Don't Try This at Home! Wild Boat Backflip Attempt Ends with a Splash


A lot of the insane stunts we show here are of the "don't try this at home" variety, and this boat backflip attempt gone wrong from out of Australia should definitely come with that warning tag.

As you can see from the above video, the dude behind the wheel seriously guns it, trying to get enough acceleration to pull off a sweet stunt, but ends up crashing hard. Who knows if the guy was legitimately trying to pull off a full backflip (that's just what the video title says), because I can't imagine that he actually thought he'd be able to land it, no matter how much power he gave the boat.

Either way, the boater does the one thing you absolutely, under no circumstances should do after getting flung from a boat and that's SWIM STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE PROPELLER! Come on, buddy! Be better than that!
