Let’s go wakeboarding in Venice

So with Venice flooded, what’s a citizen to do?  Uh, go wakeboarding obviously.  At least that’s what Duncan Zuur did at St. Mark’s Square.

Duncan Zuur says he has always wanted to cross the famous Italian piazza on a wakeboard … the problem being it is not normally covered in water.
But as Venice suffers its worst flooding in a generation and St Mark’s is submerged under a meter of water the delighted Dutchman finally got his chance.
Yesterday Duncan attached a cable to a winch at one end of the square and his wake-board at the other, he then retracted the cable and sped across St Mark’s, much to the confusion of onlookers.
