Wakeboarding the traditional way behind a boat just seems boring compared to how one man recently cruised down a canal.
In a video posted online Monday, professional wakeboarder Jorge Gill jumps into the murky water and grabs the tow rope, which just happens to be attached to the spoiler on a Ferrari F50. The driver of the Ferrari guns it and Gill is suddenly standing up and flying down the calm waterway.
You can see from Gill's helmet camera how quickly he is moving . Gill eventually reached 135 km/h before letting go and crashing into the water.
