Yes it is a great video BUT why do people insist on using streaming video on their websites??? It is SHIT - sorry but it really is.

It seems most big companies like Sunseeker etc use it but don't they realise most people have broadband and would much rather download a nice big file and watch it full screen whenever they like!!!

Who wants to watch a video in a little window not much bigger than a postage stamp???

This is real ribing, not like the ribing the English guys in the 5.5 m. with a too big A-frame do inside the Solent in 1m. waves!

Try what the rest of the Brits do then - the Atlantic/Irish Sea/North Sea aren't exactly calm!!!!

You may think you invented extreme rib rides but have a look at what quinquari get up to in Wales!!! You would be hard pressed to find much rougher water ANYWHERE.

Their predecessors used to run REALLY extreme rides - in the end they gave it up as being too risky - they just build very serious ribs now!!!

Fjordraft. I think you will find the conditions the photo's are taken in are not that bad. What makes the pictures nearly exciting is the fact that the boat is being driven very badly and in a manner that would cause damage and harm to all on board. Perhaps you should bring it over here and we can teach you how to drive a boat in really big seas. Chichester Bar, St Cat's, The Needles, Portland race not to mention any headland around Britain etc etc Alan P

Yah what do you know about it Priddy???

Seriously though where do you reckon the scariest bit of water is that you have been in??? Yes I know it depends on conditions and a million other variables but some places have pretty awesome reputations like the Bitches or skerries etc.

We went around the skerries the other evening .... it got very scary (for us anyway), that and the sand bar at Salcombe on the wrong day are probably the scariest i've been in!
