    Ah, David Lesh. What a bitch. Too bad he didn't sink with the plane.

    Might not be the best person in the world, but that was a damn well executed emergency water landing in the ocean. Props for that (pun intended).

    Another pilot was filming him at the time??? Did they know each other? Was Lesh practicing touch and goís on the ocean and they were making a video of it and caught a wave too fat? Think thereís more to this story.

    Looks like he got a new toy in June. https://www.instagram.com/p/ByiM4r0F...on_share_sheet

    I am guessing he was doing low pass flying for insta likes. Wouldn't hitting a wave at speed be pretty catastrophic though?

    Either way, he was probably doing something not chill.

    He is quoted as saying something might have been wrong with the fuel, so sounds like the engine pooped out or some kind of power issue.

    Can we get a plane person to verify which plane this is in the picture? His old Lance or the new Bonanza?

    Edit: Looks like the tail of a A36 Bonanza....so the new plane. Would be fishy if it was the one he was trying to sell earlier in the summer.

    He might have some explaining to do. It looks like he is dating this model chick and the second passenger in the plane looks to be another woman.

    Smokeshow for sure, but the fact that she's into David Lesh is a complete and immediate boner killer.

    I prefer clothing brand owners who donít crash planes in the ocean. Freeride Systems FTW!

    I don't believe his narrative that he's self-made.

    Seems like he's good at publicity (most of the ski mag coverage seems to be written by the same person and hits the same points) and someone is good at scrubbing google of negative press when you search David Lesh.

    I had no clue who this person was so I searched. Top search result- DUI attorney out of Oregon.

    Plenty of time for the other asshat with the same name to up his SOE game from prison.

    his appearance of wealth is a sham/ marketing ploy for his brand.

    thereís a parallel discussion going on on this thread too in which this is discussed.

    Seems like you're eating up that made up narrative pretty well.

    Dude has already bankrupted one clothing company and bounced back pretty fast for a self made guy.
