That's either really dumb or a bad case of tunnel vision. Why not wait for the traffic chopper to fly over?

He was probably just showing off for the slimmies and they will really love him with the 42 stitches across his eyebrows, if he wakes up from the coma!

Yes, hes been riding that spot for 10yrs and never came close to the top, he was not on my boat.
He Messed up his leg a knee really bad, went through a couple surgeries and lost some muscle in his leg. Doc said he will never ride again, but he disagrees with the doc, he has already been wakesurfing on his A$$, still in a full soft cast, but doing really well for what happened, he is a fearless,tuff kid, thats for sure!!!

To quote one of the smartest men I've ever seen


"Stupid is as stupid does....."



I am glad he's ok. That had to smart!

But is that lake really short so that one spot is the only spot to jump the wake?

Maybe he was trying to scrape the logos of the bottom.

Glad he's not dead.

wow....... that is painful to watch. I don't think these kids were smart at all. They flew through a no wake zone, a girl is riding on the sunpad (illegal in most states), and he is doing flips under and into a bridge. Glad to hear he is ok but dumb all the way around.

I'll tell you breaking a leg in the water is one of the scariest things I've ever encountered.

The broken limb floats... and you still have to get the ski/board off. its nasty.

OK, I'm even more convinced that he's an idiot. Riding there for 10 years, smarter than the doctor, riding with a cast. That's the attitude that got him bounced off the side of a bridge. I bet he owns a jetski too!

if I had wanted you to vomit I would have described fully my right ankle being above my left shoulder with the ski on it.

Then grabbing it and pushing it back into place.

Nasty nast.
