HYDROFLIGHT COMPETITIVE RESULTS
2014 FLYBOARD NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP – Top 8
2013 FLYBOARD WORLD CUP – 6th
Coming into the 2013 Flyboard World Cup Aaron Gould had everyone’s attention. When you post a video on Facebook of you flying smoothly out of a double back flip without touching the water you get peoples attention. At the time of this World Championship H2RO had only seen Aaron and Flyboard inventor Franky Zapata successfully land a double back flip and so Flyboard’s biggest trick of 2013 was very new and proved to be very elusive.
There may have been a bit of extra pressure that came along with being ‘Mr. Double’ and during the Flyboard World Cup Aaron Gould flew great but felt it wasn’t his best. He had to settle for a six place finish. Even without landing a clean double I think Aaron might have moved up a few more places had he included some of the flip/dive, reverse dolphin and spin/flip combinations that the top five relied on.
