Hi Lillian
It is called boom netting,basically a rope rigging is towed behind the boat up to seven people can go on it at one time each person has to jump into the water and grab hold of the rigging once every body is on, the boat will set off. the wet suits are provided by the boat owners we had been on a trip to Moreton bay from Scarborough the son inlaw and grand daughter are pictured on the front row

I suppose there may be some merit in this strange activity if you can't water ski. None of them look particularly happy about it. Perhaps a modern day equivalent to being keelhauled

Some of them look quite anquished but I admire them for doing it. It is a sport I haven't heard of before.
