Would You Ever Go River Skiing?

Looking for a new way to travel down your favorite river? Two words: river skiing.

What is river skiing? It maybe just what you’re looking for.

Take a look at this pretty sweet video.

I’ll admit that when I first saw the title of this video, I thought it would involve water skis and a boat, or maybe even a truck on the bank of a river.

As you see in the video, there’s no towing device, and the sport looks quite challenging. It’s similar to stand up paddleboards (SUPs), but you have to maintain your balance with a “ski” on each foot.

I seem to remember the Mythbusters trying a similar type of device—and ending up doing a faceplant in the pool.

But, they were trying to run across water, without a paddle.
