Stupid. No need to get that close! Absolutely no room for error. Would still be plenty 'cool' with more distance between the boats and they could get better photo shots as well.

This is one of the most ridiculous posts I have seen regarding a totally UNSAFE boating practice. Are you 19 or something, or just drunk posting?

Was it stupid or crazy? You bet! Here’s a few more words to add that would apply:
  • Illegal
  • Irresponsible
  • Dangerous
  • Negligent
  • Immature
  • Hazardous
  • Risky
  • Deadly
  • Childish
  • Careless
  • Foolish
  • Reckless
  • Senseless



You don't buy a high performance boat to go around and do this, just like you don't go and buy a Ferarri and see how close you can get to someone on the sidewalk while nearing redline RPMs.

This was not pre-planned. This was a deliberate idiot that got lucky this time and made himself feel good and gave those kids a thrill. The guy was probably drunk too. Who in their right mind would 110+ by a full boat or people with what looks like less than 8 feet away. What an A$$HOLE in the Nortech. Not a young A$$HOLE either.......(if this video is the same boat and driver).

I think the post was a smart one. Maybe it will make others think before making a move like this. Totally agree on the rest of your thread though.
Does anyone know who this guy is? What's the name of this boat? VERY CURIOUS!!!!

1 azz hole with nice boat. Keep him away from myself and my familly please! That kind of stunt is what kills people and will put an end to our sport. I don't think there was anything cool or sweet about that pass it was just plain wreckless and foolish.

Why? The Nortech guy is in his 50's (grey hair) and the kids are all jammed on a wake boat. The stunt was idiodic......even if they knew each other!!!!

Dude in the Nortech missed.....

You gotta score a crapload of points mowing down a bunch of teenagers like that. I haven't seen that movie in a while but all that was missing for a trifecta on that boat was a few Catholic Priests and some Ministers and that guy would of scored huge!!!.
