This Incredible Waterskiing Record Is Not What You Expect

No, this isn’t about a dude getting pulled by a plane. This world record is much cooler. And the guy who set it has the best attitude imaginable.

“We think we set a world record but who really cares,” writes pilot Kevin Quinn, captioning his own video on skimming water for no less than 36 miles with his tall ‘tundra’ tires.

I can’t get over how awesome this looks, and how nonchalant the pilot is about the whole affair. Bush pilots are something else.

(Hat tip to Ryan!)
