Video reveals wakeboarder on Worcester floods

Worcester News: The wakeboarder takes to the Severn floods in Worcester The wakeboarder takes to the Severn floods in Worcester

THIS video reveals how one person made the most of the recent floods in Worcester - by wakeboarding.

The man, understood to be Worcester wakeboarder Alec Foster, is seen on the banks of the flooded river Severn, being dragged by a rope, which witnesses claim was attached to a generator.

It is understood the video was taken from outside Brown's Wine Bar in the city.

Christopher Ritson, who posted a video of the exploits on YouTube (below), wrote: "A great clip I took when I was near the river Severn in Worcester.

"By pure chance, when I called in to town and saw someone about to reel in some rope using a generator/engine, it just happened to have a water skier attached to the other end."

Maybe this is what the Council's report on Worcester Tourism was recommending when it said we should make moor of the flooding.

How about an annual wakeboarding festival on the flooded racecourse?

Maybe we could even build up the edges and artificially flood it as a massive boating lake when the racing wasn't on. :-)
