With all of the high-intensity racing, surf jumping and general hardcore action we’ve been covering lately, we’ve been feeling…well, a little exhausted! So we thought we’d unwind and take in a little video browsing on YouTube when we came across this awesome video from a couple years back.
Filmed and edited by self-described hip hop artist/wakeboarder/action sports enthusiast Collin Gee, this quick jaunt through the painted canyons of Lake Powell makes us want to pack up and head out to the Arizona/Utah border lake for a little desert session. Filmed with a GoPro HD Hero with one of GoPole’s “The bobber” mounts, we got into the groove of the bluesy tunes from musician Jake Andrews as Gee and pals careened through the canals.
Dated July 2011, Gee writes, “I am not into sit-down jetskis, I love stand up jetskis way more, but on Lake Powell sit-down jetski is so fun! My friends in the video [are] Brooke Quigley, Kyle McGroary, Eddie Valdez, Joel Hilliard, Kyle Schmidt, Jeff Hartman, Tino Santori and Ryan Bezemek.” We would also like to note that Gee and friends are briefly filmed riding without proper life vests, and at no time does The Watercraft Journal condone such action as we always want to promote safe riding.
