We’ve all seen those rowdy end-of-season gatherings where seasonaires and holidaymakers, high on dutch courage, attempt to slide a strip of water on their snowboards. Maybe you’ve even had a go yourself. There are rarely any prizes at stake, just the adulation of a crowd of punters if you make it – or the indignity of swimming around in ice cold water while everyone laughs at you if you don’t. This Youtube vid takes things to a new level, though – according to the description it’s a Guinness World Record. We’re not even sure if Norris McWhirter and co bother to measure these things, but we’re not gonna quibble; it’s loooooong! The grainy filming, the dirty trance music and the muppets lying around in rubber rings only adds to the entertainment value. And make sure you stick around for the less successful attempts afterwards, cos let’s face it that’s what everyone really wants to see isn’t it?
