Seven Deadly Questions With Erminio Iantosca
The Watercraft Journal: How did you first get interested in jet skis?
Erminio Iantosca: Years ago my dad bought a standup off of a friend. I was too young to ride it, so after a little while my dad sold it to his good friend Richard, who happened to be Chris MacClugage’s dad. I would always hangout with Chris, and as I got older I was able to ride and learn. Then I started to go to the races to watch Chris. Even at a young age, I fell in love with the sport and I knew that this was something I wanted to pursue…and it was all down hill from there (or up, depending on how you look at it).
WCJ: Was that the watercraft you first learned to ride on?
EI: When I was about 10, my dad bought me a 550 of my own and I was off. I took to the JetSki like a fish to water. Back then there wasn’t a Junior Class so I had to be 14 to race, which really stunk cause I had to wait 4 years. In the end I think it molded me into the rider that I am today and gave me that work ethic that I needed to be successful. So every Sunday my dad would take me to the lake from sun up to sun down for 4 years, and everyday I would tell my parents I wanted to race and my dad would always tell me when you’re ready I will let you know so I just practiced and practiced.
