Venice Flooded? Let's Go Surfing!

Old: When life gives you lemons, make a lemonade. New: When Venice floods, go wakeboarding.

That's exactly what Duncan Zuur did at St. Mark's Square:

Duncan Zuur's team pulled a compact, 20 horsepower motor winch from its hiding place and placed it under the square's arches. One team member, clad in rubber boots, pulled the winchs cable about 120 metres across the square and pressed one end firmly into the hand of Duncan Zuur, who had taken the opportunity to get into his wakeboarding gear. Four elegant turns later, the event was over prompting by a standing ovation from an astounding crowd of tourists.

And luckily for Duncan, the police didn't even notice.
