Friend in question is more than happy to borrow my camera to see if he can catch the moment.
Which he almost did*. As you can see from the new userpic the rear wheel hasn't quite lifted yet. The full photo is beneath the cut along with a pretty shot of a rainbow on (in?) the Captain Cook Waterjet.
EDIT: So far most of my userpics were taken by friends with my camera. I'm kinda liking that. A lot. :)
