Showboating! Daredevil performs PRESS-UPS while water skiing backwards on one foot… without skis

  • Professional water skiier Landen Letwin was filmed going backwards in Ontario
  • In the clip Landen is pulled backwards while holding onto the rope with one foot
  • He then leans down onto the surface of the water and completes five press-ups

A water skier performed pushed the laws of physics to their limits as he performed push-ups on the water while being pulled along by his foot in this incredible video.

Landen Letwin, part of Team Canada’s Water Ski show team, was filmed performing his incredible stunt in Shebandowan, Ontario. 

In the video, professional water skier Landen, from Thunder Bay, Ontario, is seen travelling across the surface of water barefoot, facing backwards, with only one foot holding onto the rope handle for support.

He then leans down and assumes a press-up position on top of the water.

Landen completes five repetitions before amazingly just standing back up on the surface of the water.

The only sign of any discomfort in in his performance came when he corrected his hair which had gotten wet.

 The display of strength and control was uploaded to Landen’s social media on June 20 but has recently been shared online.

Understandably, Landen’s display impressed many on Instagram.

Todd Gladysiewski commented: ‘That’s crazy it had to kill his hands.’

Another account said: ‘Unreal. This is skill I admire.’

While a third commented: ‘So amazing Landen, so fun watching you on the water.’ 

This isn’t the only video on Landen’s social media showcasing his water-skiing skills.

Landen has uploaded other videos where he faces backwards and skis barefoot again while supporting the weight of another person sitting on his back.

Another equally impressive clip shows Landen casually moving around on the surface of the water, assuming different poses and spinning around on the surface of the water at will. 

The clip has been viewed more than 58,000 times on TikTok.
