First ever "freestyle only" event in the USA took place in the always sunny Lake Havasu City, Arizona on Saturday April 16th, 2016.
US Freestyle Championship (USFC) is a new format of competition that separates freestyle from high speed racing on personal watercraft.
USFC has 4 classes, Freestyle Beginner Open, Freestyle 800, Freestyle 900 and Freestyle 1200.
All athletes perform a 2 minute routine and are judged by five different judges, each per one criteria: variety, difficulty, execution, flow and number of tricks.
17 riders from not only Arizona, California and Nevada but also Texas, Virginia, Connecticut and Alaska took part in West Coast Round of US Freestyle Championship.
