There are about 64 species of fish known as flying fish.
But there are a lot of fish that can jump out of the water. You just don't want to find that out the way this water skier did.

Yep, that flying fish nailed him in the family jewels. It's not a long video, but most guys probably think it's way too long.
This was probably worse than it looked. You have to take into account how fast the water skier was traveling. That adds to the force of the impact (which is apparent since the water skier quickly gives up on his run to see to his damaged goods).
Speaking of damaged, did you see the way that fish splatted back into the water?
I wonder if the fish survived the collision...
Enjoy the outdoors?
