Nov 212017

The inaugural Monster Energy Freeride Series was held this past weekend at Playa El Palmar in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. Thirty of the best Jetski Freeride athletes gathered to showcase their best flips and flairs for the first time in Mexican waters.

The IFWA (International FreeRide WaterCraft Association) sanctioned the three-day international competition and it was joined by multiple days of Mexican fiestas. Local Jet ski Freeride hero, Abraham Hochstrasser, was crowned Monster Energy Freeride Series Champ and showed the world why he ranks among the top three global Jet Ski Freeriders.

"I am very happy with the turnout, the organization of the event was excellent and the government supported us 100%, the sport’s cream of crop came to Mexico,” commented Abraham “The IFWA trusted in the competition, government and sponsors - so much that they have confirmed that Mexico will be one of the stops for the 2018 World Tour – I’m happy to have won at home.”


On Sunday afternoon, Hochstrasser went off and took advantage of the growing waves in the Grand Final by elevating to almost 7 meters and showcasing kick-ass aerial tricks. Hochstrasser rallied to beat current world champion Mark Gomez.
