Default Typical Jet Ski driving, Ouch

This is about on par with what I run into here as for people on Jet-Skis and their capacity to drive.

On our Lake they are satisfied with cutting in front of us at any moment, these guys take it up one level...

Yeah, that hurt. It don't know if it was 30-40 feet though.

Done properly, that jump could be landed. Not sure of the water depth on the lower side though.

Caught a quick glimpse of that on the mid-day news. They only showed the first drop. At the end of the video you can see another 1 or 2 drops that probably account for the 30-40ft.
And the [email protected] disregarded the buoys that were there. I couldn't imagine trying to land a 10ft flat drop...ouch
