Not to highjack too much but here is the greener alternative to tow in. Also strapless.......

That's pretty amazing, but why not ride it on a surfboard so that you can turn and rip through the wave without looking like you're just barely hanging by a thread the entire time. You can see that the board isn't tracking.....it's sliding sideways with the nose pointed toward the camera.

Huge props for being able to stay on the board and do that. A surfboard looks like more fun though.

I used to skim all up and down in Malibu and zuma. Catching decent size shorebreak and riding that in was tough enough. I can't imagine how hard it was for him to ride such big waves on a skim board. Nutty.

Jarrod, he is breaking new ground. He has some other videos where he is doing Ollie 3s, 360 shuvits, and big spins on huge waves. You can't do some of the stuff he does on a surfboard.
It reminds me of wakeskating vs wakeboarding. Similar but different
