From the outside looking in, you would think that every Australian who loves riding personal watercraft in the surf is a professional freerider. More footage of amazing aerial action keep pouring out of the land Down Under than even America’s famed Oceanside, California.
One talented athlete, Luke Rotolone, has been publishing his aquatic acrobatics on his YouTube channel, showing off his skills behind the throttle of him lime green DASA-powered Trinity-hulled freeride ski or his equally hued WaveBlaster.
Personally, we get a kick out of seeing freeriders grabbing sick air with the slightly larger, slightly heavier ‘Blasters – if only just to prove the “I’d rather sit than quit” guys wrong. But changing people’s minds is never one single logical argument away.
We learned that Luke had fractured his pelvis rather badly recently and is recuperating rather well despite the presence of some new screws and plates holding him together.
