Watch the man closly and you can see that he turns the steering wheel quickly to the right just before it submerges.

The woman sitting next to him knew it was going to happen because seconds before it went under she turned around, or it could hav been luck.

Yeh, I did this a few times in a VT Jet rib with a PP jet on the back. It had enough bouyancy to not quite get water over the bow, but was pretty impressive doing it from 40 knots! WOT throttle, just play with the bucket settings.

Its a prop ski boat, centre shaft, they should have done a 180 spin out, I've done it a few times years ago in my water ski days. Good fun but you have to hold on!!

is quiet easily done when u don't pay attention, thats a prostar which is designed for lake slalom skiing but people add ballast to get the wake for wakeboard.
