I spent a very exciting afternoon photographing jet ski racing for the first time yesteday. Those guys and girls are mad and talented and fearless in equal amounts.

I must admit that this was one of my most enjoyable times photographing.

These are just a few of the first to be processed.

C&C very welcome as always

Yeah, these are great shots. It is also a ton of fun to shoot these guys 'freeriding' in the surf. Normally an ocean thing but sometimes we get big enough waves for them here on Lake Michigan. Not mine, but one of may favs:
