Surely it's a combination of superior boat design and driving skill?

From the way the guy's standing, I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up with a bloody nose! It looks to me like it's going to dig in/deccelerate* pretty sharpish when it lands.

(*JW: Yeh, I know it should say 'accellerate' )

PS: I've been out in my boat today!
