Jason Burns has joined Pro Watercross as managing director of Pro Watercross’ Hydroflight division.
Burns was a PWC freestyle competitor for more than 20 years and has been involved in the growth of the Hydroflight sport for the past five years, working with industry innovator Franky Zapata.
“Working with Franky is wonderful, and working with AJ [Handler] and Franky is like a dream come true,” Burns said. “These are two outstanding guys that are trying to make something special happen here with this 2017 tour, and I feel privileged to be a part of it all.”
Burns has already had a hand in the behind-the-scenes efforts needed to bring the Hydroflight tour into the Pro Watercross family, helping to refresh competition rules, scoring and procedures as well as working with sponsors, venues and athletes to prepare for the opening round for Hydroflight in Pensacola, Florida, on April 29-30.
