When trying to skim a UTV across deep water there really is no room for error. You either make it or you don’t and in this guy’s case, coming up short has consequences. That was probably not a fun recovery project.

Growing up in Oregon, most of Seth's involvement in the powersports world was limited to what he saw in magazines and videos. Following a brief stint in the corporate world, Seth took a flying leap (literally) and moved to California to pursue a career in freestyle motocross. Though short lived, the opportunity immersed him in the industry and is now a well-established off-road writer.
