Geno Yauchler is going to jump a hydrofoil across an oncoming boat. Mastercraft pulling the stunt of course. Nice looking orange X7 I believe.

It's on Discovery Channel (278 on Directv)

Boat was from BAWS IIRC.

I happened across the stunt last night too.

Anyone know how that launch system works? Something the rope was tied to that had a pneumatic cylinder attached it sounded like cuz they adjusted the PSI or something to give more lift when he flips?

It's called an Airsling. Gives a little extra boost on take off and softens up the landing a bit. Here's a link:

Thanks for the link...

Is there a website for Airsling that shows how it works?
