Bye the way, I feel the same way.

All these videos don't help our cause, but if that is real that is one crazy stupid *&%$.......

txmxer 12-17-2011 12:03 AM

He should get fined to the point where he cant afford to have the wakesetter anymore. Thats just stupid. What if another boat just came up and lost their rider and the boat was headed straight for that rider? Thats a good way to get someone hurt or killed. I wouldnt want to risk that 1% chance of something going wrong if I was incredibly confident in my riding, though in this case its way bigger than 1%.

No problem bro
 
No problem bro. Just be happy with what you are posting

Jackass .If he thinks he's cool ,he's a f@#@ing fool.I can't stand stupidity,especially on that level.Think of how wrong that could go a$$@#@e!!!!!!!!

slowwwflowww 12-17-2011 6:31 AM

Excuse my language.

RedRum 12-17-2011 9:31 AM

I was hoping that the video would end with him running a $70k boat aground.

Fourspeednup 12-17-2011 9:50 AM

That guy needs 2 things:

1) More weight
2) Vinyl Sauce for the dirty interior lol

It's basic knowledge that proper ghost riding technique requires a clean platform to perform said ghost ride.

grant_west 12-17-2011 11:13 AM

I did notice 2 open beers on the table. But that's not a smoking bullet. IMO typical bud light drinker (opened empty beers everywhere) not in the trash.
Lol lol. I'm just surprised he is not blasting hip hop threw a pair of 485's

wakeworld 12-17-2011 11:35 AM

Two beers, two wakeboards in the board racks and the latches on the storage compartment don't look latched (although it's hard to tell). Busted!

hatepain 12-17-2011 4:16 PM

No ones that stupid. There has to be a person hiding just as you guys said.

Just a matter of time! Sooo this is illegal and these tools are posting this online?Just like i thought,out of touch with reality!!Wonder how they'd feel if they hurt or killed someone.So this is adressed to those bumbling rejects"stop the madness and stop posting vids that'll surely inspire further idiotic attempts!!!!!

snork 12-17-2011 7:38 PM

NOT impressed what so ever
Daddy needs to take his boat back before he regrets

I think you catch a glimpse of the other rider at the 36 second mark. This was noted by a guy on the Malibucrew. I think you can barely see the forehead and hair behind the guy with the camera.

Regardless, the entire concept is foolish, to put it mildly.

wakebrdjay 12-18-2011 9:32 AM

I just can't believe people document it on film,it will make nice evidence for the plaintiff's lawyer when they do kill or seriously injure someone.

kenteck 12-19-2011 11:21 AM

just stupid,
some people are really board

Wiatowski 12-19-2011 8:58 PM

Second video G posted you can see the shadow of the person steering on the seat..... That being said these people obviously have no regard for people or their things. I would kill to have a nice wakeboat, and these morons treat it as nothing. Some people have more money than brains I guess.

I agree with you bro. Thats right

dbdb 12-20-2011 2:36 PM

I guess this is just the parent in me coming out...but I can't imagine what I would do if some idiot did this and it some how ended up causing harm to either of my sons. I just don't think I'd be able to control myself. Even if there was someone in the hatch, its still extremely irresponsible. It never ceases to amaze me how rarely people consider ALL the consequences of their actions.

camassanger 12-21-2011 4:05 PM

Crazy! I just saw a ghostrider video on Tosh.O - jeez. This knucklehead was doing it with his subaru race car, and he lost it...

These guys are nuts!

fullspeed 12-21-2011 9:32 PM

I think it is funny that people are getting heated over this video. Let's get real folks, someone else was there incase the guy fell no doubt. Great video, I like the mystery and the drama it caused.

humboldt9 12-21-2011 10:42 PM

Lame... I don't get the point, or the thrill.

srock 12-22-2011 12:54 PM

I bet most of these are a good nature hoax but you never know who may do it for real just to say they did it.

About 25 years ago while in college I watched a very accomplished barefooter driving his boat solo while holding the wheel and footing outside the boat. I also saw him backwards barefooting in front of a stand up type jetski he was driving. He ran into a dock but was OK. While footing on my boom I thought he would pull it off the boat. He was amazingly nuts. He died many years later in a scuba diving accident.

grant_west 12-22-2011 1:30 PM

(Full Speed) I agree with you. People getting all worked up and making threats about doing things to people IF they caught them doing stupid and hurting their Kid's!
Im guessing these people have never done anything reckless like driving fast or texing and driving ect/ to put others peoples kids or family in danger. All is I can say its good to know that their are a few SAINTS still out there.

dbdb 12-22-2011 2:54 PM

I am not getting all worked up about this or not really making any threats, I realize I came off that way. I just posted my reaction to that video. I thought what they did was dumb and didn't see the point in doing it. Its just my opinion.

Since Ive had kids, I've become a little over protective and i know it. G and Fullspeed, I'm guessing you don't have kids, and that's ok, but you might think differently when or if you do (ie watch people possibly put the public in harms way to shoot a "cool" video). On my particular lake, there is no vacant land so if something goes wrong, someone or something is going to get run in to. I guess I was just thinking about my situation on my lake. Perhaps I am in the wrong to make general assumptions, but would you want this guy doing that I front of your house with your boat outside or (more importantly) your kids playing on the beach? I'm guessing not, once again though, maybe I am wrong.

I do not text while driving and have never recklessly driven. I do not consciously put people in harms way the way this guy did. He shot this video purposely to show that he is super cool because he did. It's what people are responding to..."is he going to be able to do it / what happens if he can't." If he really just wanted to show that he could surf from and up to the platform he could have done just that. If he just wanted to show what a super confident wake surfer he was, there are other ways.

I'm not trying to stir the pot any more, just explaining my point of view.

srock 12-22-2011 3:01 PM

The video is a fake and different versions of it have been done for years. I remember seeing a version of this in the early 80's at either Seaworld or Cypress Gardens with big laughs when the hidden driver stood up. Every kid should make one of these.

mike2001 12-23-2011 10:09 AM

Poor guy, too old to be trying that hard to be cool.

stang_killa_ss 12-28-2011 1:50 PM

what a terrible wake
