Interesting.....might be fun for the first few days.
Wakeboarders have been doing that for years, so not that new of an idea.

Surfing still requires more skill than either of the above IMHO. :D

Why not do it on ONE ski?

pretty cool

so you could kneeboard or ski behind your boat instead of surfing also on the wave

Dude was a snow skier not a water skier. He's actually riding alpine fat skis and boots. I bet thats fun to swim in, poles are for balance, if you keep your hands/poles where you can see them you don't let a shoulder fall behind you and make better carved turns. I think a set of old school 72inch jumpers would be the hot setup.

They're not snow ski poles, they are big wave ocean poles. Come on, get with the sport.

I have seen videos of skiing on a boat wake, I'm going to try that this summer on my wake hoppers............
