This Saturday, 20 June 2009 we lost a dear friend and a jet ski pioneer in Greece.
Our dear friend Vasilis aged 50 was killed in a jetski crash.
His 260 chashed with a GTX IS in big surf conditions.
Nobody can explain how it happened ,both riders have over 1000hours on PWC's.Vasilis has won numerous national titles and was always there to assist everyone.
The other guy has only minor injuries and was very close friend to him.
We will attend the funeral today.
Safety first guys.

Dear God what a terrible piece of News. I too am sorry for him and all his family. I am also 50 with a 260. My next ride I will think of Vasilis; it will be a good one for him I promise.

No it wasnt Vasilis that does some articles for PWI.
Very important for all of us is that he died while "testing" a 260 Vs a GTX IS in big surf.
He ended up with a broken neck after landing with head on his ski.
Lets all take a lesson from his death...
