Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
How far do you think he fell?
Yes sir, that kind of stuff was ok here at lake pueblo for years, until one to many people died, and now anything airborne is verboten. Party poopers.
As a lifting body, the raft is inherently unstable. I'm amazed he kept it upright as long as he did.
A very good way to snap your neck. I don't think you can even buy them anymore.
The wake looks narrow and small, which tells me there is some good velocity. Maybe 35 mph. And hitting the water at that speed, I can tell you, you had better tuck and roll. The fall only complicates one's high speed escape plan.
In the 70's, Dad had a ski boat designed for Cypress Gardens where they towed ~dozen skiers. About 16-17 ft, with a 318 Chrysler 4brl carb, with a v-drive. Whack the throttle open, and by the time it was on plane, it was doing about 55mph. It didn't really have a wake when on plane, but it had a vicious one when moving in displacement mode.
