This is our kind of good time. We don’t know the back story, we don’t know where it happened, but we do know that we want to try it. The quick and dirty on this video is that you’ll see a big Caterpillar excavator parked in the middle of a shallow pond. You’ll also see a guy holding onto what appears to be a rope, sitting in said shallow pond. Things go from interesting to absolutely freaking awesome when the operator of the excavator begins to spin the thing around and around, towing the guy with the rope on water skis!
Once the guy gets up and going, the operator of the excavator begins to extend the bucket, so that the skier gets going faster and faster. The guy has a pretty amazing head of steam when he finally decided to let go. His momentum propels him all the way to the shore! He makes it to the beach with room to spare. The amount of speed generated at the end of that boom is incredible and it certainly reinforces the fact that heavy equipment is 100% totally awesome.
