Once summer rolls around, if you’re not on, in, or around water as much as possible, you’re probably having a bad time.
Sure, enjoying a nice, relaxing time at the pool is all well and good, but if you’re looking to make the most of a summer day, there’s nothing quite as epic as heading to the closest lake and zipping around on a personal watercraft. Preferably one that has some serious kick to it, if you catch my drift.
Unfortunately, I don’t have access to so much as a pedal boat at the moment (I know, it’s sad), so I have to live vicariously through awesome videos of on-the-water action. Like ones from YouTuber Nick Stanley, for example. Selfie stick in hand, this dude looks like he’s having the time of his life just sailing over the water in his customized mini boat.
Nicknamed Lil Wake, this 110-HP beauty was perfectly built for a wild time on the water, as Stanley points out in the video’s description.
“This is my 1988 Addictor 333 mini boat,” Stanley writes. “It came with an 40hp Nissan outboard motor. Throughout the past two years I have completely restored and modernized this mini with a custom retrofitted SeaDoo powerplant.”
“I used the 110hp engine, 144mm pump and other equipment from a 1996 SeaDoo XP. I gave it a new paintjob and vinyl graphics, as well as a fully custom interior and aluminum interior frame. The boat has a top speed of 50 MPH with 2 (LARGE) adults onboard.”
If you don’t think that riding around on this thing would be one of the funnest things of all time, sorry to break it to you, but you’re probably dead inside.
