You would think a 38' Fountian would be able to handle a Boat wake on a lake for crap sake. Got to blame the Captian on this one.

you back off the throttles when the boat comes out of the water to keep from breaking shit when the props hook back up.

I concur. I think he got 3 solid face smashes with 2 other guys helping to smash. The captain did do a pretty good dive in front of the blonde though.

That was piss poor boat handling. Landing throttle off and staying off no doubt contributed to the end result.

I've never been to that lake but have heard from many powerboaters that lake regularly gets crossing slop from multiple 40-50ft cruisers causing huge wakes. The captain was working the throttles when the props clear as he should but I could tell he was in trouble after he hit the first one. He must have crossed the first wave wrong, twisting the boat mid-air and "hooking" the boat into an immediate 90 degree turn. As stated, he could have done a better job!!!!

I saw it on eBaum's world and at the 30 second mark (and after that lady is talking)

it's shown slo-mo. http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/82761369/

and has some great music dubbed in.

I love it.
