Ski Jet Riders from around the world are expected to compete for US$31,000 in prize money at the inaugural International Freeride Water Craft Association (IFWA)/ Bali Freeride Nations Cup to be held in the roaring surf along Bali's Seminyak Beach September 2-3, 2006.
Established in 1999 to foster and promote the then "new sport" of freeriding,
sanctions a yearly calendar of events in which top-form athletes perform "death defying" feats on supercharged jet skis. Man and machine crash through waves, do perilous jumps and perform mid-air summersaults for appreciative and awe-struck crowds lining nearby beaches.
Organized by PT Bali Proevents
the action is set for the beach opposite Bali's Double Six Club
with ESPN Star Sports TV
signed up to record the action for rebroadcast in a one-hour TV special.
The competition will feature two classes of competition: Pro Stand up Class (Ski) and Pro Sit Down. A team of international judges will be observing every move of the athletes, tallying scores, and enforcing the rules of the IFWA
- chief among which is staying alive.
The event is free of charge to the public, so mark your calendar for two exciting days of competition on the beach September 2-3, 2006 in Bali.
