Looks like a mighty stable craft that.

Got a fair amount of positive trim dialed in when he gets it wrong!

seen the bass boat one a few times and recon he was heading for trouble as Jon says real stable lucky escape

But this one with what looks like a 25'ish Stuphen is something you see people doing regularly for fun ... wake jumping ... although it looks like he hit the wave at a bad angle plus to much trim and bang he was unlucky and expensive mistake

Using aerodynamic lift can be dangerous....
