UK Jet Skiers Terrorizes Kayakers & SUPs For Kicks

By

I don’t think there’s a more hated category of watercraft than the waverunner/jetski and these dudes off the coast of Wales isn’t doing anything to help. ITV reports the video shows a jet skier purposely circling and spraying John Cowtan, 42, and his nephew James, 16. The pair were paddling off Criccieth, Wales on Monday when they were targeted by jet ski riders who intentionally splashed them over and over again. Mr Cowtan had this to say about the incident:

“Their behaviour really annoyed me, more so for my nephew who was really shaken up by the incident. Three or four of them came over and one splashed me as he passed by. I remember wondering what that was all about but I didn’t say anything. Then they went over to a group of paddleboarders and totally took them out. One of them got back up and got back on, but they just wiped him out again. Then they came back to us and tried to capsize us. We had to come in in the end because we were soaked and the kayak was full of water.”

What a bunch of dickwads. Not sure if there are laws about this kind of behaviour but I hope they are indentified and punished accordingly. Paddle on:
