LM- What’s happening in Peru?
SH-Peruvian Freeride Expo! This is the third competition of its type with riders invited from Europe, Brazil, and the United States.
LM- How is your Spanish?
SH- Uhhh, I’m going to have to download the translation app!
LM- What are you going to be doing there?
SH- I’m riding and promoting Freeride Jetskiing in a Country where it’s a very obscure sport. I’m told the Peruvians know how to have a good time too!
LM- Have you ever traveled outside the US to do anything related to your sport?
SH- yes, I’ve lived in china working as a stunt Jetski actor at a theme park. that was awesome and could definetly see myself doing that again
LM- What kind of ride will be you be on?
SH- A stock 2010 Yamaha Superjet. It’s nice because that is similar to the setup I am used to. Just drop a couple footstraps in!
LM- How long will you be there?
SH- From March 7th to the 11th. I’m missing the Pismo spring break, but I may make it back in time to meet any stragglers on Monday.
LM- Will you be checking out any other sites?
SH- Yeah, as much as I can, being a tourist is half the fun! I’m excited to see Lima and the other great Peruvian cities.
LM- Travel Buddies?
SH- Jack Sutton from Skiclinic will be going to ride too. Jack is a super cool guy and best I could imagine outside of Team LM.
LM- What do you expect to gain from this trip? if anything?
SH- I expect to gain a trip to Peru to ride! Haha really not interested in gaining anything, Im just stoked to go ride!
