Urban Jet Ski Mayhem in the Suburbs of Fullerton California!

What do you do when it’s pouring rain and flooding the streets of your neighborhood?
If you’re two time world MotoSurf champ Mark Gomez, you unload your jet ski and take it for a cruise! When recent flooding hit the Fullerton area, Gomez wheeled his badass stand-up ski out to the curb and dropped it into the stream that had formed along the side of the residential street in front of his house. With a cameraman riding alongside down the flooded street, Gomez is able to go about as far as he wants thanks to the depth of the floodwaters. For quite a ways, Mark carefully modulates the throttle, keeping enough speed to maintain his balance but keeping things under control due to the narrow width of his makeshift body of water.
He eventually drags the bottom of the ski on the asphalt, bringing his run to a stop, thought it looks like he could continue on if he wants, or turn around and ride back toward home. Either way, there’s plenty of fun left to be had, riding one’s jet ski through the neighborhood.
On this stormy Sunday this little 550 screamed up this little 8 inch Yale street gutter river like an angry race gas burning salmon up stream!!After years of my brother Philip Gomez and I waiting for the rainy day stars to align. That was for us both being home and it to be raining just hard enough to get our street gutters to flood enough so I could try to ride up our street in Fullerton, CA. We tried it before but couldn't get it going..today with the help of the neighborhood I pulled it off! First attempt was filmed from the bottom of the hill, I made it all the way up my street, turned right and had to stop because of a parked car blocking my river! This second attempt got almost as far until I clipped the curb which sent me into the shallow spot toward a soft abrupt stop, but thankfully my chin cushioned the blow haha. Such a rad home experience. #bucketlist #liverideescape #Jetski #Fullerton #kawasaki550 @mystiklubes @worxracing @Hydroturf @dasaracing @tcfreeride @liquidmilitia @jetpilotcompany @bombereyewear @skattrak @jet.renu @700pirate #ESUArmor @salty_investments #factoryzero #hotproducts #coldfusion #kmgracing #performancefiberglass
