No observer and no life vest. The suit may float but in what position. It looks like fun but even if an observer is not the law it should be and there should be someone watching. It looks like a riot, just want it to be as safe as it looks fun.

We all wore life vests, including the pics above when riding. The person flying above is wearing a neoprene Type-III rated ski/wakeboard vest.

With the proper conditions (i.e. a PWC not cutting in front of you), its possible to follow a turn with the boat, and steer the Ray in the air from one side of the boat to the other.
