UAE jet ski star claims top five place
Riding the ocean
Over 40 nations competed for the King's Cup World Grand Prix in Thailand - a high profile annual jet ski competition. Khalid Salem Al Qubaisi, representing the UAE, made the nation proud finishing in the top 5. Khalid, 33, works at IPIC by day - and transforms to jet ski star by night and on weekends. Khalid reports, " I had to try new things - from making higher jumps to putting in more reverse high turns. It worked out well and secured me that top five finish and a nice trophy. The aim in 2014 is to go even better and win some of the bigger competitions around the world."
