On Saturday morning, just outside Akron, Ohio, the true identity of Captain Planet was revealed in his epic battle vs. the all new X14. For the benefit of all, Captain Planet braved the elements of 49 degree water, 50 degree air and rain, to bring us all the following photo's of the X14 wake.
Enjoy.

Thank you jkski for those revealing photos. It was nice to be on the water, however do me a favor next time and insist that I use your dry-suit. I'm not sick or anything, but my back is letting me know it would have been nice to be a little warmer. This was my first experience at being in the water and having my skin tingle because it was soo cold.

Anyway, I will hopefully get another crack at the X-14/214 when I can concentrate on how the boat skis rather than being distracted by how freaking cold I was.....but it was still worth it! :D

The sheer excitment of getting to ski behind the new boat clouded my vision. Those pictures represent the 3rd time in my life that I can ever remember being so cold that it took over my thoughts. I was concentrating more on how cold I was and how constricted my body was rather than how well the boat skiied......but I got to ski behind the 214!

Did the boat at least have a hot water shower for you to warm up with? Heater with a hot tube?

There was a heater, but no shower. I am assuming if there was a shower jkski would have let me know. I just put on a sweatshirt and pants and warmed up the heater blowing on my feet.

That proves if you want to go bad enough nothing else matters. Crap I just gained some respect for a Buckeye Fan, what's next?
