I have to admit that I have been a perpetrator of the ski boat "power turn." At the time it made sense, make the most of your massive inboard engine to quickly recover your skier/boarder/tuber from the water. They are a real fun way to thrill and show off to your guests too. In hindsight, especially with the new breed of big wake boats and pondering the impending $10,000 rebuilding of my rip-rap seawall, there has got to be a better way. This humorous video shows that proper and safe way to retrieve and fallen skier.
