AquaX is the fastest growing personal watercraft championship in the world. Its rapid growth is owed to a simple, yet challenging race format that appeals to todays personal watercraft users.
This year the program will include the unveiling of a professional level race series and expansion of two further championships in the Great Lakes region of the USA and in Southeast Asia.

The AquaX World Rankings, launched in 2014 to identify the most consistent and talented AquaX riders in the world, continues to add another element to competition as racers battle it out for that coveted number one vest each year.
With over 250 riders now having made an appearance in the AquaX World Rankings, it has certainly become one of the series biggest talking points with the top 50 revealed every four months via the AquaX website and social media platforms.
The rankings are calculated using two years’ worth of results, with results from the last 12 months taking more precedence than those recorded between 12 and 24 months, to ensure those in form and still racing with the series are rightly the focus of the rankings.
World Championship level events score double points. For more info on how the WR are calculated see the AquaX rulebook AquaX Rulebook
There are several factors that impact on your ranking points. These are as follows:
There’s plenty to talk about in 20 -11 category.
Pro racer Alexandra Barret leaps 20 places to number 15 in the rankings after a dominant performance in the AquaX EuroTour and we would expect to see him break into the Top 10 at the next reshuffle if he continues on current form. Likewise, USA racer Dennis Mack is starting to realise that strong results on the USA Pro Tour pay dividends as he moves up 17 places to number 14. Indonesian racer, Aero Aswar continues to improve moving 9 places to number 12.
Amateur racer, Greg Radulski is the biggest mover – moving up 40 position as he breaks into the Top 50 rankings for the first time. But it’s Canada’s Dave Davidson who holds the highest ranked amateur racer in 13th place.
The only female in the field Britain’s Sophie Francis slips one position to number 19, whereas Anthony Radetic remains static in 20.
The 30 to 21 category sees the Amateur riders rise through the ranks, although the amateur points don’t hold as much weigh as the Pro points the strong line ups help to increase their overall value.
The biggest points climber in this category is amateur racer Justin Taylor climbing 10 points to 26th place, helped by a solid start to his 2019 campaign. Yaniel Fiallo, USA Champion in the amateur 300 class, also rises 4 points to 24th place and Jason Lester 2 points moving him into 22nd place.
The amateur EuroTour and reigning UK Champion Carl Lofthouse moves up one category to 27th position, although this year Lofthouse will be focussing his attention on the Pro category.
The biggest fallers in this category by dropping 16 points to number 26 is Nicolas Rius.
Aqsa Aswar makes a return to the AquaX World Ranking’s Top 50 coming straight in at number 33 after a strong performance on the USA Pro Tour, which saw the young Indonesian racer finish third overall in the season opener in Daytona.
Frenchman and AquaX EuroTour racer Olivier Audemar #36 climbs 28 positions and is the highest climber in this category with Brit Dean Harrison climbing 10 places after a superb victory in St Cloud at the second round of the USA Amateur series.
The outstanding newcomer to the top 41 -50 category is Christopher Landis who has risen an amazing 24 places since Dec 2018 and now sits in 44th place. Landis took the first win of the season in the AM300 USA Championships in Daytona Beach and looks set to be a top contender for this year's title. Sitting just in front of Landis in 43rd place is Eric Diaz, another rising star in the AM300 class. Diaz won the AM200 class back in 2017 and is hoping to add 300 title to his growing list of accolades.
