No life jackets? No helmets? No drysuits?

Nice shots guys and very impressive BUT I would have thought that wearing lifejackets would only enhance the pictures.
What we can see are two guys acting irresponsibly.

Wearing a lifejacket anywhere on the water is a MUST

Sunnies

Hey Andre they are obviously very cool dudes as both are wearing sun glasses on what looks like an overcast day, maybe they are to keep the spray from there eyes or maybe they are even flying glasses.

I would advocate the immediate removal of this picture because it could be seen as encouraging bad practice and influence some people who are not able to make their own minds up as to what is acceptable on a board like this;

John you might also consider requiring a certificate from anyone who posts a picture that -

they are over 18 years old

they know the difference between fun and danger

they carry lifejackets flares anchors vhf gps dvd hgv.........


I know that (even as a lawyer who knows about regulation), looking at that picture might tempt me!

Agree

Have to agree with Phil, sorry Manos on this occasion your completely wrong, one should wear a life jacket or buoyancy aid at all times and especially when pulling off stunts like this, being too hot is not an excuse, what happens if the passengers thrown off the back and brains himself on the A frame as he goes through, the boats going so fast that the driver might not notice the accident for bit, by the time he notices and gets back the face down casualty may be past saving!
Besides this the wind chill at 40-50 knots would chill anyone down enough that a slim fitting life jacket wont matter much to heat retention.

Also have to presume as Niels is in Holland and presumably he's playing in the North Sea with this boat that although the air temp may be nice and warm the sea certainly is not. Not all of us are as lucky as you to live in a very warm climate, most of us have to wear protective clothing most of the year or if nothing else carry it as an emergency, if you ever come on my boat (and your most welcome anytime mate) i'll insist on your wearing of a life jacket and most good skippers would do the same, Hey it might even go with those swimming trunks
