What a jerk off... We wonder why more bodies of water are going to speed limits and our insurance continues to skyrocket? Its idiots like this that make the rest of us look bad.

Does anyone recognize the boat? I would bet he is a member here. The kids in the ski boat have no clue how dangerous that was.

Fully Agreed, I am a very forgiving person, but hat was just waaay too close.

Just a thought, what if they had a rope in the water?????

I'm kinda guessing the people in the Nortech know the people in the boat they were hauling ass by. I'm not saying it makes it OK, it was not a smart move for either crew.
Cool looking, but the coulda killed someone factor kinda overshadows the coolness.

When the worst happens, and it's easy to do at such a close range, those who are hell bent on legislating our sport to death will have won another victory.

Both.

If the floating boat had a camera crew that had agreed to do this, and the nor tech driver knew the camera boat wasnt going to move anywhere - then its merely crazy.

As it plays out here its both.

No big deal. I would be fine in either boat.
