2017 Long Beach to Catalina & Back IJSBA Offshore National Championship
My experience as a first time offshore racer!
First off, this race is awesome! It was a great experience just as I thought it would be. I had a great time and am so greatful to Jon Rall, Aaron Cress, and Kawasaki USA for providing a fully equipped Kawasaki 310R for me to race which is the only reason I was able to compete in this contest. Aaron had the ski completely dialed in and it ran flawlessly for the entire race. I can’t thank him enough for all the work he did setting up the ski for me ahead of time.
According to other racers, the ocean conditions were pretty brutal compared to some previous years. I have some bumps and bruises on my body and also on Aaron’s bulletproof gps mount from my helmet to prove it! I sometimes felt like a flag flapping in the wind just hanging on to the bars as tight as I could as I was being bucked up and down on the seat and sometimes lifting completely out of the footwells from some of the bigger high speed jumps and landings. I had a few close calls where I was nearly thrown off of the ski as I pushed the limits for the conditions.

Story & Photos: MotoSurf World Cup
Motivated and ready to fight, current MotoSurf WorldCup leader Sebastian Kubinec was determined to extend his Championship lead at the third stop at Wyboston Lakes.
Despite Kubinec won the first final race making a very clever and super fast ride, it was Jakub Kornfeil who took the overall victory with second and first spots from the finals in a very tight battle. Improving the joker buoy tactics, Kornfeil managed to win the second final shootout. However, JetSurf Slovakia’s Kubinec reached his goal and increased points leading in the series. Petr Vencovský from Jetsurf USA squad repeated the podium from last race in Florida. [..]
