Nice vid & good skills - not what I would call old school though - I expected Magicbats as a minimum, but hoping for Snipes!

OOPS. Should ,of course, have said respect.

Old school enough compared to most videos doing the rounds.
Just goes to show what a low volume edgy, squirty boat is capable of in the right hands.

My first ever boat was a snipe. Made it myself at school.

Anything that can flat spin that wave cant be considered old school in my opinion.

Old school should be a term restricted to displacement hull playboating.

Old school it ain't.

However, nice video and interesting rescue setup at 1.20ish.
Looks like a paddler in position with a swimmer on the deck. Swimmer appears to have a throw line. Not seen this set up before can anyone explain?
I'd be surprised if the swimmer could throw the line far or with good accuracy...

(Prepares to be surprised.)

I think the swimmer is holding a camera rather than a throw line. Nice vid but defo not Old school.

Doesn't appear to be working on my PC.
Going to try to embed it to see if that works:

No paddle spins, shudder rudders or air-guitars. I'm disappointed ;-)
