Woman Is Launched Backwards As She Waterskis Barefoot

This bold woman was trying to bring about a major innovation in waterskiing by forgoing waterskis and shooting along the water on bare feet. While this is certainly commendable, unfortunately for her one of the men on the boat caught the experiment on camera. It is, however, fortunate for us.

In the beginning, it almost looks like she might pull it off, if only because of the raw determination she’s exuding as she rides alongside the boat. But no, she makes her gambit to stand at around 18 seconds in, and then she just sort of disappears.
