  Sucked into the wake

I had a similar instance happen to me. A fella who was pulling skiers came within a few feet of me sitting still. Right as he got to me he made a turn and sucked me into his wake. It happened so fast I didn't see him coming, the next thing I knew I was pulled backward into his wake. I was able to keep control of my yak but he took off as if nothing happened. I guess I was blessed he was not pulling skiers at the time. A game warden who saw the whole thing said the manner in which it happened made think that it was done on purpose. He went and stopped the guy and scolded him then came and told me I should not be stationary in the middle of the lake. I have not had the same problem again and it has been several years ago. So be careful and aware of surroundings.
