Anybody can do that with an outboard powered ski boat. Just put a 2X4 under the motor, trim it back and hit the throttles.

I'd hate to see what happens when one (or both) motors die in the middle of one of those. I doubt you could out-run the wake running up the stern. "Hey dude, watch this! Roar, cough, blub, blub."

And to think somebody thought the guy in the Cig with years of experience jumping a wake was dumb.

The first thing I would do is make sure I had a life vest on with the kill switch/cord tethered to me. That way if you fell out the motors would be cut.
