Offbeat Video

Professional water skier Jack Critchley, 22, steals the show in this video as he rides the waves of a fellow wake-boarder after switching from his own wave.

Wakeboarding, where the board is pulled by a boat and the boarder can perform jumps, is a popular activity on Lake Windermere, Florida.

Jack said, “I don’t wake-board, but I am a professional water ski jumper! 

“I wake-surf and do fun things on the lake as a hobby but I managed to do this on my first attempt. 

“The guy’s wake on the lake was bigger than ours so I said to my driver to take me close and I’ll go on his! 

“It was a fun moment, it was something I never tried before so it was fun to do.”
