We’ve all seen some great drag racers in our time. You turn on the TV one weekend afternoon or you start browsing videos on Youtube and you see two drivers lined on up at the white line. Then, with just a simple change of that peculiar traffic light, they go from 0-to-obscene in their rate of acceleration.

Impressive as it is on the drag strip, changing the venue to a lake and the vehicles to speedboats makes for a grand spectacle, with this dutifully captured video showing what it’s like when the environment is switched up. From Lake Havasu, Arizona (which sits right at the border with California) comes two drag boats that take off down the lake. While they speed to the other side of the lake in a matter of seconds, the stunning water display they leave in their wake is borderline magical.
