Maybe, but he was running on the edge in light chop at 1:00 of the second vid. I see a lot of dumb drivers that wear seatbelts as well! It looked to me like he's a little unclear on the concept and was asking for disaster. Probably his first day in a new fast boat.

All of you have hit a suprise wave from out of nowhere at speeds of 70 mph or more.
Well hardly a surprise when your going over a wake....

With so little boat in the water what did he think was going to happen should he get airborne, especially with all his weight on one side, balance left to right is just as important as trim for an aft.
At 70 mph on little more than a tea tray with a stupidly oversize engine, he should be wearing a helmet.
Darwin was nearly proved correct again.

seen those second vids many times .. guys pushing it to the limit but dont know how to handle their craft or read the conditions (racing drivers excepted ) .. his fault for sure

On the first vid though,.. do we know he did it deliberately ? or did he have an engine problem ?
