Loved the pickup truck at the end, no one got hurt, except his own truck.

Geez, who thought it would be a good idea to let a 13 year old with two days experience run around on a Jetski?

I think people lose about 75 IQ points when they get on a jetski.

Yeah that's about right. I'll buy one every once in a while if the price is right just to flip after a few weeks. They are a lot more fun in the ocean

I love jet skies but they are not a toy someone should just jump on a take off with no experience.

I watched a girl die on a rental stand up... she got her head squished between two skis...

I was 7 when it happened, this thread will bring back some old nightmares.

We've had sea doos for 25 years now. They are a ton of fun for the experienced rider, but new riders can be idiots...or just ignorant by no direct fault of their own.

Here is the follow up video of the 5:30 wake jump crash.
A bit graphic. Cut on chin.
