I think a couple of those idiot stunts have been posted before.. Can't wait to see one where they loose the wave , like he almost did, and the video how's the boat driving off into the sunset, ghost driver style..... F$$$ing stupid.

You gonna be the first here to give it a shot sandm?

Or is this a stunt for the infamous Wolfe girls?

Agreed its stupid and i have a hard time believing most of them don't have a back up plan, like someone hiding in the boat.

My girls? Probably not. But, my son is a different story. :)

I would agree but he high tailed back on the swim deck when he got far back in the wave. If there was someone in the boat he would have ridden longer IMO. At least finished his beer.

I remember in the late 80s to early 90s, the local waterski show team used to do stunts like that. This was pre-wake surf, so long line skier. The "no one in the boat" where the driver would jump out and the skier would have to pull themselves up the rope until they reached the boat. Of course it was an act. They would hide someone small under the helm to steer via radio communications. It lasted in the show, until the boat crashed into a pontoon.

I would just hide my beer buddy in the opposite locker. Plus how come there are 2 beers on his table? I know I just ruined it for everyone . I was going to do it this summer but never had enough time. I also had another idea on this thaat would be real interesting but not going to spill the beans :)

Good eye Doc. I've seen that vid a few times but overlooked the table. Even if there weren't a guy hiding in the boat, there could be a waverunner within binocular range watching. I figure if the dude fell they could be on the boat in less than a minute with their acceleration and speed.

This is still one of my all time favorite "ghost ride" videos - even if it's not a boat. Talk about a moron.

Wow, just wow

Gotta give it to him, though. He was committed and saw it all the way through. I'm thinking you get back in the truck as it jumps onto the curb.

I was watching that Malibu,

IDK it looked to be going pretty dam straight. I know my boat wont go straight on its own when you let go of the wheel surfing. It goes right into a tight turn towards the wave.

both my boats have tracked fairly straight when not piloted. I've been able to go grab a beer while driving/surfing an empty evening lake pretty easy and not lose the line..
