That's kinda what I was thinking too and upon further inspection you can actually see the camera zoon in around the 8 second mark.

Who cares. Sweet looking cafe. Probably felt like a speed bump.

I dont think so that first wake coming off the boat is no more than 20ft and watch the spray come up and hit under the camera. That boat was 20ft away MAX folks

I love jumping wakes but would never come up that close to another boat just because of the chance of hooking it the wrong way. Lot of water out there to have to explain how I hit another boat.

This board is strange sometimes...there's plenty of threads on how a boater does something stupid to cause an accident or injuries and everybody here is ready to lynch the captain after lighting him on fire.

But if something questionable is done and nothing comes of it then the 'ol "what's the matter with you all, you've never done something stupid?" excuse comes out in force.

Lets say you you hit and nobody got hurt because of this idiocy. It probably wouldn't be fun to try and explain to insurance.

But I agree with Indy. Somebody got killed people would be all over it. Here you still have 90% saying this guy was a dumb ace but THAT 10% thats like what, what, who cares. morons if you ask me

Yep, all fun and games until someone gets an eye put out, or killed.....way too close.

Then it is still fun, just someone can't see very well.
