Its very possible. Sometimes we ride behid a 16 foot boston whaler and my friends are doing tantrums, backrolls, scarecrows and even 540s. Some pros can even do them with out a wake.

If a tantrum is a back flip you can NOT bunny hop and do a back flip that's crazy, but if you can i really wunna learn how.

yes you can do them behind even a sea-doo/waverunner/jet ski/whatever you want to call it. Done it. Yes you can do them in the flats, and yes, a whirly with no wake is a tweety-bird.

You have to "load the line" then essentially you bunny hop into the trick

Learn to huck really really fast. Most people learn on a bigger wake first and get the feel for it then when they are comfortable they can pretty much do them behind whatever. It helps if you're not tall too.

Check out Shaft, Parks does an ollie backflip to blind. It's not an air roll either, he lands a trick way out in the flats, and with no line tension. He tosses a straight backflip and brings it to blind. About that tantrum, I learned to do them on a boat with a tower, but after I got them down real solid I could do them easy enough without a tower. Some tips for doing it though would be to focus on going higher than far. Most tantrums you see are taken way out in the flats, but it doesn't need to be. Take a pretty fast cut at the wake, then start to change edges at the spray. DON'T start to roll it over until you are in the air. Without a tower, I usually will pull in my legs pretty tight, just to make up for the height. Let me know how it goes.
