Offbeat Video

By Jack Williams


This heart-stopping footage shows a fearless jet boat rider catching some air, jumping their vehicle straight out of the water and over dry land.

The boat can be seen racing across a lake before zooming up the sands of a beach.

As it hits the thin strip of land, the boat takes off, hopping in the air before landing in the lake on the other side.

The jaw-dropping moment took place at the Tuchodi Lakes in British Colombia, Canada.

It was filmed by Brad Dwernychuk, 16, from Beaverlodge, Alberta, Canada, and recently gained attention when featured on an Instagram account for jet boat enthusiasts.

Brad, who did not know the individuals who owned the 16-foot Lynx Outlaw boat, said: “They told us that they were going to jump the boat, so they come wide open across the lake.

“We thought they were kidding when they said that, and as they got closer to the jump they sped up.

“I jumped when they hit it, and then we were really fired up.”
