Wave Jumping

Fall is arriving here in Chicago and the winds are changing direction. The North Easterly winds singnal the begining of large waves. Its been blowing for three days and the waves are ranging from 6-8ft. The lake has absorbed all the summer heat and it hovers around 70 even though the air temp is much cooler.

Our 12ft SIB with a 40hp hurts my back but the Hurricane RIB actually hurts my knees more than anything else!

He's actually wearing a life jacket. It's black and made out of wetsuit material so it's hard to see.

This is probably a really stupid stupid question, but although that looks like a stunning photo, where's the wave? I see plenty of spray but the water doesnt look lumpy enough to get THAT airbourne, how on earth did you manage it?
