Its not me!

The photo is from a MOD website so I', fairly sure it wil be legit. Judging by the website content I'd suggest the photo was taken froma Halmatic Patrol Craft and the photo was angled off the centre of the patrol craft, hence no stern wave.

Couple of my favorite wave jumping pics. The first one is of Rib.net member Toby Budd which he posted here a couple of years back;

Hi Ben,

Give Slimtim a call - he did some great photos for me last Cowes Week.

Photo was taken from a 56' Sunseeker doing about 17 knots putting up a 5' wake.

I am usally onboard when we get air so it's always a surprise to see the photos. A lot of the time you are way further out of the water than you think!
