VIDEO: Full-throttle jump

Publish date:

Jet boats have risen to the challenge of white water, open water and shallow, and now they’re taking on land — a beach in this case. Watch this heart-stopping video of a 16-foot Lynx Outlaw using a sandy shore for a launch ramp at Tuchodi Lakes in British Columbia, Canada.

Check out this video shot by Brad Dwernychuk:

“They told us that they were going to jump the boat, so they come wide-open across the lake,” Dwernychuk, 16, of Beaverlodge, Alberta, told Caters News. “We thought they were kidding when they said that, and as they got closer to the jump they sped up.”

“I jumped when they hit it, and then we were really fired up.”
