I have caught it a few times on the dish. That is some real crazy ****!

I don't think my mind works that fast to follow those hand signals and go the right direction.

So one make a wrong turn and end up in the stands one day.

It is wild!

Jet Sprint boat racing is very popular in Australia & New Zealand.
The boats are a blast to drive. So much so I bought an old race boat for kicks. I put a new 500hp donk in it.
This hull design is too old to race competitively , so we play around & pull ski biscuits behind it.
It's a blast! Yea they turn on a dime, and guess what happens to your ski biscuit friends!
I highly recommend them - 100% fun factor, but for relatively flat water only.
If you ever get a chance to go for a ride - take it !
Here's some pictures before my rebuild and after...
Ford sticker now gone - boat used to have 351 cleveland now it has modified GM Gen III.

The drivers / navigators are only given the new course before each race. Helps to have a good memory. That rules me out.

I remember looking at an article in H20 Full Throttle (another former magazine) a couple years ago about this - and yes, it does seem pretty nuts. But then again, those Aussies and Kiwis are a nuts a good way, of course!
