[HOT SEAT: Aqsa Sutan Aswar @aqsaaswar ]
Aqsa Sutan Aswar is one of Indonesian jet ski athletes who managed to make Indonesia famous in various world jet ski championships. His love for jet ski was passed on from his father, Saiful Sutan Aswar, who also known as a jet ski instructor. “My father used to bring my brother and I to an island every week and we rode a jet ski. At first, it was just a hobby and, eventually, it became serious,” Aqsa says. Aqsa had his first ride when he was only 5 years old and started to race since he was 6 years old.
Surely, all the triumphs wouldn't be achieved without hard work. Aqsa goes to the gym on a daily basis and practices jet ski on weekends but when he prepares for a competition, he intensifies his training. For instance, when he trained for Asian Games 2018. “My brother and I had 6-month training in Arizona, United States, and it was really tight. We went to gym three times a day and practised jet ski three times a week,” Aqsa explains. Though riding jet ski might seems fun, in reality it is actually harder than it looks. “Practising jet ski is quite tough, it's not always easy and fun. People only know the happy part, which is when we win, but they don't really know the struggle behind it,” he adds.
