Freddy Krueger soared 286 feet smashing the world Ski Fly jump record at the U.S. Pro Water Ski & Wakeboard Tour presented by MasterCraft in Ft. Lauderdale. In the most anticipated event, Krueger broke the mark on the final jump of the day.
Coming into the weekend, Jaret Llewellyn of West Palm Beach held the previous record at 283 feet. Krueger also had the longest jump of the day Saturday at 279 feet, then defeated Bruce Neville in a Head to Head final on Sunday setting the World Record jump. “Rocketman”, Scot Ellis placed third with 260 feet.
“I'm so excited. I've had world record jumps before but this one means the most.” said Kreuger, “Especially to do it behind the new SportsStar 19. MasterCraft is my sponsor, they've made this boat specially for us and I wanted this for them”
The MasterCraft SportsStar towboat was equipped with an Indmar L-18 Vortec engine. MasterCraft invested over $100,000 in this new Indmar engine which is one of the most powerful truck engines GM has ever produced.
