Press Release: Results – West Coast Round of 2016 IJSBA U.S. Freestyle Championship / April 16th / Lake Havasu City, Arizona
First ever “freestyle only” event in the USA took place in the always sunny Lake Havasu City, Arizona on Saturday April 16th, 2016.
US Freestyle Championship (USFC) is a new format of competition that separates freestyle from high speed racing on personal watercraft.
USFC has 4 classes, Freestyle Beginner Open, Freestyle 800, Freestyle 900 and Freestyle 1200.
All athletes perform a 2 minute routine and are judged by five different judges, each per one criteria: variety, difficulty, execution, flow and number of tricks.
17 riders from not only Arizona, California and Nevada but also Texas, Virginia, Connecticut and Alaska took part in West Coast Round of US Freestyle Championship.
Mark Gomez Pro Freerider Update
By: Mark Gomez
This month has been a busy, back to back weekend turnaround of events. I traveled to the WaveDaze event in Virginia Beach, and the 1st round of the US Freestyle Championship in Lake Havasu, Arizona.
Wavedaze: April 9th-11th Virginia Beach, VA – Freeride Event
Preparations for this event have been a little more stressful than usual. My new 2016 Rickter EDGE was built brand new at the recent Pismo spring break freeride just a few weeks prior to this event, but I had some setbacks with faulty parts that kept me off of my new ski that weekend. With it all fixed a week later, what better way to break it in then riding at WaveDaze on the other side of the country before it goes to Europe?! Event Promoter and good friends Dan Swartz and Landon Ward were absolute legends, really making the effort to take care of myself and Abraham Ho who also shipped his ski and traveled with me. Our skis were received, unpacked and delivered to the event site safely. My girlfriend Kaley McNay flew in from Portland as well to support me since the only time we have to see each other lately is on weekends at events. To say the least, I’m really lucky to have her support to travel like that with me.
