Hydrofoil Jump Stunt

STUNT JUNKIES
Episode 19: HYDROFOIL JUMP
Premieres: Feb. 5, 2007

Geno Yauchler wants to break the hydrofoil world record for a distance and height jump. But that's not all ... Geno plans on breaking this record by jumping over an oncoming boat that is speeding directly toward him.

For this spine-tingling stunt, Geno will be towed behind a boat at a speed upward of 45 mph, then launch off a wake that will be created by a huge, oncoming tugboat, and back-flip over an oncoming boat.

If he succeeds, the height and distance needed to clear the boats will both set hydrofoil world records.

and - if he fails, he'll be dead. Sounds awesome - but not for me.

That was some stunt! It didn't look like there was much margin for error. Geno's really something on that foil and no slouch in other types of skiing either!

Sorry, but yer 2 late!!!!!!!Discovery channel dicovered that the stunt was a hoax! Photoshoped even! I can't believe that Geno would do such a thing. Also, the girl that claimed to his wifey. NOT! She is actually posing as an UMP's Girls Gone Wild victim! Now if you really want to see it, I'll sell you a copy that I made on my Beta Max for the low, low price of $49.99. Now thats only for Jim@BAWS. Everybody else gas to pay $59.99. Please let me know asap, because they are going fast. A real collectors item!
