Amusing indeed. That said, I can think of a few individuals on here who have emulated those antics but with their RIBs. And others from offsite who have managed nearly all of them - so we have quite a bad rep ourselves....

Growing up with both jetskis and boats I am aware of tw*ts on both sides.

One thing I do notices spending a lot of time in Brixham marina is there are more people on boats breaking the rules but nothing gets said but when a jet skier does all hell breaks loose. I am not defending them as these were the people that ruined it for me due to the continual hassle but does make me laugh that they are considered the hells Angels of the water

Wasn't the first one a snowmobile? Why else would it take off from the beach?
