Have you ever been this happy??


Take a look at that dude in the picture above, Aleksander Gamme, an Arctic Adventurer type, he did a three-month trek to the south pole, alone.  Along the way he would leave himself stashes of stuff, he would gradually leave his things along the way as he got tired or needed to be lighter.

That picture shows him near the end as he is exhausted and hungry, having lost 25 Kilos (I believe I heard that right, i was tipped to this from the Radio Lab show on NPR HERE)

Quick side note: he did a bunch of these little 3 minute videos along his trek, but, this one in particular is fantastic.

As he digs through the stuff he buried he is finding a bunch of junk, stuff he doesn't need..and then....

 
If you aren't smiling and happy for this guy, you have no soul. Even though you don't understand a word that he is saying, that right there is pure joy. Thanks Radio Lab for turning us onto this, so awesome.

Update: when you finish watching this video, listen to this song, then go out and dominate the world

If the Harlem Shake with wakeboarders was not your style then maybe a version with college skiers at Bennetts is more to your liking.

Its not?  You don't like the Harlem Shake meme?  ARE YOU A COMMUNIST?  IS THIS RUSSIA?  GO BACK TO SIBERIA YOU RUSSIAN SPY!!

I have no idea where this Harlem Shake meme came from but its everywhere now and it would seem that even the water sports industry is not immune from it.

So, about June's foot...

In case you missed it, and/or been living under a rock, June Fladborg hasn't been skiing in quite as while as she recovers from a foot injury.

Not just any normal foot injury either, but....


AHHHHH!!!!!!

Waterski Magazine has an article on their website, waterski mag, that goes into more detail about the injury, recovery, etc, its certainly worth a click over, its only a few days old too!

But, here is one of the interesting parts that we are trying to figure out, from June about how the injury happened...
“My heel slipped when I was off in the air, and I pushed into my lean a little early,” she says. “I wasn’t used to the high incline. I went into a flight position, and with my heel out of the boot a little bit I didn’t have enough control to get the skis back. I thought I got the ski back and by then didn’t have time to roll before I landed.”
So, basically, her foot came out of the binding?  We aren't super clear on it, but, man, ouch.

One of two scenarios is how we thing, she hit the ramp so hard that her feet broke on the ramp and then wiped out, OR with the wind pushing the skis it sort of pushed her foot a bit out of the binding and then with the height she was at, upon landing it messed up her feet?

Option two seems more probable, I swear I wish I was good enough at watersking to be going so damn hard core that the wind pushes my skis off, if you have seen any of us jump, with a strong enough gust of wind we just land right back on the jump.  #lol #waterskijoke

As the global leader in all waterski news its surprising that we haven't learned more about this sooner, but, as it turns out being the only news provider in this economy is tough.

That all being said, do please click on over to the waterski magazine article, its a good read and details a bit more about her road to recovery, we all certainly do wish her good health and look forward to seeing her back on the water.
