When I raced, we used to back the enclosed race trailers right into the (fresh) water and drive into them. (Especially when the water patrol showed up during practice sessions and the skis were not legal.) Also had a friend that carried his two stand-ups in the back of a Dodge Cargo Caravan because of his HOA; but he loaded 'em with a beach cart.

That video was awesome.

does anyone else think thats not as funny as it may seem
i would consider that even though the ski driver got out, it could have been way worse. Total drowning in a van coffin.

A. the rear doors are open, free to swim out
B. the van stopped in the water, probably stuck at the end of the ramp
C. If Darwin got this guy maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing!

That even made me laugh and with people like that I believe the proper phrase is "should not be allowed to spawn" not breed, after all they are in water!

There are many jet skiis being stolen every day. Just curious if that could be what was going on. Panel type van. I had a tractor stolen recently in an enclosed trailer. Once they left my office, no one could see my tractor.

Even though the van doors were open, as Jupiter noted, this guy is lucky he didn't drown.

It has to be luck ... because it absolutely can't be intelligence.

This is far and away the dumbest thing I have seen on a launch ramp. And that's saying something.

He's lucky he didn't get pinned between the ski and the roof of the van.

Overcoming natural selection is an anomaly, a blip in the evolutionary order of things. Sooner or later, all creatures this stupid perish.
