Hitting the asphalt , concrete or rocks will hurt and leave road rash , hitting the water at high speed will hurt you also --------- I was really good at water ski-ing , learned to barefoot , got smashed many of times

Water hurts like hell if you hit it going fast enough.

When I was young and dumb I used to get on the outside of the wake, as far to starboard as possible, and then the driver would cut a hard left, turning the boat around and heading back in the other direction and floor it. It would slingshot me me around the boat, and I'd usually pass the boat (which by then was going 40-45-50) and then when the slack snatched out of the rope it would shoot me back across the wake and I could get some serious air.

I knocked myself out once hitting the water. After a couple of injuries I started wearing a wetsuit. Then I would skip across the water instead of slamming into.

I'm paying for all that fun now every day when I get out of bed.

I jumped out of a boat going 75 mph once, and trust me water ain't any softer at that speed than dirt or??
when I came too, I had a few bruised ribs and a slight concussion!
and I too am surely paying for a lot of the dumb things I did when I was younger now, some days I swear everything hurts from hair to toenails! LOL

and don't kid yourself thinking water is cleaner, as in NO gravel or rocks or??
I have been hit by things like sticks floating, WHOLE darn tree's, all sorts of foreign things floating about in lakes.rivers and bodies of water, seen a few boats get totaled over the yrs having hit something floating in the water.
a few yrs of racing jet ski's and doing power boat poker runs up and down the east coast, I seen a lot of BAD things happen on water, just as I have on land!

heck I even seen a buddy's dog get impaled once on a retrieve of a downed duck, them big water entry's judges like so much at hunting tests, have never been anything to me but bad advice and training, known of more than one dog to get hurt doing them, as the UNKNOWN under water things are what get them(you) hurt !
and there are a LOT of them out there!
but like most things in life, , we all take for granted all will be OK< and most times it is, but only takes once to get the wrong end of things to know the pains LOL

Got me thinking about the speedo thing , could have a Naked and Afraid night ride where all you wear is a speedo and maybe crocks , bare foot would be tuff --- reminds me of the American Picker episode where the old guy rode his side car bike in his yellow speedos
