    We all love it when our boats launch off a wave and become airborne. We did lots of that on the way to Bimini this year. Here's one of @SFThoen. Not the best quality of pics (gopro), but you get the idea.
    I'm looking forward to seeing more pics like this, so please add yours.

    Here's a pic of @JROD getting a little air. This was one of my favorites from this years trip. Not bad with 60lbs strapped to the back deck.

    Is this thread going to encourage drone use and boating in rougher waters?! If so I may have a story to tell my wife to let me get a drone! Keep them coming great shots everyone.

    If you look close enough I promise there is a gap between the water and my ski :). I haven't had much luck getting a pic while completely out of the water. The best I have is prelaunch.

    I don't know if this link works for any of you because it's on Facebook, but my wife caught this as we were jumping waves. My BIL thought he was all good with his beer.... NOPE!
    We were jumping the wake from @ZIRB3L 's Super Air on that one!
