Big wave skiing, yes you read that right

Oh man, this looks amazing. For those of us who love both the snowy mountains and the big waves of the ocean…this is pretty much the best of both worlds. The always awesome Peter Kray turned us on to this video. Mike Douglas and Cody Townsend had a “unique experience” by skiing big waves in Maui. Yes, skiing them. Salomon USA’s Mike Aicher said: “Just wanted to let you all see what some of our winter sport athletes have been brainstorming, and pushing the limits of what is possible.  It may not be for everyone, but if you are a fan of wind, waves, snow, or air, this is pretty crazy to watch…..Mike Douglas and Cody Townsend are two of our Big Mountain Alpine ski athletes, and they spent some time working on getting out in the Maui surf to be among the first to be able to say that they have Skied Big Waves.”

Sick. Enjoy the video.
