Crazy Video WATCH: Wakeskater Shreds Through Icy Cape Cod
Professional wakeskater Brian Grubb took a once-in-a-lifetime chance and ripped through the rare "icebergs" in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, last week.
A video of Grubb wakeskating shows him performing amazing stunts and maneuvering through the frozen chunks of ice and snow in the Atlantic Ocean.
This morning, Grubb, a Red Bull sponsored athlete, explained to Bill Hemmer on "America's Newsroom" exactly what the sport is.
"Wakeskating is just like an offshoot from wakeboarding," Grubb said. "It's basically like skateboarding on water. You ride a board that doesn't have bindings on it at all so you're not attached ... You're just trying to do skateboard tricks, but on the water. It's really fun and popular down here in Florida."
Grubb said that he recently took a trip to Bosnia where he went wakeskating and decided that he wanted to take advantage of the unusual conditions back in the United States, since snow has pounded the northeast U.S. this winter.
He told Hemmer that it was pretty cold in Cape Cod, unlike what he is used to in Orlando, Florida, where he lives.
"We didn't get an exact temperature, but, yeah, it was probably in the 30s or low 40s or something," Grubb said. "With all that ice in there, it was definitely cold. It was pretty windy that day, so the wind chill was definitely cutting through [my wetsuit]."
