VIDEO: Dude Goes Water Skiing On a Recycled Couch

You may know how to couch surf, but we bet you haven’t couch water skied yet. We spotted this inventive example of furniture reuse and couldn’t help but admire the engineering prowess and skill the rider displays, all while drinking a cold one. The adaptive reuse of furniture is great; we’ve showcased a couch turned into a car, a bike, and now a water-worthy form of transportation – if it ever makes it back to shore in one piece.

The secret to the surfing couch, named “Dirty Hank”, is a wake board screwed to the plywood base and two water skis apparently duct taped to either side. The design seems to offer a smooth enough ride, as the test pilot is able to enjoy a beer — until crossing the tow boat’s wake at least.
