    God I hope she was ok. Too bad you can't fix stupid. Stupid thing is a person with little boating experience will never ask to drive your boat, but will ask to take your sea doo out for a rip. Smaller doesn't mean safer does it.

    The moron on the jet ski would no longer be among us.

    Props to the person on the board for trying to dive out of the way. Most would have froze.

    I already have a strong dislike for jet skiers bc for the most part, they are dangerous, uninformed, no common sense having ass clowns that think its funny to splash people with water and ride too close to others. That jet skier would have mysteriously fell off his jet ski and drowned if I would have witnessed that. Seeing this makes my blood boil.

    I have no patience for jet skiers following while pulling a rider.

    We had this exact thing happen to us at the lake a couple of weeks ago and the jet skier missed my niece by inches. I whipped around and everyone in the boat, including myself, were yelling at him. He drove off with his hands in the air because he had heard enough. Funny thing was, I watched him pull up to a private dock that had a Moomba on a lift. I am guessing he was visiting and it was the Moomba owner's jet ski, because the man at the dock was yelling at him as well and made him get off the jet ski. I try to be tolerant of the jet skiers and have no problem with them jumping my wake if I am not pulling someone and if they keep their distance. Why is it so hard to figure out for these idiots. I am getting mad just thinking about it.

    The thing about a lake is, there isn't an easy escape. I've tracked them down, addressed the person and made sure the owner of the ski is aware of the situation as well as the fact that I've taken down their reg number and am reporting the incident to the DNR.
