contest all wrapped up this last weekend in Grayland Washington. I competed in 4 classes of the Grayland Open Amateur Freeride and Moto-Surf racing contest. I podium finished in every single class I competed in.
1st Surf Riding
3rd Aerial Tricks
3rd overall AM Freeride
3rd Pro Moto-surf racing
There are videos of almost all the rounds listed below, watch on YouTube
I also got to do promotional radio interviews for the contest with Pro rider and hollywood stunt man Mark Gomez and event coordinator Dan Lindgren on The jet 105.7 radio.
A local newspaper run a photo of my jetski and Zack Brights jetski front page the sunday of the contest. photo attached
WetRacer magazine has summoned my pencil skills with writing the article for this contest that will be in the next issue of WetRacer magazine so I will try and send over that article when it comes out where a more story version of this weekend will be depicted.
Thank you everyone for making this all possible for me this year. My new freeride superjet is awesome. Thing absolutely rips, this was a great 1st event and way to kick off my tour so I appreciate the support!
