Erminio Iantosca

Since the age of 4, Erminio Iantosca hasn’t been able to get enough of the water. He doesn’t just live the Sea-Doo Life, he sleeps, eats and breathes it!

The 38-year-old Naples, Fla., native spends every minute he can on the water with family and friends or making waves on various watercraft racing circuits. 

 “My love affair with watercraft started with my dad. He brought one home when I was 4 and I’ve been hooked since that very first day,” Iantosca said.

“I try to ride almost every weekend between racing, practicing and joy rides, I’m on the water all year round,” he said.

Away from the water, he lends a hand running the family restaurant business with his mom, Josephine, sister, Kristina, and brother, Joseph. If you do happen to catch a rare instance of Erminio on dry land, he might also be chilling with Harper, his Blue Nose Pitbull.

Favorite place to ride? Lake Havasu City, Ariz., is so beautiful! Crystal clear fresh water, great weather and the lake is so big there are so many cool places to explore.

Dream place to ride? Thailand would be a dream to ride my Sea-Doo watercraft. I plan on making that dream a reality this December with a trip to explore and ride in that beautiful country!

Describe your perfect day on the water: My perfect day on the water starts with loading up the Sea-Doos, my girlfriend and the dog. We usually fill up my LinQ cooler with tons of snacks, cruise down to our local island where everyone parks for the day enjoying sun, food, music and just truly embracing the Sea-Doo life.

Describe your life away from the water: My life off the water is pretty routine-oriented. I hit the gym first thing in the morning to stay in shape. Then it’s off to the family restaurant where I work until 5. After that I head home to normally do something Sea-Doo related in my garage. Then dinner and bed.

What’s your one must-have accessory for your Sea-Doo? For me, it’s the stereo now on my RXT-X. I don’t know how I rode all those years without music. It’s a game changer!

What’s one innovation you’d like to see on a Sea-Doo that doesn’t currently exist? I’d like to see some drains in the footwells. It would make cleaning easier.

Favorite place to eat? 

First artist you add to your play list? I listen to country a lot when I’m riding. It just gives me that nice relaxing feeling and helps me take in all my surroundings on the water. I’m a Chris Stapleton fan!

Celebrity or person you’d most like to ride with? I think it would be fun to ride with Vin Diesel because he looks like me (LOL). Maybe The Rock – he looks like a character!
