When it comes to racing personal water craft, Dustin Farthing is like Godzilla, crushing records and championships all over the world like the giant lizard crushes metropolitan Japanese cityscapes. Dustin and his Vortech Supercharged Kawasaki jet skis are a force to be reckoned with whenever and wherever they compete. Starting out racing on land, Dustin’s father bought him his first motocross bike when he was only two years old in hopes of spending some quality time with his son. However, what had originally started as a father and son pastime quickly turned into Dustin’s passion. By the time he entered his first local race at the age 4 he was hooked. Dustin Farthing was racing motorcycles all over the united states through the age of 14. At the age of 14 his father purchased him a Kawasaki jet ski and at that point his career was born. Since that time, Dustin has won 12 world titles & 6 national titles.
In addition to his professional racing career, Dustin also owns Deadly Sins Clothing, and is also set to make an appearance on the new reality series featuring Rob Van Winkle, aka rapper Vanilla Ice, entitled “The Vanilla Ice Project”, set to air on the DIY network. The show, where Van Winkle and a crew of contractors renovate a 6 bedroom, 7,000 square foot Palm Beach mansion. During the 30 minute episode, it will show Farthing and Ice riding Farthing’s race skis in different locations and doing stunts.
