Yeah it may take a few more seconds to get back to someone but it beats throwing rollers all the way down the lake from powerturning.
I did it a few times when I was just learning to drive a inboard (Supra Comp) 20 years ago or more.
Had it happen just last weekend as well. We had a skier on the platform putting a ski on when a wakeboard boat went by throwing out a huge roller that came our way. With a skier standing on the platform with a ski on, there is not much you can do other than just let it roll over the bow.
I am very aware of not doing power turns. Sometimes situations arise that you just don't have a good solution for; last weekend was one of those times.
