    Video: Renters Avoid Near Fatal Crash, Endangering Beach Goers


    Normally, this is not the sort of thing you’d find here at The Watercraft Journal, solely because we purposely try to avoid the glorification of people misusing personal watercraft in any form. But this footage is so dramatic, it’s almost mandatory viewing.
    What you’re witnessing is a pair of renters having their afternoon narrowly cut short by another pair of renters veering uncontrollably too close to shore and eventually colliding with the beached Yamaha VX WaveRunner, catapulting the riders airborne.

    This of course, will bring rider safety and renter aptitude into question. It is almost a punchline how little renters are instructed in the ways of riding, and owners are all but left to their own devices once they leave the showroom floor.

    While we’re not advocating boater licensing for PWC, accidents like these are far too prevalent to be left unchecked. Below we’ve included the original description of the collision as well as the video itself:

    Yeah she could have been killed,it was going straight for her head..

    Does anyone know why he plowed into the ski?...
    Was it a rental the guy a noobie to PWCs ,was he drunk,was the passenger hurt seriously?

    It's looks somehow he was engaging the throttle to hit that hard and go airborne ,how come so close to shore like that?

    Thanks. There's another copy on YouTube as well.

    The article would've been updated last night were it not for some teething issues as we develop The Watercraft Journal 2.0 - we'll be up to speed shortly.
