at the 1.00 mark you can see it heading over but trips a drive and saves it he does it even worse when the wind get under it at 1.25 that was hairline close you can also see the tachs just bouncing off the limiters sure explanes the damaged props

You could hear the driver say at the end that they lost a prop.

I agree with Typhoon in Post#4.

I don't mind seeing a big Skater fly through the air but at the 1:06 mark in the video, the right sponson wave stab was not a good moment. His driving, attitude of the boat/trim of the drives, in this video does not inspire confidence for anyone to want to ride with him as a passenger and or his overall helmsmanship competency.

Seems to be a "look at me moment" for the accompanying videographer who filmed this drive in the ocean. My $0.02 opinion

Looks like a good time to me. Living life full throttle isn't for everyone...

Is the owner the driver or throttle man? I just noticed close to the end the tachometers.
