The Yamaha New Zealand Festival of Freeride 2016 was the location for the fist ever drone-jet ski mid-air collision.
Photographer Guy Mac captured this impressive collision from a perfect angle. The jet ski rider launched off of a wave propelling him to the same height as the drone filming him. The jet ski crushed the $3,000 DJI Phantom drone and the ocean did it’s part as well.
