Engine cutout

Was out today in interesting conditions, playing with the wake of the Condor wavepiercer. We took the wake, and then after a soft-ish landing the engine cutout. It re-started immediately, but got us a bit concerned. It wasn't the killcord, oil pressure, fuel filters etc all look good. So, that probably means electrics, what do you gurus reckon?

stupid suggestion here - but "mid air" could you have bumped the choke... Yamaha choke is on the ignition key which I stupidly mounted just about knee height... so occasionally I bump it this can either cause the engine to lose power suddenly or make it cutout completely.
