You can't really tell how bad they deviate from the path until the chopper pulls away and you see the change in the path of the wake.

It did look like a pretty clean run until that happened....is there anything that you can do to avoid that...do you think if he had dragged his tabs just a little more that it wouldn't have gotten so out of whack? We might as well try to learn something from this....

That Definately left a mark...

After they were done... he probably told the driver...

" That was great.... But my whole upper body is NUMB"

All the posts so far are all about the poor passenger, not one worrying about the boat? I zoomed in on the footage and I think I saw marks on the top of the windshield molding. Whos going to fix it? If he had been watching the water along with the driver he would have known oh crap hold on and get low the glove box is typically padded and makes for a much better landing pad for the face. I've abused my spouse a number of times in similar senarios and have to honestly say neither of us have marred the boat or ourselfs, knock on wood.
