Dronesurfing

Drones, despite many recent advances in technology, still get a bad rap in many circles for their participation in creepy spying and/or bombing. But now we can add dronesurfing to the list of benign drone activities, thanks to a new promotional video from Freefly that demonstrates how this new sport works.

Dronesurfing is basically like water skiing but with a surfboard instead of skis, and a Freefly Alta 8 (or some other drone of roughly equivalent capabilities) instead of a boat. It might not seem possible, but the video shows how it works in pretty clear detail, and I don’t think it would be in Freefly’s interest to fake such a thing—then again, you never know.

Nevertheless, the dronesurfing demonstration from Freefly looks pretty authentic, and you can check it out for yourself below. For more from the brand, head over to the official Freefly site right here.
