Alright, there have undoubtedly been some amazing crashes gone down on wakeboards over the years. We’ve decided to populate a quick list of our top ten that we have come across on the good ol’ interweb. Unfortunately, some of our all time favorites are not online or we can’t find them (specifically Danny Harf’s taco on the gap rail), and if we’ve missed anything feel free to email us the link to [email protected] we’re happy to do another post if there are some worthy crashes.
As always, wakeboarding is dangerous and you should not attempt any of these ridiculous things you’re about to witness. Be safe, wear a vest, don’t be an idiot.
Here’s round one of the scorpion death snaps! A classic.
The pure ignorance and build up of the driver just continuing to go faster is what makes scorpion death snap two so great. The ending is not for the faint of heart.
You’re going to want to fast forward to 1:25 for scorpion death snap round three. This gem might be my favorite of all them just for his bobble right before he catches.
All hail to the scorpion death snap round four! This poor guy reached for the sky, but it was way too late as his front edge was already fully submerged. The music really sets the tone too.
Get this dude a tetanus shot! In probably one of the biggest acts of idiocy in this post, watch Bobby Waker hitting a bridge in the worst quality video I think I’ve ever seen.
This is a hard one to watch. It’s the second of the two crashes and Jen slides all the way to the end of the rail and doesn’t get off. Props to Jen for being tougher than a lot of you reading this post.
Are volley ball nets in lakes pretty standard in some areas? I know they are in pools, and on beaches, but lakes? This one is all time…
I honestly don’t even know who to blame here, Brad or the dude driving the boat. Either way, this one is scary.
In one of my personal all time favorites, this dude tries to do a “PB signature hop 180” before going into a kicker and catches an edge. I’ve probably re-watched this over a hundred times.
What can I say, Lior Sofer tried to hang on just a little too long and got dealt with. Let this be a lesson kids, don’t hang on too long around the cable because there are typically large objects in the way, and avoid IWWF events in general… they’re a joke.
