Jet Ski Hits Wave, Takes Out $2,500 Camera Drone


When shooting with your pricey camera drone, beware of… flying jet skis. That’s probably not a warning you’ve ever heard before, but check out what happens in this video.

New Zealand-based surf filmmaker Guy Mac posted the video yesterday after shooting at the Yamaha New Zealand Festival of Freeride 2016, which was held near the end of February. During the end, one of the riders hit a big wave, caught huge air, and accidentally took out a $2,500+ DJI Inspire camera drone that was hovering overhead.

Perhaps the jet skier has been playing a little too much Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5.
