Wow, that really was like glass - beautiful.

I'm amazed at just how quick those jetskis are, that yellow one went off like a rocket.

They start to hurt at 40 knots when it gets even a little bit rougher than that

'kin 'ell.

Must be huge fun to ride. I couldn't believe the acceleration of the yellow beastie in your video.

Having been injured by water impact at much slower speeds, I reckon you'd simply disintegrate at 75mph.

Kill cord fairly important.
