Default People do the darndest things - extra

Today's Arctic "jet ski" demonstration. This went on for over two hours, only one drowned machine and no drowned participants.

Notice there are three-up in the first two shots and the other guy was doing sharp turns in the water.

Simply crazy. I can't imagine anyone risking their expensive winter transportation for a bit of fun, when the downside is losing the transportation. But it is amazing that they can stay on top of the water at all. Must have been a nice day, I see a couple of people in short sleeves.

P.S. One of these pictures would fit today's bi-weekly challenge (below) - the signs of spring.
