Offbeat Video

 This is the awkward moment a snowboarder tries to skim across a pond and ends up faceplanting the slush.

 Jake Strassman captured the incident where an unknown daredevil tried to travel across the Arapahoe Basin in Colorado, USA, on June 2.

 Having successfully made it across the water, the unlucky athlete gets his board caught in the soft snow and goes head over heels into the powder.

 Jake said: “Fails are fairly common but injuries are pretty rare.

“When you fall, you’re falling into water, so risk is minimal.”
