Men Wakeboard Through Floodwaters Amid Heavy Rain in New Zealand’s Coast

Locals in Gisborne, New Zealand, took advantage of the flooded roadways on November 4, by wakeboarding through waves while being pulled by a vehicle.

Video shot by Paul Lee shows the two men surfing through the floodwaters.

A state of emergency was declared in Gisborne as heavy rain raised river levels and flooded riverbanks, leading to roads closures throughout the area, according to reports.

More rain was forecast to hit the region before subsiding in the coming days. Credit: Paul Lee via Storyful
